I’ve been putting the finishing touches on the two upcoming Pre-PETS events (Wed @ Fairfield University) and (Thurs @ Connecticut College). We have about 85 people registered for the the two events this week.
For the Home-gamers; Pre-PETS is the first step in the training journey for the incoming Rotary Club Presidents which will take the leadership helm of their clubs on July 1, 2013. It is also the first step for incoming Assistant Governors
Pre-PETS gets everyone thinking about what is ahead and prepares them for the multi-day PETS training in March that will be held in Framingham, MA.
Putting together my part of the content (available in our gift shop on Friday) has been challenging as Rotary International has so many programs and initiatives that I did not scare want to scare away of our future leaders by hitting them with a massive data dump. So a high level overview of digestible material combined with a few laughs and a nice Rotary Chicken dinner should get this group of leaders off of the ground nicely.
I’ll post an update this weekend, hopefully with a photo or two, on the outcomes.
