Chris Arce, an executive assistant for Copresco, has been selected as a
team member for a Rotary District 6440 Group Study Exchange (GSE) to Brazil in
The Rotary Foundation program is a unique cultural and vocational exchange opportunity for business people and professionals between the ages of 25 and 40 who are in the early stages of their careers. The program provides travel grants for five-member teams to exchange visits in paired areas of different countries.
The group includes team leader Donna Gulley, Northbrook; Arce of Chicago; Cindy Huang, Skokie; Ronnie Idowu, Hoffman Estates; and Scott Nadeau, Waukegan.
The team will be in the São Paulo area of Brazil for four weeks. They will experience Brazil's culture and institutions, observe how their vocations are practiced abroad, develop personal and professional relationships, and exchange ideas. Meanwhile, a GSE team from Brazil will be sharing the same experiences in Chicago's northern and western suburban area.
Arce studied business administration at The College of Office Technology in Chicago. She is a May 2009 graduate of the massage therapy program at UEI College in San Diego, California, and has been active in the community service arena.
"Copresco is a strong supporter of the Group Study Exchange program," says Steve Johnson, president and CEO, and a Wheaton Rotarian. "Chris and her team have an exceptional opportunity to be part of an international professional development program that fosters international understanding and friendship. This training will help them develop the skills necessary to meet the needs of an ever-expanding global workplace."
