Last Thursday August 12, Katie Turnbull represented our club at the Young Professionals’ Happy Hour at The Frontier in RTP earlier this month. Rotarians filled a number of plastic bins for the District’s “Fill the Bus!” back to school campaign, and District Governor Rusine and District Governor Elect Shafi both made an appearance to show their support. Katie had the opportunity to chat with members of RTP, Raleigh Midtown, Apex Sunrise, and eClub, as well as learn more about The Frontier from one of the RTP Rotarians.
The YP or New Generations Committee engages in quarterly socials and community service. They are planning professional development workshops on topics that appeal to young professionals such as public speaking, communication, and networking. Their goal is to attract under-40 professionals to Rotary through activities they can get excited about.
