"Having leadership skills does not alone assure good Rotary leadership. An effective Rotary leader must ALSO have Rotary knowledge, perspective about where Rotary has been, where it is now going and a vision of what Rotary can be."


Has your club experienced any problems getting members to step up and take on leadership roles ? 

Have you had any candidates for Club President who were really reluctant to accept the position because they didn't know much about Rotary or had not been in the club very long?

Do you have any members in your club who have been there quite some time but don't seem to exhibit much understanding about what Rotary really is all about?

If you can answer YES to any of these questions, then the Rotary Leadership Institute (R.L.I.) is a tool that can help you.  It can also help the District by enabling those Rotarians who aspire to serve beyond the club level to gain knowledge, skills and perspective that will be key elements in their quest.

The Rotary Leadership Institute was founded by Rotarians in New Jersey in 1992 and now is offered in more than 160 districts, worldwide.  While not an official Rotary program under RI's control, it is approved by Rotary-an unofficial affiliate of Rotary International.  The pervading purpose of the courses offered through the RLI is 'to assist in improving the Rotary knowledge and leadership skills of the future leaders of clubs and districts.'
