The primary mission of Big West Rotaract, or “BWR” for short, is to provide leadership training and education to Rotaractors on the west coast of the United States through leadership training weekends, conferences, information exchange, and online resources. Although BWR is one of the newest chartered Rotaract MDIOs in Rotary International, it is quickly becoming one of the most active MDIOs in the world.
Currently, Big West Rotaract’s flagship annual events are the Big West Rotaract Institute and the Big West Rotaract Conference. The BWR Institute is where the west coast Rotaract President Elect Training Session (PETS), Rotaract Governor Elect Training Session (GETS), and Rotaract Board Elect Training Session (BETS) take place. This happens annually on the third weekend of July in Northern California. The BWR Conference is held every Fall. BWR Conferences serve as an annual gathering point for Rotaractors on the west coast to receive leadership training and foster growing connections.

Rotaract 5030 is thrilled to have the networking and collaboration opportunities available through Big West Rotaract and encourages clubs to send their members to Big West events. We also have a Director of Big West local to the Seattle area, please reach out to Devon, email@example.com with any questions about Rotaract on a larger scale, about Big West events/attendance, or ideas for the future!
