To register for any of these sessions, go to Upcoming Events on the home page.  Please note that as the webinars are completed this year, we are making them available in the menu on the left side of this page. 


It's never too early to start preparing for your role as president.  Check out the President's Pages also on this website for a lot of information about that role and its opportunities and responsibilities.  Please click on Club Tools (from the header menu), and select from the drop-down menu, President's Pages.  These two pages will be updated regularly to supply you with assistance in preparing for your role as Club President.


The PETS Training Team invites you to check out our Rotary Club Central Toolbox page on this website with tools to get you familiar with Rotary International's Rotary Club Central.  Our RCC team has developed files and videos to walk you through the process.  The more familiar you become, the easier it will be to use them once you have determined what your club goals will be for 2021 - 2022, your year as Club President.
As reinforced with the online and face to face trainings, the more preparation you make toward your upcoming year of service, the more fluid and successful your leadership year will be.
