Rotary Leadership Institute Comes to District 5630

Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI)The Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) is a leadership development program offered in three full day sessions (Parts I, II and III). The courses are designed to provide Rotary knowledge and to develop leadership skills for voluntary organizations. Each of our 36 clubs in District 5630 is asked to sponsor at least two of their club members to complete the RLI this year. Clubs are encouraged to send more if their budgets allow ($25 per person, per session). The return on a club’s investment will be fantastic!

If your club cares about its future, it will want the best leadership possible. This is an outstanding opportunity for each club to improve the Rotary knowledge of its key people, who will also be exposed to new ideas of leadership. The exchange of ideas with other experienced Rotarians alone makes the courses worthwhile.

Some examples of course sessions include:

  • The Perfect Meeting
  • A Look Outside the Club
  • Membership Orientation and Activation
  • Introduction to Leadership
  • Creating Service Projects
  • Problem Solving Workshops
  • Vocational Service
  • Effective Committees
  • Membership Development
  • The Rotary Foundation
  • Analyzing a Rotary Club
  • The Object of Rotary
  • The District
  • International Service
  • Problems of Leadership
  • Creative Service

Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) What are the costs?

$25 per registrant per day. The fees cover breakfast, lunch, coffee breaks and considerable materials given to participants. Course fees also pay for meeting space, audio-visual equipment and promotional costs. The Institute strongly recommends that clubs pay the fees for their participants.

Who should be nominated to attend the Institute courses?

The Institute recommends that clubs nominate those Rotarians who appear to have the potential for club leadership, not necessarily as future presidents. They should preferably be at least 3-4 years away from a possible presidency or other key leadership post. Candidates should certainly have a strong interest in Rotary and be ready to be exposed to the larger world of Rotary. The Institute requests each club to nominate one or two Rotarians each year and to support previous nominees in completing Parts II and III.

How do I preregister?

Enrollment is limited at each site. To reserve a spot in a class on the date and at the location you prefer, please send your name and contact information to our RLI Coordinator, PDG Dave Snow, email: Class reservations must be made no later than one week before the class offering date.
