Bill Orndorff Scholarship Established

A good Rotarian, friend and fellow RLI Faculty Member, Bill Orndorff of the Salem VA Rotary Club passed away suddenly on July 28, 2012. He and his wife Earlene are both involved in the Rotary Leadership Institute, both being exemplary Rotarians.

By action of the Zone 33 Rotary Leadership Institute Board of Directors on August 21, 2012, an RLI scholarship in the memory of RLI Faculty Member Bill Orndorff has been established for the 2012-13 Rotary Year.

The Scholarship will allow a District 7570 Rotarian of the Governor's choice to attend any one RLI session in Zone 33 RLI. The recipient should be a prospective or current Rotary club leader who you think would benefit from connecting with his peers and learning more about the opportunities for service available in Rotary.

Lower RLI Course Fees Announced

The RLI Board approved a course registration fee change for the 2012-13 RLI year at their July 29, 2012 meeting. Beginning with the September 8, 2012 Morgantown WV RLI going forward, the following course fees will apply:

Part I -$95.00

Part II - $85.00

Part III - $75.00

The online registration has been amended to reflect this fee reduction. The Board lowered the rates in light of the solvent financial position of RLI and to encourage Rotarians to complete all three RLI courses.
