Fun Times with Awesome New Friends
To celebrate Rotaract Australia's 10th birthday we are excited to announce the launch of a podcast called "Chats by Rotaract Australia". The podcast aims to fill in the gap left by dozens of cancelled in-person networking opportunities caused by COVID-19 and connect Rotaractors, Rotarians and clubs doing exciting things. Tune in now to hear from our hosts Laura and Holly.

How did Rotaract Australia Start?
A group of District Rotaract Representatives from around Australian (and the Pacific Islands) decided to get together to unite, empower and grow Rotaract in our region. Our main goals are:
- Connecting people that share our values with Rotaract Clubs across the Australia and Pacific Island Region
- Supporting clubs with resources for club administration, events and projects
- Assisting Districts with resources they can use in Club Training, advice on operations and more
- Providing National Training for our incoming District Rotaract Representatives (DRRs) every year
- Uniting and fostering collaboration between members, clubs and districts by bringing people together at events like our Australian Rotaract Conference
Rotaract Australia DRR Training
We are here as a group of united districts, to connect, to empower and to support each other. We have a council, made up of 16 DRRs that represent the members and clubs of their respective district(s). The power of Rotaract Australia sits within the Council’s hands; each year the Council elects the Rotaract Australia Executive team. Led by a Chairperson, the executive team, and a Non-Executive team, manages Rotaract Australia’s operations, internal communications, public relations and more, who then report to the Council, but have no voting rights.
We are officially recognised by Rotary International as a Multi-District Information Organisation (MDIO).
