What does the Rotary Leadership Institute offer?

The Institute offers a leadership development program in three full day sessions (Parts I, II and III). The courses are designed to provide Rotary knowledge and to develop leadership skills for voluntary organizations. Some examples of course sessions include:

  The Perfect Meeting A Look Outside the Club
  Membership Orientation and Activation Introduction to Leadership
  Creating Service Projects Problem Solving Workshops
  Vocational Service Effective Committees
  Membership Development The Rotary Foundation
  Analyzing a Rotary Club The Object of Rotary
  The District International Service Problems of Leadership
  Creative Service Written Communications
  Motivating Rotarians and Effecting Change Club Communications

Should our club participate?

If your club cares about its future, it will want the best leadership possible. This is an outstanding opportunity for each club to improve the Rotary knowledge of its key people, who will also be exposed to new ideas of leadership. The exchange of ideas with other experienced Rotarians alone makes the courses worthwhile.


Who should be nominated to attend the Institute courses?

The Institute recommends that clubs nominate those Rotarians who appear to have the potential for club lead- ership, not necessarily as future presidents. They should preferably be at least 3-4 years away from a possible presidency or other key leadership post. Candidates should certainly have a strong interest in Rotary and be ready to be exposed to the larger world of Rotary. The Institute requests each club to nominate one or two Rotarians each year and to support previous nominees in completing Parts II and III.


What are the teaching methods?

The Institute believes in course sessions with as much discussion/participation as possible. Discussion breakout sessions are limited to approximately 10-15 persons. Lectures are strictly limited. Course methods include discus- sion groups, role-playing, problem solving workshops, creating projects and audiovisual presentations. Everyone participates during one of the Institute’s sessions. A course workbook containing an Institute Manual, session program agendas, faculty listings and course outlines and materials, is provided to each attendee.
