District 9620 Presidents-Elect Training Seminar (PETS)

The presidents-elect training seminar (PETS) is designed to prepare incoming club presidents for their role and give District Governors-elect, District Coordinators and incoming Assistant Governors the opportunity to motivate incoming Presidents and build working relationships. It also provides a great springboard for club Presidents to form cluster relationships which have proven to be exciting avenues for service.

All Presidents-elect are required to attend PETS unless the governor-elect excuses them. Presidents-elect who are excused need to send a club representative in their place.

For 2021, PETS will be conducted online, via zoom over four one-hour sessions on Saturday 10 April (9am – 10 am & 11am – 12noon) and Sunday 11 April (9am – 10 am & 11am – 12noon). When you complete your enrolment via the link below a zoom link will be sent to you. The one link will be used over the two-day period.

It is highly recommended that PE’s will become familiar with the publication “LEAD YOUR CLUB President 2019-22 EDITION” available on My Rotary (https://my.rotary.org/en/learning-reference/learn-role/president) and have completed the Learning Place course “Club President Basics” prior to the PETS weekend.

Sessions planned for during online PETS will include:

  • Planning Your Year
  • Running Your Meetings
  • Leading Rotarians
  • Attracting New Members
  • Engaging Your Club’s Members
  • Running Your Club

Additional topics are likely to touch on some of the following:

  • Fundraising
  • Rotary Insurance
  • Rotary Programs for Young Leaders and Youth Protection
  • Service and Your Community
  • Telling Your Rotary Story
  • Using Social Media
  • Your Public Image Campaign

Our goal as a District is to encourage strong clubs with a great public image to be actively involved in Humanitarian Service.
