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 $140 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

PRID Ken and PHF Buntin2018 Annual Meeting
Our twentieth annual meeting will be at RI Offices in Evanston on July 19-21, 2018. Come to Evanston and 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.  The photo at the right is PRID Ken and Buntin, a long-term Cushman-Wakefield staff member who for many years attended to all of our meeting's facility needs.  From the generosity of one of our fellow Rotarians, Buntin became a Paul Harris Fellow.  Retired but not forgotten, we salute Buntin for his service.

Event Registration and Lodging
Lodging for this event will continue to be at the Hilton Garden.  Lodging reservations will be available April 1, 2018 and close June 10, 2018 or earlier if the room block is full.  Event registration will open April 1, 2018 and close when the meeting space is at capacity.

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 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 10, 2018.

  1. Register for the meeting before June 10th.
  2. Reserve your lodging before June 10th. Lodging in our block is available until June 10th or until the block is full, whichever comes first.  To obtain lodging at the Rotary MDP Alliance rate, you must use this secure Hilton reservations page or call 847.475.6400.
