(2023-2024 EDITION)

Engaging Rotarians & Strengthening Rotary Clubs Through Quality Leadership Education

The Rotary Leadership Institute is not an official training program of Rotary International.
The Rotary Leadership Institute is now being offered in District 5840. It is a development program using facilitation in small groups to engage Rotarians and strengthen clubs through quality leadership education.
RLI’s Part 1 is a great start for new Rotarians, as well as a good summary for experienced ones. It is suggested all members who are “new” to Rotary attend at least Part 1.
Parts 2 and 3 build on the foundation – completing all three parts is a great idea for incoming club presidents and board members. It builds action and sustainability in your local club!
RLI is held from 9:00-4:00pm (usually Saturdays) – Resource Materials with coffee/lunch/dessert are included – each Part is to be taken in order, and only one part per Saturday is allowed. The schedule and sign-up is online at the District 5840 website at http://rotary5840.org/  (scroll down left side under District Events or check the District Calendar).

Clubs are encouraged to pay for their members’ development (lunch is included) and any Rotarian is welcomed.
