Inception 2022

Kickstarting the RI year of 2022-23, Rotaractors of RACUOCFMF were able to welcome newbies in a glamorous and successful way with INCEPTION. 300+ participants were excited and enthralled to be a part of the Rotaract movement, yet, the fear of the unknown was growing within them. To eradicate that fear within them and to familiarise them with the concepts, the people, the phases and the fun aspect of Rotaract, we conducted INCEPTION which was tremendously successful in familiarising them and helping them step into the world of Rotaract. INCEPTION 2022 kicked off with 300+ individuals joining our online platform on the 16th of July and with a wonderful opening to the event carried out by non other than our President Rtr. Gajaba Senarathne along with Rtr. Samindi Weerakoon, the ever-so-loving Secretary of the club. With that wonderful opening, INCEPTION continued with the executive committee introductions, where the newbies got to see and understand how the Ex-co works and also the people in it.

Next up was something really exciting, which were the avenue introductions. The avenue introductions were conducted by the respective avenue directors and they made sure it was super fun, exciting and interesting for the newbies so that they are quite thrilled and comfortable to work in these avenues, to come up with projects and be an asset to the club in the future. 

The avenue introductions began with Club Service Directors Rtr. Thinali and Rtr. Chanuka giving a brief introduction about what Club Service is. Consequently, they moved into a fun game of “Most Likely To Be”, which helped the participants comprehend that if they wanted to know more about their club and club members, they would have to engage in Club Service projects that would help build camaraderie and engagement within the club. The segment ended with a beautiful performance by Rtr. Binura Thalavinna showcasing  the unknown talent within the incoming batch.

Following up, we had Community Service hosted by avenue directors Rtr. Janul and Rtr. Vishvi with insights from the previous directors, giving the participants an in-depth understanding of how important Community Service is. Projects done under the avenue in previous years were highlighted for the newbies to further understand the avenue.

Moving on to Professional Development, avenue directors Rtr. Theeksha and Rtr. Melisha demonstrated an interesting presentation that involved a barrel of laughs and a lot of sentiment where the newbies were exposed to how important Professional Development is for their personal life and how much of a service this renders as an avenue of the club for their personal advancement. A job well done by Rtr. Theeksha and Rtr. Melisha incorporating all three languages into their presentation gave the newbies a very positive outlook on what Rotaract is.

International Service started off with a fun game of “Never have I ever” hosted by the respective avenue directors Rtr. Piravena and Rtr. Hasna. With all the fun and engagement, they moved onto explain how important International Service is and how connecting communities and understanding foreign cultures is an essential part of today’s world.

To keep the ball rolling, next up were the Editors Rtr. Zarah and Rtr. Hasara who had cropped out beautiful segments of the Club blog with a miniature game curated where participants had to guess which Avenue the illustrated blog excerpt  belongs to. It kicked up everyone’s heels.

Another very important avenue of the club, Membership Development, was introduced and explained by the avenue directors Rtr. Subhavi and Rtr. Senuri who had a very positive outlook on how vital it is for us to maintain and grow the members of the club to make sure all of us are engaged and taking part in Rotaract as one family.

Next up was Public Relations Avenue, which was again a sensational segment done by avenue directors Rtr. Leon and Rtr. Mindya. They hosted an amusing and interactive Q&A session where the audience had to answer some fun and entertainment related questions which broke the ice between the participants and the committee, which subsequently allowed everyone to engage in this program as one Rotaract family. Capping the Public Relations segment, Rtr. Leon and Rtr. Mindya made sure their TikTok and Instagram follower base boosted up by asking all participants to follow them, thus, winning themselves a massive number of new followers.

Rtr. Ali and Rtr. Tharindu introduced their avenue “Environmental service” with a carefully curated presentation that showed off how vital and exciting the avenue is. The segment highlighted the projects undertaken by the club in the previous years and the opportunities that were available in the avenue. 

Introducing the Finance avenue, Rtr. Adheesha and Rtr. Raveesha hosted a presentation. This encapsulated what happened and what to expect in the finance avenue. 

Following Finance was Rtr. Althaaf along with Rtr. DIleesha, the club’s beloved co- directors on Sports and recreational activities. A presentation was done introducing the avenue and highlighting key events of the Rotaract calendar such as RCL which falls under this avenue.

With a fun and exciting segment, Rtr. Thiwanka and Rtr. Alysha were able to make Digital communications seem like the dream avenue to work in. An exciting video showcasing the importance of design and digital communications  in any project was tactfully slipped into the heads of our newbies.

That marked the end of the avenue introductions. After some extremely positive feedback from the audience, the day ended leaving 300+ potential Rotaractors excited and inquisitive about what comes next.
