Organized and led by Interactors,
Backed by Rotarians and Rotaractors

We believe in empowering our next generation of leaders to share ideas and to inspire each other, and we’ve got their back. The Interact International Convention’s planning committee consists of Rotarians and Rotaractors who will be on-site from the start of this one-day convention experience to the end of the day, ready to support the Interactors and to render any needed assistance. We take safety seriously, and we want all of our advisors, our chaperones, and our parents/guardians to feel comfortable leaving their loved ones in our car during the one-day Interact International Convention hours.
