Training Rotary leaders around the world
Welcome new members with Rotary Basics
Are you unsure where to start with your new member orientation? Have members learn more about Rotary and even test their knowledge with the new Rotary Basics course in the Learning Center. They’ll read about Rotarians from around the world, learn about our values and causes, and deepen their understanding of Rotary through this interactive course.

The Rotary Basics course was designed for new Rotarians, but it’s also a great refresher for other members — and even nonmembers — who want to know more about Rotary.

To take or recommend the class, use the link above. Anyone who isn’t signed in to My Rotary will be prompted to do so before going to the Learning Center.
Prepare your club leadership team
You can help incoming club presidents and other officers prepare for their roles and develop club goals by encouraging them to attend the district training assembly. The assembly gives club officers time to reflect on their strengths and challenges, shows them how to review trends in Rotary Club Central, and helps them become strong leadership teams.

To get ideas for club leadership team training activities, see the newly revised District Training Assembly Leaders’ Guide. The guide includes sessions for club officers with information about their roles and how they’ll work with other club leaders and members.
Training tip
Go paperless at training events

Use Rotary’s online courses to help participants go paperless at your next training event. Instead of printing part or all of the manual, have members sign in to the Learning Center before, during, or after the event to find information about their roles. You can also use online forums to share ideas and ask questions as part of your learning activities.

At Rotary, our club officer manuals are now available in the Learning Center. In addition to saving money and helping the environment, this makes it easy for you to get to them quickly and use them whenever you want.

We’ve also created a series of online courses for club officers to learn more about their roles. You can find these courses and more in the Learning Center Course Catalog. Check the catalog for courses to use in your training. Have participants take a course before a training session for deeper discussions during the event.
