A Busy Fall Looms. Faculty Sign Ups are Needed!

Our Faculty rolls and our faculty sign up system have been updated to include adding the 17 new faculty from our July 2014 faculty Training and purging inactive faculty who have not met re-certification requirements for the 2 year cycle. 

We are planning some spot faculty training dates for areas of need during the Fall. These will be announced separately as they are confirmed and will appear on the schedule and registration system as soon as the dates are available. 

This Fall, there are a ton of events and our faculty and staff will be stressed "to the max". We have 119 available and certified faculty members covering a minimum 18 venues, 46 course levels and 276 courses this Fall. WOW! We thank our Faculty for their tremendous dedication and love of Rotary!

Hello! Multi-Platinum Superstar to Headline RLI Summer Meeting

Touring again, just for RLI... Lionel Richie
Not to be outdone by the Sheryl Crow Concert at the DPAC last year, the RLI Summer Meeting will feature... in his first North American tour in over a decade, one of the best-selling recording artists of all time, multiple Grammy award winning artist Lionel Ritchie, who will be performing at the Walnut Creek Amphitheatre in Raleigh on Saturday night, July 19, 2014. His music appeals across generations and genres. From his days fronting The Commodores to his amazing solo career beginning in the 1980s, his music is upbeat, singable, and smooth, the height of contemporary R&B and soft rock.  

RLI is encouraging the individual purchase of “lawn tickets” for the event, and will sit together as a group for the concert. Lawn tickets cost about $35 each (about $50 inclusive of shipping & delivery), and can be purchased from Tickets Official at 855-315-0432. Ticket prices, availability & purchase at the Ticket’s Official website for this concert. Unlike the concert last year, RLI will not be offering any tickets for sale.
