The next RLI Classes have been scheduled for Part I (initial course) and Part II participants.  Part II participants must complete Part I before they progress to Part II training.  There will be Part I and Part II training on June 29 at the Joy Luck Restaurant, 1350 South 550 West, Bountiful, Utah.  The classes begin at 8 am and end not later than 2:30 pm on each training day.  You must pre-register and be accepted to the class in order to attend because the class size is limited to 15 participants.  Once you have registered RLI will contact you and let you know if you have been accepted and if the class has availability.  

The purpose of the Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) is to assist in improving the Rotary knowledge and leadership skills of the future leaders of our Rotary clubs. 


In District 5420 we feel so strongly about the quality and impact of this program that our Strategic Plan suggests all clubs send at least one or two members each year for participation.

The RLI program consists of three separate-day programs, six sessions each, presented over time. The programs are presented using the facilitated discussion method, rather than lecture. The $39 fee includes facility expenses, breakfast, lunch, break and training materials.

Parts are to be taken sequentially. All sessions are facilitated by certified Discussion Leaders, who are all Rotary governors, or past presidents who have attended all three parts and been certified.
  • Part I covers Leadership Characteristics, Rotary Beyond the Club, Teambuilding, Rotary Foundation I, Membership Retention, and Service Projects.
  • Part II covers Leadership Goal Setting, The Rotary Foundation II, Communication Skills, Ethics-Vocational Service, Membership Recruitment, and Analyzing Your Rotary Club.
  • Part III include International Service, Effective Leadership Strategies (double session), Rotary Opportunities, Leadership-Public Relations, and Making a Difference.

You don't need to be a current club leader or even a long-time member to benefit from this program. Prerequisites? You want to 'Join Leaders . . . Exchange Ideas . . . Take Action!'



Enrollee's should have a strong interest in Rotary and be ready to be exposed to the larger world of Rotary. Classes will be taught throughout the year. Open dates are below for your planning. You must register and be confirmed for a class in order to attend, as each class is limited. (TBC means to be confirmed)


 Part I Training - Saturday, June 29, 2019 - Bountiful

Part II Training - Saturday, June 29, 2019 - Bountiful

Part III Training - TBD

Make sure your club is represented!
The Institute training has been a huge success. It is an opportunity for Rotarians to learn more about volunteer leadership and rotary. Each training is limited to first 15 to enroll in each class. We encourage your participation. It will make a great difference in your club.
Why we have a leadership institute.
Rotary needs a constant influx of leadership as club officers, etc. change every year and it is difficult, at the club level, to learn enough about the exciting world of Rotary. Additionally, leadership skills in a volunteer organization are often different from business leadership skills. It is important for club leaders to have every opportunity for education because the success or failure of our clubs depends in large part on the quality of its leaders.
The Leadership Development program is presented in three sessions (Parts I, II and III) all required to complete Leadership Institute. Courses are designed to provide Rotary knowledge and develop leadership skills for voluntary organizations. Examples of course sessions include:
    •    The Perfect Meeting
    •    A Look Outside the Club Membership Orientation and Activation
    •    Introduction to Leadership
    •    Creating Service Projects
    •    Problem Solving Workshops
    •    Ethics and Vocational Service
    •    Effective Committees
    •    Membership Development
    •    The Rotary Foundation
    •    Analyzing a Rotary Club
    •    The Object of Rotary
    •    The District
    •    International Service
    •    Problems of Leadership
    •    Creative Service
    •    Written Communications
    •    Motivating Rotarians and Effecting Change
Why should a you participate?
If a club cares about its future, members will want the best leadership possible. This is an outstanding opportunity for each club to improve the Rotary knowledge of its key people, who will also be exposed to new ideas of leadership. The exchange of ideas with other experienced Rotarians alone makes the courses worthwhile.
Who should be nominated to attend the Institute courses?
The Institute recommends clubs nominate Rotarians who appear to have the potential for club leadership, not necessarily as future presidents. They should preferably be at least 3-4 years away from a possible presidency or other key leadership post. Candidates should certainly have a strong interest in Rotary and be ready to be exposed to the larger world of Rotary. The Institute requests each club to nominate one or two Rotarians each year.
What are the costs?
The current course fees are per registrant $39 per class.  Fees cover breakfast, lunch, breaks and considerable materials given to participants. Course fees also pay for meeting space, audio-visual equipment and promotional costs. The Institute strongly recommends clubs pay fees for their participants.
