D7980 Pre-PETS Followup Materials

Rotary Pre-PETS at Connecticut College on 1/24/13

Rotary Pre-PETS at Connecticut College on 1/24/13

Despite the bitter cold temperatures both Pre-PETS meetings at Fairfield University and Connecticut College were well very attended with a combined attendance of approximately 85 Rotarians. The new 3 hour format gave us just enough time to cover all of key preparation items for NE PETS.

Both events wouldn’t have been possible without the hard work of many people including several who deserve special thanks including: Chris Johnson and Tracy Reiser who arranged for the meeting facilities and the great dinners. Steve Cooper who took the photos. Bernadette Casella, Guy Casella, Dave Marchesseault and Jianny Keegan from North Haven Rotary. Paul Mangels from Milford Rotary for arranging for the Business Cards and to all of our presenters; DG Amey, PDG Reppenhagen, PDG Benson, DGE Nori and AG Johnson.

As promised we are making all of the materials available in digital format for your reference.

Thank You for taking the time to be with us,

Rick Bassett, District Governor Elect

D7980 Pre-PETS – the final preparations

Pre-PETS is the beginning of the training journey for incoming Rotary Club Presidents

Pre-PETS is the beginning of the training journey for incoming Rotary Club Presidents

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.
