My name is Jessica Cobb, and I am the Professional Development Chair for the Rotaract Club of Baldwin Wallace University/Berea. Our club is hosting a Professional Development networking event during our meeting on February 21 at 9:00 PM. This event will be hosted on Zoom and will be completely virtual.

Our club members come from a wide variety of majors, so we are looking for a diverse group of Rotarians to discuss their career paths and involvement with Rotary. We hope this will give our Rotaractors a chance to learn more about their career interests, and also provide an excellent networking opportunity for our members to connect with the Rotarians in District 6630. 

The first 15 minutes of the meeting will be our club meeting- you are more than welcome to come for this portion! Around 9:15, we would like the Rotarians to give a short introduction of themselves, including name, career path/experience, involvement in Rotary and what club they are a member. Following the introductions, Rotarians will be put into separate breakout rooms where the Rotaractors can join a breakout room that best suits their interests. Ideally, we would like the Rotarians to have a short presentation prepared to share information about their career and answer any questions Rotaractors may have. These breakout rooms will last about 20-25 minutes.

Key points to address in breakout rooms include: 

· How/why you chose this career path

· Advice you would give to someone pursuing this career

· Any personal experience that you would like to add

· How your career has shaped your life

· Any overlaps between your career and Rotary

· How Rotary impacts your personal and/or professional life

On behalf of all members of the Baldwin Wallace University Rotaract Club, we would love to have you join us for this event. If you are available to speak at this event, please RSVP to Jessica by Monday, February 13th by emailing Additionally, please do not hesitate to reach out via email with any questions.

Thank you so much for your time and your continued support of the Baldwin Wallace University Rotaract Club.
