Club Leadership Team Training Workshops 15 Nov 2020
 
District 5360 Rotarians, Rotaractors and Interactors
 
I am very excited to share with you our plans for the Club Leadership Team Training Workshops to be held in February and March 2021.
 
Below is everything you need to know about this learning opportunity, but were afraid to ask:
 
Who should attend?
  •          Our District’s Rotary Family: Rotarian, Rotaractor and Interactor Leaders. District leaders recognise it takes more than a president to lead a club, it takes a team, thus it has been decided to open up the training to all leaders and potential leaders in your club.  We are hoping that at least 4-6 members of your club will attend. There is no additional charge for this training.
 
Why are we doing this??
  •          Because we believe "Ordinary people working together can achieve extraordinary results – Stronger together!
 
What will you learn?
  •          The topics will include:
  •          Part 1: “Leading Your Club” (Martin Parnell DGE), “Planning for Success” (Karen Blewett), “Setting Your Club Goals” (Linda Morris) and “The Value of Community Assessments” (Hyder Hassan).
  •          Part 2: “District Achievements” (Mary Turner DG), “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in your Club” (Sadia Khan and Steve Leavitt DGN), and “AG Roles and Responsibilities” (AG’s).
  •          Each session will be led by AG’s from across the District.
 
When will it take place?
  •          Saturday, February 20th (Part 1) and Saturday , Feb 27th (Part 2) or Wednesday, March 13th (Part 1) and Wednesday, March 20th (Part 2)
    • Each interactive Zoom session will last from 3 - 3 1/2 hours
Where will this take place?
  •          This training will be online. Go to www.rotary5360.ca , EVENTS….CLUB AND DISTRICT CALENDAR. Then select dates (Part 1 and 2) on the day/time you wish to attend and register….It’s that easy!
