About Our Summit
Younger Rotarians, from ages 20 to 40 are already leaders in their communities. These leaders come together to exchange ideas and take action. They energize their clubs, and are catalysts for change. The Young Professionals Summit will give approximately 1 to 3 of these leaders, per club in District 6540, a unique opportunity to share their thoughts, reflect on their stories, and exchange ideas. Further, as a part of this Summit, these young leaders will work with the leadership in their Rotary district to create a plan of how to make current and new Rotary clubs more relevant to the needs, desires and purposes of younger professionals.
Through a facilitated discussion called Appreciated Inquiry, all participants will be a part of a process to discover what’s working now, identify solutions to challenges, and amplify the positive experiences so that more young professionals can discover Rotary, and Rotary can continue to evolve and grow.
The Summit will take place at the YMCA Camp Tecumseh in Brookston, Indiana, and the process will be facilitated by Rotary Leaders from District 6540 and other districts from across the country. Rotary leaders are encouraged to nominate young leaders to apply for one of the limited seats at this Summit hosted by Rotary District 6540.
This opportunity is made possible as the result of a very generous Renew Rotary grant provided through Rotary Young Professionals Campaign.
