Four selected for Young Professionals Summit

Four District 5970 Rotarians will participate in an inaugural Young Professionals Summit, which convenes Sept. 29–Oct. 1 in Cleveland, Ohio. Kesha Billings, Marion East-Cedar Rapids Rotary Club; Whitney Jackley, Cedar Valley Rotary Club; Emily Neuendorf, Waverly Rotary Club; and John Schultz, Mt. Vernon Rotary Club, were among 40 Rotarians under the age of 40 selected for the Summit.
The Summit will convene during the Legacy Zone and Rotary Institute, an event involving 28 Rotary districts in 10 U.S. states and a portion of Ontario, Canada. The Summit will seek input from young professionals about their perceptions of Rotary, identify the challenges of attracting young professionals to Rotary and develop new ideas and innovative strategies to enrich the Rotary experience for young members. Of the 60,000 Rotarians in Zones 28 and 29, less than 20 percent are under age 40.
