The Rotary Leadership Institute
District 9940 New Zealand
We’re building leadership capability and momentum through these RLI courses, providing Rotary Learning and Information, across the District. The latest RLI 101 held in Marton on Sunday 10th September – led by Co-Chair & ADG Lee Wilkinson & Co-Chair Gillian Jones.
Rotarians came from across the region – from Clubs: Courtenay Place, Fielding, Wanganui North, Milson, Marton and Taihape. A great mix of experience and age resulted in rich discussion and learning from each other. Previous workshops have been held in Tawa and Stratford over the last two months.
The final RLI 101 course will be held in Masterton this Sunday, 17th September. Please email Gillian Jones asap if you are keen to attend. We are delighted that DG Mitchell Brown will facilitate, along with Freya Kerr, Desmond Darby and Gillian.
The Rotary Leadership Institute Programmes – Levels 1, 2 and 3 aim to build on the already great talents of Rotarians and help them realise their own and their Club’s leadership potential through sharing ideas, projects, and best practise to position clubs to retain and grow their membership and deliver the Five Avenues of Service – Club, Vocational, Community, International and Youth Service. Dates for these subsequent workshops will be published very soon. While they build on each other, they are also able to be attended as ‘stand alones’.
