TAKE YOUR ROTARY LEADERSHIP SKILLS TO THE NEXT LEVEL WITH RLI
The Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) is a multi-district, grassroots leadership development program of member districts organized into regional divisions in various parts of the world.
 
Note:  Any Rotaractor or Rotarian from ANY club or Rotary district can register and attend our District 5790 RLI training. 
 
RLI is a recommended program of Rotary International.
 
The Rotary Leadership Institute is not an official training program of Rotary International.
 

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF RLI?

RLI seeks to provide quality education in Rotary knowledge and leadership skills to Rotaractors and Rotarians interested in developing their Rotary participation and to those identified by Rotaract and Rotary clubs as having a potential in club leadership. These educational opportunities will teach skills that will benefit the members in their lives and in their volunteer service.
 
RLI is a general education program, while most Rotary International training programs are "job-specific"; that is Rotary International trains Rotarians for specific positions. RLI is not a President-Elect Training Seminar (P.E.T.S.) or any other district training program, but graduates of RLI bring a greatly enhanced background in Rotary when they later attend job-specific programs.
 

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF LONE STAR DIVISION RLI?

Our Rotary District 5790 is one of eight districts representing Rotary clubs in Texas that are the current active districts in the Lone Star Division RLIa division of RLI International
 
The Lone Star Division RLI holds (RLI) 4-part seminars and webinars which are a series of fast-paced, interactive, online webinars or in-person seminars to refine a Rotaractor or Rotarian's leadership skills and increase their base of knowledge in Rotary.  These 4-part webinars are held periodically throughout the year.
 

WHAT'S THE COST, WHO SHOULD ATTEND, AND WHERE ARE THE CLASSES? 

The Registration fee for each of the three Parts (Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3) is $50 for each Part.  All class materials will be emailed to you. 
 
RLI a good investment in your personal and professional leadership development, Rotary or elsewhere. We recommend RLI for current presidents, President-Elects, President Nominees, club directors, committee chairs, active and new Rotarians & Rotaractors.
 
The sessions are fun, topical, interactive, and geared toward Rotarians and Rotaractors that are busy business and professional persons who want to be more effective leaders in their vocation, in their club, and possibly becoming district leaders in the future.
 
District 5790 Rotarians interested in becoming future club leaders (not necessarily as club presidents) interested in increasing their Rotary knowledge and leadership skills are welcomed to attend.   The leadership skills you learn will help you as a Rotarian, but will apply to your leadership efforts professionally as well.
