District 5495 is proud to promote our very first District Resource Summit. District leaders are encouraged to maximum attendance and participation.
 
 
A critical element to creating a successful District is providing effective planning and collaboration among District leaders. When club officers are well-prepared to perform their duties, club members are better served. This makes the member experience more positive, which leads to a quality club experience and increased member retention. Without proper planning and collaboration among leaders at every level, districts and clubs cannot meet members' needs or introduce the benefits of Rotary to others.
 
Date: October 20, 2018
 
Time: 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.  Lunch will be served.

To utilize the limited time at the District Resource Summit most effectively, there will be a pre-summit webinar to discuss first steps for the summit. District leaders, please plan to attend.
 
Pre-Summit Webinar: September 24, 2018 at 6 p.m. Login information will be distributed to District leaders. Contact DG Jim Erickson or Angel Aguirre for questions.
 
Goal: Provide an opportunity to inspire District committee chairs and assistant governors to collaborate with each other and plan strategically for a strong future, while creating a succession plan for committees and District leadership.
 
Objectives:
  • To provide District committee chairs and assistant governors with an opportunity to plan and cross collaborate.
  • To provide a forum where district resources can share information and insight on the three Rotary Essential Issues—Support and Strengthen Clubs; Enhance Public Image and Awareness; and Focus and Increase Humanitarian Service.
  • To educate assistant governors about the resources available and obtain insights on how we might work together for the benefit of their clubs.
  • To provide understanding of the District resources and functions for interested District Rotarians.
  • To motivate Rotarians to serve in positions at the District and possibly at the Zone and International levels.
Opportunity to attend as a guest:

The District strongly encourages Rotarians to serve in positions beyond the club and possibly at the Zone and International levels, however, the Resource Summit is a working summit. Therefore, apart from the District leadership roles, there are only a limited number of seats available for interested Rotarians in the District. Contact DG Jim Erickson or Angel Aguirre for information on how to apply to attend.
