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

2020 Annual Meeting will be a Videoconference
Our twenty-second annual meeting will be a videoconference.  This live broadcast is currently scheduled for Friday afternoon July 17th and Saturday afternoon July 18th.  The agenda being developed includes RI leaders and staff as well as a few of our peers.  The meeting design will include general sessions with brief presentations as well as optional small group sessions.  More information will be posted on this site as well as broadcast to our event members.  Your Alliance Planning Committee is at work on additional online opportunities available in the fall.  We all are committed to the support of our member events as we navigate new ways to add value to club and district officer training. 

Registration is open for the videoconference agenda.  We will require registration in order to create the best possible experience for our participants.  At this time, the agenda segments will include a combination of presenter remarks followed by a few slides, and Q&A.  As is customary, we will to post all presentations (and other reference materials) to this site. For our 2020 event, it will be even more necessary for the participants to take advantage of the online materials.  These materials will support and further develop the topics being presented in the various segments of the videoconference.

Potential idea...some of our event leaders might be able to coordinate a planning committee meeting and participate in the Alliance conference as we sit together around a table.  Something to ponder for those geographically closer to one another.

Please stay safe and support your clubs and communities in every way you can.
