Event Details

Big West Rotaract Conference is an annual conference by Rotaractors for Rotaractors, organized by the Big West Rotaract MDIO. Rotaractors from all across the west coast 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 2018 Big West Rotaract Conference will be held in Portland, Oregon - home of Powell's City of Books, the Oregon Zoo, Portland Art Museum and Voodoo Doughnut. 

Please note that this is a Rotaract organized event. Just like Rotaract, this is a completely grassroots event. By participating, you will be part of history during the 8th conference of Big West Rotaract.
