Notes from the District Leadership, Education, and Development (LEAD) Committee


It’s hard to believe, but we are almost one and a half months through the Rotary Year. Time flies when you are having fun - and we hope you ARE having fun! 

As your current Club leader continues to apply some of the best practices they learned in their leadership development sessions, the District LEAD committee is already working on planning sessions for the 2020-2021 Presidents-Elect. At this time, 38 of our clubs in our district have identified a President Elect.
The LEAD Committee is planning PETS-1 for Saturday, November 23rd t the Akron Rotary Camp. We look forward to seeing all the Presidents-Elect there, and we want clubs to send a representative if the President Elect cannot make it or has not yet been identified. In addition to District 6630 sponsored development, we ask that clubs begin the process of developing their members for future leadership roles.
Some of the topics we will address at PETS-1 include: Setting Club Goals, Building an Effective Leadership Team, Working with Volunteers, and more! As Presidents-Elect and clubs begin to think about their future, we encourage you to utilize Rotary International’s new Strategic Plan. This new Vision can help guide your club’s initiatives, promote Rotary, and increase membership as we look to the future.
Rotarians input helped build the plan. You may notice that the plan is different than in the past - please take time to look at it and read the message from Stephanie Urchick, chair of Rotary's Strategic Planning Committee.
