Purpose of PETS

The purpose of the Presidents-Elect Training Seminar (PETS) is to help you to be a club president who has the necessary skills, knowledge, and motivation to lead an effective club. In addition to PETS, club presidents-elect receive additional training at the District Training Assembly.

Presidents-elect are encouraged to review the resources on the Resources page where you will find the Club President’s Manual which should be read before training so you will arrive at PETS prepared to discuss their duties and goals for the coming year. PETS Idea Exchange Questions have been provided so that presidents-elect will be able to reflect on their responses before training (download this document from the Prepare for PETS page).

Attendance at PETS is now required by Rotary International for all presidents-elect in order to serve as president of your Rotary club.  If you can not attend Mid-America PETS, you can attend another PETS with your district governor-elect’s permission.  For a list of other multi-districts PETS including dates, locations and links to websites click here.
