|Go Beckley RLI! Part I Participants Enjoy the Experience.|
According to Gov. Harry Faulk, "RLI, The Rotary Leadership Institute, provides outstanding training for Rotarians to become more knowledgeable about Rotary. Rotarians who attend RLI become Club Leaders and make for stronger Clubs. Stronger clubs make a stronger District."
Click here for the Governor's Update, which includes great coverage of our RLI participants in all three parts of the Institute. Congratulations to the District 7550 RLI Committee who did the logistics and publicity for this fantastic event. Also, special merit goes to the Lewisburg WV Rotary Club, who had 9 members attend.

|The Mary E Rittling Conference Center at Davidson|
Community College, site of the Thomasville NC RLI
Davidson County Community College continues to be the nearly ideal location. Aside from some bridge construction on nearby highways, it is easily accessed, and the Mary Rittling Conference Center is excellent in terms of both facilities and staff.
Our final District 7690 RLI will be at Surry County Community College in Dobson, near Mt. Airy on Saturday, May 31. In addition to District 7690 participation, we are hoping we can host participants from western North Carolina and Southwest Virginia. Facilities there are new and equally attractive. PDG Bob Newton, District 7690 RLI Chair
