RLI Myrtle Beach

           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.

We had great attendance:  Part I had 14 Rotarians, Part II had 10  Rotarians and Part III had 9  Rotarians who received their RLI pins:

First Event in Durham

Rotary RLI Durham Event Hosted by District 7710

On September 30th, District 7710 held its Fall RLI event at the Duke Corporate Center in Durham, NC.   Fall events are relatively new for District 7710.  The district recognized that Rotarians would benefit from having two RLI events a year (fall and winter) so that they could expedite the time from program start to program completion. Due to the success of the first fall event, sponsored by the Durham Rotary almost 3 years ago, the district decided to hold subsequent events in Wake Forest and most recently in Durham.  All three parts were given during the event.  Part I had 12 participants, Part II had 14 participants, and Part II had 4 participants.  Congratulations to Michael Felts, Lisa Higginbotham, Eve Marion, and H Brady Surles for graduating from the Rotary Leadership Institute.

Greenville, NC September 23, 2017 Mid-Atlantic RLI Event 

The twenty students who attended the Mid-Atlantic-Rotary Leadership Institute Training Program in Greenville, NC, September 23, 2017 finished the challenging day as enthusiastic about the program as when they entered in the morning. As two attendees emailed me after the Session:

“I found my first attendance at RLI to be very positive. EACH session was upbeat, building Rotary International and Rotary Foundation understanding, as it also built relationships across Rotary clubs.”

“I enjoyed RLI very much! Well organized, great information, amazing facility! I would recommend every Rotarian attend RLI- there is SO much information available and this is a great format to get the basics. Thank you!”

We had 2 Rotarians attending from outside District 7720. The RLI program is consistent throughout all of the Rotary Districts so that training occurring in one district will be the same as in another district. This allows the Rotarian to complete all three courses in less time by only having to travel a few miles more to attend an out-of-district program. If you want to learn more about Rotary than you already know, pick up some good ideas for your club, be kept up-to-date on what is taking place at Rotary International, and be with some great and enthusiastic people, sign up for RLI.
A special thank you to Rotarians who assisted: PDG Lee & Ed Adams, DGN Tracey Ivey, PP Mary Vincent, DG Stan Keeler, and the Mid-Atlantic RLI Faculty including our own PDG Jim Findley.

Effective immediately, MA RLI has implemented the new “Four for Three” (4-4-3) Incentive Program that applies to all Division RLI events except Mini-RLIs (Mini-RLI Policy remains applicable for these events). The policy is set up to reimburse Rotary clubs who send four or more of their Rotarians to a single RLI Event, no matter which Parts these Rotarians attend. For each four attending the single RLI event from a club, one Rotarian’s registration fee will be refunded to that club’s treasurer by the Division Treasurer. All registrations must be paid in advance.

For example, if the Rotary Club of Anytown, VA sends five Rotarians to Part I of an RLI event taking place at Hometown, VA, and two Rotarians to Part II of the Hometown event, and one to Part III of this event, the Rotary Club of Anytown Treasurer will receive a check for two registration fees ($190) from the Division Treasurer within 30 days of the Hometown RLI event.

Please share this good news with your District leadership and District Assistant Governors so the clubs can receive word about this new attendance incentive program. Thank you! RLI Staff.
