      Welcome, incoming Club and District Leaders!
 
      PETS, the Presidents Elect Training Seminar, is one of the few hard and fast requirements Rotary International has for Club Presidents.  All Club Presidents are required to attend Presidents Elect Training.  The five districts that encompass Mississippi, Louisiana, and the metro area of Memphis, TN have pooled resources to create Ole Man River PETS (OMR PETS) for the exclusive purpose of assisting incoming club leaders with preparing for and thus having a successful year as Club President.
