By Rotary Service and Engagement Staff
Thousands of Rotary and Rotaract members around the world came together in late June for the first-ever Rotary Virtual Convention to connect, learn, and share their passion for doing good in the world.
Through the general and featured breakout sessions, members connected with the family of Rotary to discover inventive ways to engage, increase our ability to adapt, and learn new skills that will strengthen your club and community. You can find recordings of these sessions on the convention website.
Our inspiring breakout sessions will continue into July to help you start the Rotary year off right. Find a list of all sessions here and plan to join our service-related breakout sessions:
