This Multi-District PETS Alliance meeting is a two-day opportunity for Multi-District PETS event leaders and RI staff to share information with each other.  Through the sharing of our successes and failures, each Multi-District PETS event has the opportunity to improve the quality of training for Rotary Club and District Officers.  This twenty-four-year-old event serves all of the Multi-District PETS; currently twenty-seven events.

Between now and our meeting in July, we encourage you to review our website's contents, especially the Events, Members, Resources, and Speakers pages.  Please help us keep these pages up-to-date with the relevant details about your PETS event.  RI staff, keynote speakers, and your fellow event leaders use this information in many ways.  Please communicate any changes to Steve Denning via email (

What's the schedule?  The ever-popular (90% attendance in 2019) Wednesday evening Social will be hosted at the Hilton Garden.  The social begins at 8:00pm so there is ample time for various arrival schedules as well as dinner prior to the cash-bar Social.  We will begin our annual meeting on Thursday at 9:00am at RI Headquarters' Auditorium.  Please review our revised Meeting Agenda (as a work-in-progress) for the timeline details.  The recommended dress code is coat & tie; business attire.  After Thursday's meetings, showcased are the informal, networking dinners we always have together on Thursday night.  The Friday session (dress is casual - no ties) will begin with breakfast at RI and conclude by 3:00pm.

Please note that this is a working meeting and representatives from each PETS organization are seated together.  If your partner/spouse elects to come to the meeting with you, he or she will likely be seated in the rear portion of the meeting room.  We will make this decision based on space available.
