The Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) is a series of fast-paced, interactive, one-day or whole of one-weekend courses designed to provide Rotarians with a breadth of Rotary knowledge that they can put into practical every-day use in their clubs. Courses are fun, topical and geared to ensure participants gain an understanding of how the programmes and resources of Rotary at all levels interconnect and can be accessed, while at the same time encouraging participants to contribute their own life and Rotary experiences through discussion and practical exercises to reinforce the knowledge gained.
The courses are intended for Rotarians with an enthusiasm for Rotary who are likely to take up future leadership roles in their clubs, ranging from President through to a project or event team leader. Candidates must be nominated to attend by the club President and commit to completing the three one-day courses within a two year time-frame, or during one weekend, and to being active participants in the course. They need to be active members of their club, having taken part if a good range of club projects and events but do not necessarily need "good Rotary knowledge".
Please note that longer serving Rotarians are likely to gain just as much value from the course as newer members; often they will have depth of Rotary knowledge in some specific areas, but lack breadth of Rotary knowledge, and this is why an increasing number of RLI districts throughout the world are asking incoming Presidents, Assistant Governors and District Committee Chairs to complete an RLI course prior to their year(s) in office.
Hopefully every club will nominate to attend RLI at least two members every year (or more if appropriate). Enthusiastic RLI graduates return to their club with new contacts, fresh ideas, an increased understanding of their potential as Rotarians and valuable skills to support whatever future role(s) they may have within their club or district.
