|Now that the new Rotary year is right around the corner, the new Presidents-Elect
should mark their calendars for the 2012 PETS. There is no better
than attending PETS which is scheduled for March 22-25 at Hyatt Regency
DFW. In fact, attendance at PETS is now required by RI for all
president-elects in order to serve as president of your Rotary club. (PETS REGISTRATION & HYATT ON-LINE REGISTRATION ARE NOW ACTIVATED)
|This year 2012 District 5890 will be conducting a pilot program at
PETS and will conduct a portion of the President-Elect Training as a
District for the entire day on Friday. During this training session
with the DGE, Staff and the AGs, the Club President-Elects will be
provided the tools to do an effective job to lead their club in the year
ahead. Thus the PEs are encouraged to bring (preferably completed)
their Planning Guide for Effective Rotary Clubs, Membership Goal Forms
and Foundation Goal Forms.
You are encouraged to arrive on
Thursday evening and remain thru Sunday morning. The Saturday portion
of the training will be the integration of all the like sized clubs
within the 10 participating Districts of Lone Star PETS. Sunday morning
will be a special session for the Rotary Foundation and Future Visions.
Visit Lone Star PETS
for additional information. The purpose of the Presidents-Elect
training seminar (PETS) is to develop club presidents who have the
necessary skills, knowledge, and motivation to lead an effective club.
In addition to PETS, club Presidents-Elect receive additional training
at the District Assembly.
Presidents-Elect are encouraged to read the Club President's Manual and Club Leadership Plan before hand so that they will arrive at PETS prepared to discuss their duties and goals for the coming year. PETS Discussion Questions have been provided so that presidents-elect will be able to reflect on their responses before training.

training and discussions. Each Club President will be expected to
complete this document and submit to the District Governor prior to
