The Rotaract Club of Payap University(RCPYU) members are currently nearing the end of their semester classes.  In order to move the Club's activities forward, a membership meeting was called and held on August 27, 2019, where several items were reviewed.  CMIRC President Colin Jarvis and Liaison Rotarian William Churchill were invited.  Regrets were noted for President Colin and William reviewed several matters with the Club, including the following:
  • A brief review of the RCPYU/CMIRC relationship with a focus on "What is Rotaract?"
  • A review of current CMIRC service projects and sponsored Interact Clubs and how the RCPYU could participate.
  • New or proposed CMIRC service projects, including the Children's Sight Project; World Polio Day; and Toastmasters.
In addition to the above service projects with their sponsoring Club, the RCPYU also will pursue the following service opportunities:
  • The Millennial Festival at PYU (members will volunteer and also plan to have a booth to solicit Club memberships)
  • A collaboration with the World Trade Organization
  • English language collaboration with BEAM
  • A project for World Rotaract Week
  • A social interaction with the visiting Rotaract Club RACHKIE (Rotaract Club of Hong Kong Island East)
  • RYLA meeting  (Bow and Dayton, two bilingual members have expressed an interest in participating)
The membership and Liaison also discussed fundraising, Club banking, obtaining and sustaining a District 3360 presence, the 51st Multi-District Rotaract Convention, identifying two annual sustainable service projects and mentoring by CMIRC members.
William extended appreciation to the Club for its support and participation in the HKUST (Hong Kong University of Science & Technology) Rotaract Club visit.
Given the above, the Club is truly motivated by Rotary and Rotaract values and commitments.
