In August, the Rotary Club of Milwaukee, Rotaract Club of Milwaukee, Amigos de Milwaukee Afterhours and the Rotary Club of Mequon-Milwaukee Afterhours, collaborated to provide a month-long series of luncheons and events tackling the following issues - water, hypersegregation, hunger and human trafficking. Connecting with Rotary: Young Professionals Series was our way to engage young professionals to help them learn about Rotary and its work here and around the globe.
We’re happy to report that it was a huge success! Over 125 young professionals registered to attend RCM’s Tuesday luncheons, over 100 attended our hypersegregation discussion, 15 people attended our bus tour of Milwaukee with Adam Car, over 25 people helped us pack 20,000 pounds of food at Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin and over 60 people joined us for a discussion on human trafficking in Milwaukee.
A special thank you to all our Young Professionals Committee members who organized this series. Thank you to 88Nine Milwaukee, our partner, who promoted our events on the radio and on their website.
