Duncan SC Participant Comments

The Duncan SC RLI was held on March 26, 2011. There were 11 Graduates from the 3 day course, and a strong contingent of Part II Students.

District 7750 Chair Buddy Smith Shares with us some comments from the participants.
"Enjoyed it very much and learned many things to help my club" -- "It would be nice to get a class roster & contact info. Need to somehow improve and relate ‘What RLI is’ and stress how interactive RLI is as opposed to the idea of PETS" -- "I am a believer that RLI is the best training available in Rotary. I think every Rotarian should make it a priority to attend all three sessions and graduate" -- "Great day – would like more on Marketing Rotary – Social media- What’s working" -- "Good information for Pres-Elect. Would like to have a participant sheet" -- "I have come away from RLI with more than any district event that I have ever attended" -- "A great day!" -- "I learned so much and feel empowered to go back and make my club better".

Thank You from a Rotarian!

This is why we do what we do.

Dear RLI,

Thank you for making this happen. It was an outstanding event and I will recommend to all Rotary Members, not just incoming Presidents.

Now the task is, how to incorporate all I learned!

District 7730 Conference First to Adopt RLI Legislation

The business session of the 2011 District 7730 Conference adopted unanimously a proposed enactment to the 2013 RI Council on Legislation regarding The Rotary Leadership Institute. This marks the first official approval of the resolution by a District in the Rotary world.  

The proposal asks the RI legislative body to request that the RI Board of Directors to consider designating RLI as an "Official Affiliate" of RI, or as a "Structured Program of Rotary", operated independently by clubs and districts individually, or as multi-district service activities as provided for [by Rotary rules], and at no cost to Rotary.    

The proposal was approved by RLI International, and similar endorsements from districts around the world are being sought before the 2013 Council. Click here for the text of the proposed enactment.
