The four words ‘Finish Strong … Get Ready’ describe where all of the clubs and districts in Rotary International are as we hit the midway mark of the calendar year.  Current leaders are assessing status vis a vis goals for the 2015- 2016 year. The incoming leaders are identifying their teams, setting goals, and otherwise preparing for the 2016 -2017 year.

Foundation Advocates, Area Governors and Club Foundation Chairs are actually assisting both sets of leaders.  January through June can be a demanding time for all and especially for those Rotarians wearing multiple shirts, so to speak.

District 7600 leaders have access to resources and training to navigate the challenges of leadership …

January 9 is the Presidential Retreat & PrePETS workshop. Registration is already available on the district calendar on dacdb.com. Every club president and president-elect would benefit greatly by attending.

March 3-5 is PETS (Presidents-Elect Training Seminar).  It is the annual training required by Rotary International for all incoming Presidents. Registration is available on dacdb.com.  This year there are a few select spots for Presidents-Elect Nominees.

There will be other training opportunities available in person or by webinar between before July 1 which will be announced shortly.

Next week this space will highlight the District Team Training Seminar which will be held on February 6.

Remember that no Rotarian need think he or she is alone.  We are a community of sharers and mentors.
