Guest Speaker 
Reid Eyre gave a very interesting presentation about Rotoract and the Passport Club and the New Generation for Rotary. It is a leadership group for 18-30 years olds. There are Rotoract Clubs in 184 Countries, with 250,792 members and 10,904 Clubs. RI is putting a lot of energy into supporting Rotoract. Rotary Clubs can provide resources, opportunity and mentorship to Rotoract Clubs. Look for a small group of leaders aged 18-30 and support their interest. Watch them grow! 4% of Rotoractors join Rotary. How can we change Rotary to attract keeping these young leaders? Examine our club's culture and curb appeal! What traditions do we honour? What can we change? Passport Clubs meet once per month by ZOOM, online. They meet socially in small pockets. They are expected to do 40 hours of service. Passport Clubs are growing. They "make Rotary fit life and remove barriers from leaving Rotary".
