”RLI IS UNDOUBTEDLY ONE OF THE BEST PROGRAMS TO ENGAGE, EDUCATE AND RETAIN OUR MEMBERS.” - Monty Audenart, PRIVP and Trustee, Past Chair of the R.I. Membership and Retention Committee
The Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) is a training program established to improve the Rotary knowledge and leadership skills of the future leaders of Rotary Clubs. RLI is a great place to start for a new Rotarian looking to find their niche in the world of Rotary.  The exchange of ideas with other experienced Rotarians alone makes the courses worthwhile.
The Rotary Leadership Institute training program consists of three full-day sessions, followed by graduate seminars. Our next District 5500 program will be Saturday January 21, 2017 at the Viscount Suite Hotel, 4855 East Broadway Boulevard, Tucson, AZ 85711.
Future sessions will be announced soon for the 2016-17 Rotary year.  Because Rotary Club leadership changes on a yearly basis there is a constant need for
new leaders who are knowledgeable about the world of Rotary International. It is difficult at the Club level to learn enough about the exciting world of Rotary.  Furthermore, leadership skills in a voluntary organization are quite different from business or military leadership skills.
Cost is $60.00 and includes a continental breakfast and lunch.  Many clubs budget RLI costs to cover members attending.

The 2017 Float promotes and celebrates the 100 years of The Rotary Foundation. The Foundation empowers Rotarians to travel throughout the world and create and complete projects which serve people in need in six areas of focus which are: promoting peace, fighting disease, providing clean water, saving mothers and children, supporting education, and growing local economies.  The spectacular and colorful dragon is clearly a world traveler carrying luggage decorated with the six symbols of the areas of focus.  The Dragon also is proudly wearing a necklace with a medallion marked 100 for the 100 years of service.
