Big West Rotaract is a non-profit organization that provides leadership training and education to young professionals from ages 18 through 30 on the Western Region of North America.
Established March 13, 2015, Big West Rotaract was founded as a result of over 5 years of collaboration projects and conferences by Rotaractors across the Western Region of North America. Big West Rotaract is an incorporated non-profit 501(c)4 organization, and is a registered Multi District Information Organization (MDIO) with Rotary International.
Rotaract, an official program of Rotary International, brings together young leaders ages 18-30 in universities and communities worldwide to organize service activities, develop leadership and professional skills, and have fun. Local Rotary clubs sponsor them, but Rotaract members manage and fund their clubs independently. Rotaract members work closely with their local Rotary club(s), and may join Rotary after their Rotaract membership ends. Interested in joining Rotaract but need to find a club near you? Please contact us and we will help you find one!
INSTITUTE 2019 SAN JOSE, CA
On July 19th – 21st, 2018, Big West Rotaract will be hosting its fifth annual training weekend for Rotaract leaders to learn about leadership, conflict resolution, event planning, sales, marketing, delegation, recruitment, retention, and much more!
Known as the Big West Rotaract Institute, the BWR Institute has received praise from leaders of all levels. While the curriculum is intensive and packs over two decades of Rotaract leadership knowledge into less than 3 days of training, the BWR Institute also serves as an unique opportunity for Rotaract leaders on the Western Region of North America to meet one another in-person.
The networking and fellowship that comes with attending a BWR Institute is within itself priceless and often a game changer for many of our leaders.
Big West Rotaract Conference is an annual conference by Rotaractors for Rotaractors, organized by Big West Rotaract MDIO. Rotaractors from all across the Western Region of North America, as well as Rotaract and Rotarian guests from around the world, come together for fellowship and to learn through leadership workshops and inspirational sessions.
We offer various workshops led by experienced Rotaractors, Rotarians, and professionals in the community.
The location of the conference varies every year to highlight areas and clubs within the Big West Rotaract territory. The 2019 Big West Rotaract Conference will be held in Vancouver, BC, Canada.

“If we train our youth properly, we need not have any fear as to the future of the world.”
