PETS (President-Elect Training Session)
Congratulations on being selected by your club to lead them during the 2024-2025 Rotary year. PETS is a very different training experience that will provide you with the important information that you will need to lead your club in the coming Rotary Year.
  • You will learn about leadership strategies that will empower you to manage your club; The Rotary Foundation; and Rotary International’s Public Image and Branding campaign.
  • Your interactive sessions will allow you to share your ideas with your fellow Presidents-elect.
  • You can network to form Rotary and professional partnerships with your “classmates” through our sessions and District Hosted Hospitality suites.
Our optional sessions take place on the evening of Thursday, February 22nd and your RI required sessions begin on Friday, February 23rd and conclude on Saturday, February 24, 2024. You must register for PETS and make your hotel room reservation. Your PETS registration has been paid by the District, however, the cost of your hotel room is covered by you.

On July 1, 2024, you will become the president of your Rotary club along with more than 33,000 Presidents-elect around the world. This is both a privilege and a responsibility.

Attending MAPETS is the very best way to insure that you have all the tools that you need to be a successful club president.
