Welcome to Rotary Leadership Institute

Why Do we need RLI?

Rotary Leadership Institute provides educational opportunities for potential leaders to improve their Rotary knowledge and be exposed to new ideas of leadership. Clubs that care about their future will want the best leaders and members possible.

Who Should Participate?

The Institute recommends that clubs nominate Rotarians who have potential for leadership in their club, not just those slated as future presidents. A strong interest in Rotary and be ready to be exposed to the large world of Rotary are additional traits to look for.

Join Leaders!

It is important that Rotary Club leaders have every opportunity for education because the success or failure of our clubs depends largely on the quality of their leaders. And the exchange of ideas with other Rotarians alone makes the courses worthwhile.

Rotary Leadership Institute is an interactive, facilitated sessions on topics designed to provide Rotary knowledge and develop leadership skills for volunteer organizations. RLI does not provide position specific training. Instead it is an opportunity to really “discover Rotary” using different tracks of knowledge. Here’s what you will cover:

  • Part I centers on the basics of being a Rotarian.
  • Part II builds on the Part I courses, and seeks to increase your effectiveness in your Rotary club.
  • Part III opens the door to higher Rotary service and critical examination of more complex issues.

RLI gears classes toward professional persons who want to be more effective leaders in their vocation and club, and more knowledgeable Rotarians.

The institute believes in course sessions with as much discussion/participation as possible. Lectures are limited. Course methods include discussion groups, role-playing, problem solving workshops, creating projects and audiovisual presentations. Everyone participates during the institute's sessions.

Participants return to their clubs with enthusiasm, fresh ideas, and an increased understanding of their potential as Rotarians.
