The Rotary Leadership Institute is a training program established to improve the Rotary knowledge and leadership skills of the future leaders of Rotary clubs and districts. Trainers are carefully selected from among Rotarians with outstanding leadership abilities and prepared to conduct innovative and participatory course sessions.

When and Where? This mini-RLI event will be held at the Duke Corporate Education Office on the American Tobacco Campus at 310 Blackwell Street in Durham, NC. This event only includes Step 1 of the three-step training program. The date for the event is October 10, 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM, with lunch and breaks included.

**This event requires a minimum of 12 participants to secure the date. Please register on the DacDb Events Calendar as soon as you make the decision to participate.

What are the teaching methods? The Rotary Leadership Institute believes in course sessions with as much discussion/ participation as possible. Course methods include discussion groups, role-playing, and problem solving workshops. Everyone participates during one of the Institute’s sessions.

Who are the faculty? The faculty members are carefully selected by the Rotary Leadership Institute for their teaching abilities. They are drawn from all areas of the member districts and occasionally from outside the member districts. Many are present and past district governors, successful past presidents and those with experience in special areas.

What are the costs? The cost is $95 per Rotarian. The fees cover lunch, coffee breaks, and course materials.

Should our club participate? This is an outstanding opportunity for each club to improve the Rotary knowledge of its members and future leaders, who will also be exposed to new ideas of leadership. Participation in this mini training course will allow Rotarians the opportunity to take Step 2 in Cary on January 9.

The Rotary Leadership Institute recommends that clubs nominate those Rotarians who appear to have the potential for club leadership, not necessarily as future presidents. Candidates should have a strong interest in Rotary and be ready to be exposed to the larger world of Rotary. Please contact Joyce McKinney with any questions
