With 26 Rotarians from 14 clubs in 4 different districts in attendance, our April 20th District 7690 Rotary Leadership Institute in Thomasville, NC was one of the most successful in recent memory. We had 9 Rotarians in Part I; 10 Rotarians in Part II; and graduated 7 Rotarians in Part III. The Rotarians were engaged and the faculty did a great job of facilitating some lively and informative discussion. The staff at Davidson County Community College was very accommodating and the caterers from the campus Storm Cellar did a great job serving a continental breakfast, morning coffee and pastries, a hot lunch, and afternoon soft drinks and snacks.
Participants in Parts 1 and II were encouraged to continue their RLI journey at our next Rotary Leadership Institute in Pinehurst on May 24th 2018 immediately prior to our D7690 District Conference. The graduates were encouraged to attend the faculty training this July and at least 2 of the 7 graduates indicated a desire to become RLI faculty.

RLI at Myrtle Beach
September 30, 2017
It was a beautiful, hot day in Myrtle Beach, SC. Thirty three Rotarians from Districts 7770, 7730 and 7610 enjoyed a wonderful day of training and fellowship- except for one thing — a power surge during the night meant that Horry-Georgetown Grand Strand Campus had no power and most importantly, no air conditioning!
All of our Rotarians and facilitators deserve special commendations for enduring the heat.
We opened the day with greetings from Gary Bradham, District Governor 7770 followed by Rod Funderburk, past District Governor 7770 and our RLI Regional Coordinator.
