Purpose

The Multi-District PETS Alliance is a membership consortium of the leadership of the multi-district presidents-elect training seminars. Founded in 1992, the primary objective of the Alliance is sharing best practices for training event planning and implementation. Through the sharing of our successes and failures, each Multi-District PETS event has the opportunity to improve the quality of training for Presidents-elect — Rotary's future leaders. Membership is $160 per MDP per year to support dissemination of information and the overhead expenses of the annual meeting. The annual dues provides for the participation of up to three members from each event. Should your event need to bring additional leaders to the meeting, Please contact PRID Ken Morgan for information about stand-by status and cost.

Annual Meeting

2019 Annual Meeting
Our twenty-first annual meeting was one of our best!  Lots of new faces and new ideas.  We have always promoted sharing successful innovations from our events, but this year's interactions throughout the wekeend was outstanding.  

2020 Annual Meeting
Our twenty-second annual meeting will be at RI Offices in Evanston on July 16-18, 2020. Plan now to be in Evanston next year.  This meeting enables each of us to participate in the relationships that have been developed with RI Staff and among peer event leaders to bolster our commitment to continuing the original mission that brought us together — the best club & district officer training we can present.  

Event Registration and Lodging
Event registration will open April 1, 2020 and close when the meeting space is at its capacity of eighty (80) participants.  Generally, we hit this mark within six weeks of registration opening.  Lodging for this event will continue to be at the Hilton Garden.  Lodging reservations will be available April 1, 2020 and close June 5, 2020 or earlier if the room block is full.  Please see below for notes about lodging with reservations not being available until April 1.

We recommend that member events consider sending just three representatives in order to share the opportunity for each event's top-most leaders to be present. Please contact PRID Ken Morgan for information about stand-by status if your event intends to send more than three participants to the annual meeting.  More event leaders are always welcome as long as we have the space.

Below are two separate steps and each must be completed between April 1 and June 5, 2020.

  1. Register for the meeting in April; do not wait.
  2. Lodging reservations in our room block are available after April 1. Lodging in our block is available until June 5th or until the block is full, whichever comes first.  When we open event registration, we will post a secure link to our group's discounted rate room block.  Generally, we consume our contracted room block.  Please reach out in April and establish your reservations through our portal link.
