G: They can sponsor Rotaractors to attend; they can provide sponsorship in kind or monetary sponsorship; they can help the Organizing Committee directly with all kinds of work, PR, liaison, fund raising etc.; or they can just give a pad on the shoulder of OC members to encourage them. The list really has no limits.
R: Any other things you would like to share to Rotarians about APRRC?
G: APRRC was first set up by our District and finally is returning to D3450 for the first time in 2014. It is going to enhance international understanding and fellowship among the Rotaractors in the Asia Pacific area. It is an event that has received funding from Hong Kong SAR government, so it is and shall remain highly transparent. So we have all the reasons to make it a great success.
