Rotaract Multidistrict Events
Many Rotaract multidistrict groups organize their own conferences, seminars, or meetings at which Rotaractors come together to discuss issues of importance beyond the district level. Subscribe to the New Generations e-newsletter for a current list of Rotaract multidistrict events.
World Rotaract Week
Every year, Rotaractors and Rotarians around the world celebrate World Rotaract Week during the week of 13 March to commemorate the founding of the first club in 1968.
World Rotaract Week is a time for celebrating the success and importance of the Rotaract program. This event is also an excellent opportunity to inform members of your community about the amazing work that Rotaract clubs do, and give them an opportunity to get involved.
Rotaract clubs and their sponsor Rotary clubs have the freedom to explore a variety of methods of participating in World Rotaract Week. Rotaractors can decide the best way for their club to celebrate the Rotaract program – completing one, two or an entire week’s worth of activities. After the club has completed its World Rotaract Week commemorative events, the sponsor Rotary club or district Rotaract chair can download a certificate of recognition for presentation to the Rotaract club.
Suggestions for these activities include:
- Conduct a joint project with a Rotary club.
- Plan a literacy day to be held annually
- Invite Rotaractors to Rotary club meetings and vice versa.
- Give a presentation about Rotaract to a Rotary club that does not sponsor a Rotaract club.
- Publicize Rotaract in local media.
- Conduct a fundraiser for Rotary's US$200 Million Challenge.
- Encourage cross-promotion between Interact, Rotary Youth Exchange, RYLA, and other community youth organizations.
- Partner with international Rotaract clubs.
- Establish monitoring programs between Rotaractors and Interactors, as well as, with Rotarians.
- Introduce potential members to Interact by inviting them to a meeting or a project.
We encourage districts to hold a ceremony to recognize participating Rotaract clubs and their sponsor Rotary clubs when presenting these customizable certificates. Download the World Rotaract Week Certificate of Recognition. (.zip U.S. letter and A4 paper sizes).

Interota, a worldwide Rotaract meeting held every three years, is organized and sponsored by Rotaractors. It provides Rotaractors with a forum for sharing ideas, concerns, and experiences with other Rotaract club members around the world. Participants are also treated to sightseeing and other cultural events throughout the weeklong event.
Although Interota is not an official Rotary International meeting, the RI Board of Directors recognizes its value and supports the event by approving its program content and by ensuring representation of RI leadership.
The next Interota meeting will take place on 26 July - 2 August 2014 in Toronto and Montréal, Canada. Learn more and follow them on Twitter @Interota2014.
