Expanding our membership and getting Rotaract’s name out is one of the most critical steps to our organization going forward, and there is an event coming May 8 that is a great opportunity to do just that. I attend several network functions a month and can tell you that one of the best is Network After Work. Guys, this function is always high-octane networking with 150+ professionals in an energy filled room who are THERE to meet people. Not everyone in the room is under 30 mind you, but enough are to grow us. I went last time not representing my business, but representing Rotaract (that’s what was on my name tag sticker), and this is also how I met Paul Sanders and Paul Fricano who may join if they haven’t already.
I’m looking for 2 others who want to be there with me that night representing Rotaract KC because there are so many people I can’t get to know everyone. It takes place on a Wednsday at McFaddens at 1340 Grand Blvd, KCMO. It does cost $10 if you pay now, or $15 at the door – but you also get a drink, and paid events in my experience attract way higher quality people who are serious.
If you’re interested, of course contact Derrick or myself. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
