Dominique & Raymond described their experiences at the 2017 Big West Rotaract Institute, representing Rotaract Clubs from many universities. The keynote speakers were Richard King and Brad Howard.

The attendees divided into separate groups (called Lions, Golden Retrievers, Beavers, & Otters), writing about their individual characteristics and personalities and how they translate into leadership principles.

Among the issues discussed were membership recruitment & engagement, leadership, delegation, and shared experiences, reinforced by group exercises to build experience and confidence. They studied the process of goal-setting, such as “active members by end of semester”, then evaluating at the end of the interval for feedback. They reviewed social events, projects, (such as Boys & Girls Clubs), and Club T-shirts. (It sounds like what we do in leadership training.)
