We are Rotarians, and we are People of Action! This year we have grouped the different committees of our club into one of four "Action Teams". But what does this mean? We are using the Action Teams to organize the many things we do into distinct groupings for better clarity. One of the reasons we are doing this is to help members focus on areas of interest. For example, if you are a person who craves hands-on, on-the-ground volunteering, the "We Transform Communities" Action Team is for you! Within this Action Team, there are tons of opportunities to serve our local and international communities.
Now it's time you join an Action Team!
Take a look below and see what catches your eye. You can always join more than one action team if you want. Check out the "Help Me Decide" section below.

Does this mean there will only be four committees this year?
No. Action Teams are not committees; they are simply groupings of committees. We have a lot of committees that do a lot of important work. It can be a bit overwhelming for new members to join one of 30+ committees. Each Action Team has at least two leads who report to the Board the work of the committees.
I was on two committees last year that are now on two different Action Teams. Can I only be in one Action Team?
No. You can be on as many committees and Action Teams as you want.
I am not on any Action Team or committee yet. Do I have to be on one?
We are People of Action, which means more than just coming to the occasional meeting. You are not expected to spend every free movement working on Rotary, but if you can give some time, we want to find the right fit for you.
My committee needs some help. What should I do?
Reach out to your Action Team lead for help. They are there to help committees in their Action Team.
I think my committee is in the wrong Action Team. What should I do?
We are People of Action, and this means occasional change. If your committee might fit better in a different Action Team, reach out to Jillian.
Are committees from different Action Teams allowed to work together?
Absolutely, yes.
