Additional Rotarians and RLI graduates serving as faculty were Sandy Brooks, Randy Hollister, Alvin Lewis, Mark Markanda, and Rosemary McDowell.

The support and presence of District 7770 Governor Lou Mello and Governor Nominee Ron Funderburk strengthened the impact of the sessions. With district leadership behind this program, RLI continues to thrive and prepare Rotarians to be more engaged, more knowledgeable, and more service oriented within their own clubs and areas. Attendees had between 1 and 44 years of membership in Rotary, proving that RLI is valuable to a variety of Rotarians, across ages, years of Rotary experience, and stage of their business or professional life.

The next RLI 7770 event will be Saturday Feb. 22 at the Citadel in Charleston, SC. Those attending may also come on Feb. 21 for a welcoming social and Dutch treat dinner. Dinner and hotel accommodations have been made at the Town and Country Inn in Charleston. Clubs can support RLI through announcing its upcoming programs and helping members attend the event. RLI is an international program and Rotarians may attend the sessions in any location. Additional information may be found at www.rli33.org.
