New Generations Rotary comes to Reno

RENO – This isn’t your dad’s Rotary Club. And that’s a good thing for young professionals wanting to learn more about business and making the community a better place. Reno’s New Generations Rotary is the second Rotary club of its kind in the U.S., freshly chartered last November. As part of Rotary, here’s how they describe their new launch on their Website: New Generations Rotary is a theme for new Rotary clubs that break the mold of a typical morning breakfast or noon-time meeting. The Reno New Generations Rotary Club is focused on making Rotary accessible to a younger (new) generation for whom it may be more desirable to meet in the early evenings.

The Reno group is meeting at 5:30 p.m. every Monday in the wine bar at Sienna. The group is also holding a Help Haiti! fundraiser from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Feb. 28 at Great Basin Brewing Company, 846 Victorian Ave. in Sparks. There’s a $5 suggested donation, which includes a raffle ticket, and Great Basin is donating $1 from every pint participants drink. For more info, visit the New Generations Website. Also, see an article on Philip Brown and the fundraiser in the News & Review here.

  1. This is an interesting article. Is the New Generation Rotary specifically targeting young professionals? What is the average age of the New Generation Rotary?

  2. Nice to see the bettering of the community taking place in Reno!

  3. I think it’s a great idea to try to attract the younger crowd. Is the wine bar open to all ages though? Even pre-21?

  4. I am on the board of the Reno New Gen Rotary club and I can answer some of your questions.

    @Chad – New Gen Rotary is a young professional club with ages ranging from 23-40’s. With that said we do not have age restrictions and anyone is welcome to come check us out.

    @Ashley – Some of members have a drink during our weekly meeting but it is def not a requirement. I would say that pre-21 should look into a younger club like the Rotaract Club of Reno.

    Thanks for the article and interest!
