Like you, Cal Rotaract also has new goals for the year. Discover our new year’s goal of “sustainable service” and how we hope to accomplish it at our first general meeting! ?
We will first welcome a veteran Berkeley Rotarian guest speaker to talk more about our service organization and a near future opportunity for all members. Then, we will welcome on some officers to speak about upcoming events and projects!
For our Welcome Week, we have a wonderful line-up of events planned:
Committee Night: http://tinyurl.com/
Family Night: http://tinyurl.com/
Service Saturday: http://tinyurl.com/
Starting your new Rotaract journey can start here. It is never too late to see what we have to offer—we welcome you all, new and returning members, to join us! ?
If you need even more motivation, there will be FREE PIZZA!!! Skip Crossroads and cooking dinner for one night—Rotaract will take care of it.

This will be Cal Rotaract’s first official Family System event. This will be a night for members new and old to learn all about the Family System and to get to know the officers that will be heading each of the families in the system, so they figure out which family will be the best fit for them. The theme is online dating, so the introduction video and activity will follow typical questions and appearances of common dating websites. At the end of the night, all paying members will be able to choose a family they would like to be a part of. This will be a fun night of mingling and getting to know the Rotaract Spring 2017 team!

Welcome week is here and it’s time to meet the Committee Chairs!
Cal Rotaract is the largest service organization at UC Berkeley. To ensure progress on our service initiatives, the club is organized through 4 committees. Come out to this event to meet the Committee Chairs, find out how to join, and learn about our upcoming service projects for this semester.
LOCAL COMMITTEE is in charge of organizing local events around the Bay Area, and delves into social issues affecting the greater East Bay. Past service projects include events taking place in homeless shelters, schools, food kitchens, parks, daycare centers, and senior homes.
INTERNATIONAL COMMITTEE is in charge of bringing international issues to the attention of our club members. In the past they’ve packed medical supplies to ship abroad for school feeding programs, built low cost prostheses for low income individuals in foreign countries, and mapped roads and buildings in West Africa to assist the WHO in the public health fight against Ebola!
INTERACT COMMITTEE outreaches to our high school affiliate organization: Interact. They organize joint events with local high school Interact clubs and coordinate our biannual Interact Stayover, where high schoolers from around the Bay Area come up to UC Berkeley for a weekend to learn more about college and the continuation of service into higher education and beyond.
ROTARY COMMITTEE outreaches to our adult-run parent organization, Rotary International. The committee organizes events that link Cal Rotaract with this powerful network, by hosting a mentorship program, putting on conjoined events with Rotary, facilitating professional development workshops, and sponsoring their event of the semester– Ignitus, a Ted Talks inspired event to show that service doesn’t just stop after college.
Hope to see you there next Wednesday as our committees reveal their service themes for this semester!
