Board Chair
District 5080

It is a distinct honor to welcome you, on behalf of your District Governors-Elect and the PETS Operating Committee, to the Pacific Northwest Presidents-Elect Training Seminar.   This may well be the most important training event in which you ever take part, because Club President is recognized around the world as the most important position in Rotary.

Your DGE’s and the Operating Committee are committed to the pursuit of excellence in curriculum, training, speakers and atmosphere.  We know you are giving your most precious resource, your time, to participate during this weekend, and that it must be time well spent for you, and for your club.  You’ll acquire knowledge and insights that will enhance not only your Rotary endeavors, but also your personal and professional skills.

It has been said that “the answer is always in the room”, and nowhere is that more evident than right here during PETS weekend.  Our highly qualified training leaders will draw out most of those answers during your “official” sessions, and you will draw out your remaining answers during the myriad opportunities for fellowship with your fellow P.E.’s and your District Leadership.  One recent participant wrote:  As a person who is not overly outgoing, I found it so easy to fit in and meet my fellow PE’s, DG’s, AG’s, etc.  I enjoyed every moment of PETS.”

We hope that you will find this website easy to navigate, informative, and helpful to your development as the President of your Rotary Club, and that it will help you prepare for the great weekend you have ahead of you..

Finally, we wish you the very best in the most important year you’ll have as a Rotarian!
