Over the weekend of February 8-10, the Rotaract Australia Conference was held in Adelaide. Samantha Fewster, the Rotaract representative for Rotaract WA attended the conference and represented the West Australian clubs.
Rotaractors, Rotarians and guests heard from inspiring speakers about perseverance, stepping up and human durability. There were multiple breakout sessions run by fellow Rotaract members, targeted at personal and professional development. Everyone let their hair down on Saturday night at the Rotaract Australia Awards, held at the Adelaide Zoo. Rotaract in WA was well represented with at least one club nominated for every award category, with the period in which the awards were to cover being July 2017-December 2018. Congratulations to the Rotaract Club of Perth for being a finalist in almost every category and the Rotaract Club of Mount Lawley for being a finalist for the Most Outstanding Project award. An even bigger congratulations to the following clubs and our WA Rotaract Representative, Samantha, for showcasing to Australia some of the amazing, impactful work our clubs are doing in WA regardless of membership size, age or experience. We can all be the inspiration and make a difference if we work together.
