A group of 16 participants attended the Rotary Leadership Institute program on Saturday October 6. We had 4 graduates - congratulations to Gretchen, Dave, Chan and Suzanne. It was an energy-filled day - gaining Rotary knowledge and sharing ideas and challenges.
How to engage members . . .
Making projects more successful . . .
Understanding the value of The Rotary Foundation . . .
Building better clubs by educating members . . . 

When asked what clubs and participants want to get out of Rotary training and meetings, we hear things like the statements above. 
Meeting all of those needs is a challenge - but there is an answer – the Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI).
RLI has been available in District 5650 since 2006. The curriculum and format were improved in 2009 and we expanded to partner with District 6000 in Iowa in 2012. There have been nearly 275 Rotarians participate in our local program.
Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) was designed to provide discussion and activity-based programs.  There is time to go into detail on many topics.  It is not focused on a particular Rotary position but allows an opportunity for participants to truly discover Rotary.
RLI is a three-part program. Each RLI participant attends three one-day sessions. Our goal is to offer each Part with every meeting date (pending a sufficient number of registrations).
Upcoming session dates:
•    November 3, 2018 – Des Moines, Iowa
•    March 2, 2019 – D6000 (likely Iowa City)
•    April 13, 2019 – D5650
•    October 12, 2019 – D5650
•    November 2, 2019 – D6000 (likely Des Moines)
