On April 18 and 19 District 5040 hosted Part 1 & 2 of the  Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) seminars in Prince George. Rotarians from clubs in Prince George, Burns Lake and Williams Lake participated in the training.


PDG Rebecca MacPherson, District RLI chair thanked all the Rotarians for giving up weekend to learn more about Rotary and look for new approaches to expand the service  their clubs give to the community and new ways to involve Rotarians in club activities.

RLI Part 1 topics included:

  • Insights into Leadership
  • My Rotary World
  • Engaging Members
  • Our Foundation
  • Ethics – Vocational Service
  • Service Projects

RLI Part 2 topics included:

  • Strategic Planning & Analysis
  • Targeted Service
  • Club Communications
  • Team Building
  • Making a Difference - The Rotary Foundation
  • Membership Attraction

RLI is based on facilitated learning. There are no lectures, rather the training leaders lead discussions  on the topics and use a variety of small groups to exchange ideas and strategies about Rotary and clubs.  The seminars rely on the professional experience of the participants.

The next RLI Part 1, 2 and 3 seminars on May 7, 2015 in conjunction with the District Conference
