The Mission of the Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) is to provide an educational opportunity for Rotarians identified as potential leaders by their Club Presidents.  Each Club President will be asked annually to nominate club members as potential club leaders (not necessarily future Club Presidents) in the years ahead.  Courses will be given for the nominees to foster Rotary  knowledge and leadership skills.  It is hoped that these courses will also motivate the participants to be enthusiastic, creative and dedicated Rotarians.

For more information about RLI and the Recommended Schedules for Courses I, II and III, please click on the "RLI General Information" link located in the box at the top left of this page.  These one-day, fast paced courses are designed to refine a Rotarian's leadership skills and increase their base knowledge of Rotary.
