About the Event
Join FFI on Zoom on Thursday, May 21, 2020, for our first-ever Virtual Rotary Open House! For the last month, our alumni from all over the globe have been meeting every day on Zoom for self-led workshops on a variety of topics from window gardens, origami, and project management.
FFI had planned on hosting a Rotary Open House at our campus in Durham, NH this May. In adapting to the COVID situation, we are instead taking this as an opportunity to host a Virtual Open House instead! Whether you are interested in learning about FFI for the first time and want to know more details about our organization or want to start planning joint programs with your club and/or interact members, there will be a session for you! There will also be the opportunity to learn about our global campuses in the US, Northern Ireland, and Belize and how you and/or your club could get engaged.
