Frequently Asked Questions


We have a limited number of spaces available for training so registration is essential. The link to join will only be sent to those that have registered.

We will be using Google Meet as our platform for the presentations. A calendar invite and schedule, which will contain links to each of the individual rooms will be sent to you via email in the coming weeks.

  • All attendees will be requested to keep themselves muted, whenever they are not talking, during sessions. 
  • If the presenter requests questions, please type your question into the chat, and if they require more detail they will ask you to unmute your microphone and speak. 
  • Otherwise, please do not interrupt the presenter at any point during the session. 
  • Please note that all sessions will be recorded, including all chat messages, so please keep all comments respectful and considerate. 
  • Sessions will be starting on time, so please ensure you are present in the meeting room at the scheduled start time. If you miss the start, the presenter will not be repeating content due to the limited time available. 

There is some pre-work that you will be asked to do. This will help to make the training day as productive as possible.

Information about the pre-work will be available on this page shortly and will be sent to all registrants by email.

Thanks for your enthusiasm! You are more than welcome to attend, but please note the following:

  • As this training is intended for members of Rotaract clubs in the Districts encompassing Australia, the content of these sessions has been brought together to be relevant to members in Australia.
  • If you have questions for the presenter, please feel free to raise them in the chat. Please note that questions from Australian Rotaractors will be prioritised, where they are present. Any questions which are not answered during the session will be taken down and passed onto the presenters for their response.
  • If our all spaces for the training are filled, you may be asked to withdraw your registration.

For this event, we will be limited to 250 registrations and will send out links to attend, as per the following priorities. Within those priorities, preference shall be given to those who registered earlier.

  1. Australian Rotaractors
  2. Australian Rotary Youth Program Participants (e.g. Interact, Rotex, etc.)

Yes, all sessions will be recorded and shared with attendees at a later date so you can go back and access them at any time. These can also be shared with other club members who are unable to attend on the day. These sessions will be made available for at least one year.

For the best experience, we highly recommend that you attend on the day so that you can ask presenters your questions and get responses in real time.

Each breakout session will only be run once due to time constraints, however you will be able to access the recordings of other breakout sessions at a later date.

Attend the Rotaract FAQs session. We will have some experienced Rotaractors speaking answer questions of all kinds, and providing information on many different Rotaract and Rotary opportunities. If you have a question for the panel, please email it through.
