Interact chairs from 15 RI districts came together to share notes and showcase their projects at a one-day symposium organised by the district Interact chair of RID 3132 Dr Bindu Shirsath and her team. RIDE Dr Mahesh Kotbagi gave a talk on RI’s diversity, equity and inclusiveness (DEI) principles and appreciated the efforts of district Interact chairs (DICs) in making this programme a success.
PDG Ravi Vadlamani spoke on innovative ways to strengthen Interact clubs and urged DICs to continue their efforts in organising similar programmes. DGs Harish Motwani, RID 3132; Chinappa Reddy, RID 3160; and Dr Bindu spoke on the occasion. DIC Virendra Parrikar, RID 3030, gave a presentation on various projects of Interactors.
The convener Bindu received a letter of congratulations from RI President Holger Knaack for hosting the “the first ever symposium for Interactors at the national-level.” Praising the DICs, he said, “the future of Rotary depends on leaders like you. We want you to feel empowered to imagine new opportunities for Rotary. This is the only way we will adapt in these rapidly changing times — through meaningful collaboration with young, energetic people.”
Interactor Stuti Salvi of Interact Club of Priyadarshini Buds rendered a special song to heal the world from the pandemic situation.
