Leadership Institute Needs You

What is this and why should I care?  At its core, Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) is a leadership development program.  "Oh, I've had plenty of those," you say. "What's different about this one?"

RLI seeks Rotarians who appear to have the potential for future club leadership (not necessarily as club presidents) and provide them with a quality education in Rotary knowledge and leadership skills so important in voluntary organizations. If you volunteer for any organization, the skills you develop at RLI will help you. Even established leaders praise the benefits of RLI.

Read on for more about the three parts and upcoming dates.

It’s time to register for the Rotary Leadership Institute!  This program consists of three full-day parts presented over time. The programs are presented using the facilitated discussion method, rather than lecture. The fee includes breakfast, lunch and training materials. The cost will vary based on location, but is generally $75. Some clubs absorb this for its members.  

Any club member of any RLI district is invited to attend any event regardless of the location. Parts are to be taken sequentially. All sessions are facilitated by certified Discussion Leaders, who are all Rotary governors, or past presidents who have attended all three parts and been certified.
  • Part I covers Leadership Characteristics, Rotary Beyond the Club, Teambuilding, Rotary Foundation I, Membership Retention, and Service Projects.
  • Part II covers Leadership Goal Setting, The Rotary Foundation II, Communication Skills, Ethics -Vocational Service, Membership Recruitment, and Analyzing Your Rotary Club.
  • Part III include International Service, Effective Leadership Strategies (double session), Rotary Opportunities, Leadership –Public Relations, and Making a Difference.
