PETS is our Presidents Elect Training Seminar, held in conjunction with 6 neighboring Districts, in Whippany, New Jersey. The main concept is to share knowledge and ideas with hundreds of our fellow Rotarians.
Each and every Rotary Club is required to be in attendance, or to send a representative to PETS.
This year's curriculum is new, the facilitators are new, the best of all, the guest speakers are new, creative, innovative, current, and excited to be bringing a very different Rotary to the table.
We are privileged to have Rotary International President Elect Ian Risely from Australia sharing this years theme "MAKING A DIFFERENCE". We have Rotary International Director Dean Rohrs from Canada, surely brining the room to the edge of their seats. We have PDG Drew Kessler from Stony Point, NY, sharing his method of empowerment and business in todays Rotary, Mitty Chang from California, who at 29, owns and operates his own company, and has the largest Rotoract Club in the US. We have David Foreward, who wrote the book on the Rotary Foundation, and PDG John Capps, who will thoroughly entertain you with his whimsical way of bringing Rotary into every home and heart. Past Rotary International President Rick King will share his view on bringing the older generation up to speed with the millennial. They are as eager as we are to show you why we are now "People of Action". Rotary International is releasing a brand new publicity campaign geared at attracting new members, new ideas, and new attitudes for Rotarians, due out in June, for our new year.

At the District Conference, we all heard that there are countless communities where there is quite literally, not a goat left standing.
We have two projects currently available to our district, which need immediate funding:
