Leaders of Tomorrow Conference
What is Leaders of Tomorrow?
Leaders of Tomorrow is the yearly district Interact kickoff event aimed at rallying Rotary District 7980’s Interact Clubs for the upcoming year during fall where Interact club officers, members, and future leaders come to. The purpose of Leaders of Tomorrow is to provide the Interact Clubs with a means to converse and work with each other in hopes of building positive relationships between them. Leaders of Tomorrow also discusses how to maintain Interact Clubs, with topics ranging from district requirements to building up club membership. At the same time, there are also sessions run in parallel for people who do not currently have an Interact Club, but who would be interested in starting clubs within their school or community. The district will point these potential Interactors to valuable Rotary resources that will help with starting the club, as well as guide them through the process of registering their club. Lastly, Leaders of Tomorrow also sets the District’s service area of focus for the year, with groups of Interactors cooperatively planning potential service projects that have the potential to evolve into full fledged District Conferences! Ultimately, the end goal of Leaders of Tomorrow is to ensure that the district’s Interact Clubs will have an extremely positive year.
Please direct further questions to Mark Morgano, the Interact District Chairperson.
Interact Club Citations
What are Citations?
Every year, Rotary International and Rotary District 7980 issue citations to deserving Interact clubs as a way of recognizing their achievements and efforts over the past year. Achieving a citation reflects an Interact club’s ability to represent the local and international communities of Rotary, work together with their sponsoring Rotary club(s), and engage their members at the district level.
