Rotary Leadership Institute

District 5440


Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) is a leadership development program for all Rotarians. 
RLI believes that excellent club leadership (all types of club leaders) is essential to the future of Rotary in a complex and fast changing world. Most Rotarians have not been exposed to the great scope of Rotary around the world and the leadership opportunities available to move Rotary forward.
  • Learn about the evolution of Rotary and its activities in the world.
  • Discover leadership strategies for your club, work, or other volunteer activities by participating in interactive discussion.
  • Fulfill one of the key purposes of Rotary by networking with Rotarians from across the District.
**If you've already attended, please personally invite a club member you believe would benefit from joining RLI.

The overriding goal of the courses for club Rotarians is to create ENTHUSIASM for Rotary by opening up to them the world of Rotary outside of their own clubs and also showing them the great potential of Rotary service for the benefit of the world that can be furthered with excellent leadership in our clubs.
RLI attendance does not sentence you to serving in a formal role, but graduates of RLI bring a greatly enhanced background in Rotary when they serve in their club or represent Rotary in their community.
