Rotary Leadership Institute 
Engage and empower members . . .
Energize and strengthen your Rotary Club . . .
Provide Leadership Development for Members . . . 
Learn about Rotary and have fun!
That is the Rotary Leadership Institute experience!
Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) is a facilitated program with active participation - not lecturing. Topics important to Rotary and Rotary Clubs such as Effective Service Projects, Membership Engagement, and understanding The Rotary Foundation are explored. You will discuss real challenges and exchange ideas.
Sign up yourself - you will be a more effective leader for your Rotary Club.
Nominate members and they will naturally become more engaged because they will have a richer Rotary experience.
RLI is for everyone - Leadership is not a position, it is action.
March 28, 2020* - Omaha
Dundee Presbyterian Church - Omaha
$85 paid in advance
RLI is not a repeat of other training available through Rotary and is not position specific
Club Vision Statement
We are a service organization with projects that support education and building understanding locally, nationally and globally.
