This Friday we will hear from David Buchanan, current president of the Rotaract Club of Atlanta, which was chartered by Rotary International in 2012 with the Rotary Club of Dunwoody as its sponsor.
From the club's Facebook page profile of David, we learn he is a pathological optimist who is incredibly interested in technology and its impact on people. He graduated from the University of South Florida with a Bachelors in Computer Science. He moved to Atlanta in 2017 to be with family and to work at Georgia Tech.
Why did David join Rotaract? He first joined the Rotaract Club of USF in his freshman year of college. He wanted to be a part of a well known global organization that attracted individuals interested in making the community they live in better. In addition to this, it was a fantastic way to network with Rotarians and the Local Tampa Rotaract chapter.
"My favorite part of Rotary is networking with all the professionals in my area. It is commonly known that you should surround yourself with people who are successful and optimistic; Rotaract is a great place to find those people! Anyone who follows The Four-Way Test is a person worth getting to know!"
The Rotaract Club of Atlanta has been one of our key partners in many of our projects, including the Governor's Ball, the GRSP Leadership Conference (where they are responsible for the Shark Tank competition) and in years past, RunDunwoody. Several club members - including David - just came back from the Rotary International Convention in Hamburg, Germany.
Join us to hear more from David about what the club has in store for the future!
