One more chance to attend the Virtual Rotary Leadership Institute in the 20-21 Rotary year!
Click anywhere on the District calendar to register for each of the three parts of Rotary Leadership Institute...we all thought that these on-line meetings might have gone away by now, but in some form they will be with us for a while longer yet.  In 2020, we had nearly 50 Rotarians from across the district graduate from RLI...our goal this year was to entice 2 members from each club to participate and graduate, so grab a friend and spend some evenings with us as Rotarians from across the district engage in conversation about Rotary, the Rotary Foundation, increasing the impact of our clubs, and expanding our knowledge about how to make the best use of our membership in Rotary.
In response to some Rotarians who would like a slightly later start time to change gears from a work day to a Rotary evening, and to try something different, our schedule will be as follows:
PART ONE 7-8:30pm Jan 25-27
Mon Jan 25: My Leadership in Rotary; My Rotary World
Tues Jan 26 : Ethics and Vocational Service; The Rotary Foundation Part 1
Wed Jan 27: Engaging Members; Creating Service Projects
PART TWO 7-8:30pm Feb 22-24
Mon Feb 22: Rotary Opportunities; Effective Leadership Strategies
Tues Feb 23: Attracting Members; Club Communication
Wed Feb 24: Team Building; The Rotary Foundation Part 2
PART THREE 7-8:30pm Mar 22-24
Mon Mar 22: Strategic Planning; The Rotary Foundation Part 3
Tues Mar 23: Public Image & Public Relations; Building a Stronger Club
Wed Mar 24: Making a Difference
Each part of the course costs $25; participants are expected to attend all three sessions of each part.  Anyone who began the RLI curriculum at any point when it was offered in person or earlier in the virtual process is welcome and encouraged to join for the part/s you are missing and join the growing ranks of RLI graduates.  Reach out to any member of the Gulfport Orange Grove Club (they are all graduates!) for an honest assessment of the value of the curriculum.  You can also reach out directly to DG Elizabeth at for a list of graduates in your area or if you'd like more information.
