Club Officer Training Seminar (COTS) was held by Zone 8, Interact District 3292- Nepal & Bhutan on 19th and 20th August, focusing on club officers’ consistent, professional development, supporting the brand, and enhancing member experience, and helping them explore themselves to grow as a leader, we assembled the interactors of Interact Club of Shree Rudrayani Sec. School on 19th August 2022 inside Shree Rudrayani Secondary School premises. Likewise, we arranged another COTS in Little Angels’ College of Higher Education for Interact Club of West Wing Secondary School, Interact Club of YALA, Interact Club of St. Xavier’s School Jawalakhel, and Interact Club of Tri-Ratna Kathmandu Midtown on 20th August 2022.
The 19th August Seminar had 10-15 participants, and the 20th August Seminar had 30 participants, giving us the opportunity to present a basic introduction to the club structure, the roles and responsibilities of club officers along with the details about Rotary, Rotaract, Interact and Interact District. Overall, the training seminar was facilitated by Itr. Safal Shrestha, the Zonal Interact Representative, Zone 8, and Itr. Sheetal Thakur, Zonal Planner. Along with the training seminars, various ice-breaking activities were also observed to make the sessions more fun and interactive. The interactive sessions lasted approximately two hours, but during that time, the participants gained knowledge about Rotary, Rotaract, Interact and the numerous skills necessary for a club to function effectively.
In summary, we were able to successfully organize COTS for Zone 8’s active clubs and provide them with all of the necessary information and skills. As a result of this training seminar, the participants felt more connected to themselves, with each other as well as to the stakeholders around them, such as Rotary Rotaract, and Interact District.
