    The Rotary Zone 29 District Leadership Training (DLI) is being held to support District Leaders in Zone 29 as they begin their assignments for the 2019-2020 Rotary Year.

    Specific training for District Chairs in the areas of Membership, The Rotary Foundation, and Public Image will be provided.

    The content of the DLI Session will complement the training content that participants will receive at the 2019 Zones 25B-29 Institute in September. District Governors, Governors-Elect, Governors-Nominee, Past District Governors, as well as other interested Rotarians are very welcome to attend!

    One Rotary Summit (ORS) Workshop has been developed for Districts that have not yet utilized the ORS Program, and Districts that have presented ORS, but would like more in-depth information on ORS, including the 2019-20 materials.


We extend an invitation to all current and future leaders of your district to attend the Rotary District Leadership Institute in Kansas City on July 12-13, 2019. Rotary District Leadership Institutes are designed to support incoming DGEs and DGNs in building and preparing their critical leadership teams for their
year of service. It's energetic, fun, and valuable!

Hosted by Larry and Lois Dimmitt, Zone 29 Director
