What is our Mission?
The mission of The Rotary Leadership Institute North East America is to provide an educational opportunity for Rotarians identified as potential leaders by their club presidents. Each club president is asked annually to nominate club members as potential club leaders (not necessarily future presidents) in the years ahead. Courses will be given for the nominees to foster Rotary knowledge and leadership skills. It is hoped that these courses will also motivate the participants to be enthusiastic, creative and dedicated Rotarians. Those attending the three course days for their full duration will receive recognition of completion. Course methods will reflect the most innovative and participatory methods possible. Methods will include discussion groups, role-playing, problem solving workshops, group planning exercises, etc. Lectures are limited.
What are the courses?
The Institute offers a leadership course in three full day parts (Parts I, II, III), plus a Graduate course for those who have completed all three of the previous parts. The courses are designed to provide Rotary knowledge and to develop leadership skills for voluntary organizations. Some examples of course sessions include, “A Look Outside the Club”, “Membership Orientation & 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 & Effecting Change”.
