Dear Rotarians of District 7770,

On Saturday, September 13, 2014 the Rotary Leadership Institute will be held at MIDLANDS

TECHNICAL COLLEGE AIRPORT CAMPUS in West Columbia, SC. This one day interactive

course at three levels is designed to enhance a Rotarian’s commitment, sustain membership, increase

the base of knowledge about Rotary, and enhance leadership skills relevant for our organization.

Clubs are encouraged to select a candidate per RLI session and support registrations costs for them.

Please share this information with your club members and encourage attendance. In return your RLI

participants return with stronger Rotary contacts, new ideas, and more dedication to the work Rotary

can do.

Summary of each part is below. We will offer the facilitated, not lecture based, training twice a year.

Participants have a choice of completing the entire RLI course in a year within our district setting or

speeding up the process by attending sessions in adjoining districts.

All levels are held in the 8:30 to 4:00 time period. Registration and Breakfast begins at 8:00 AM.

Lunch is also provided. Attendees take the three part course in order, one part per institute day. Part I

centers around what being a Rotarian means, Part II focuses on effectiveness in your local club, and

Part III blends techniques, collaborations, and programs to strengthen the Rotary journey.

Registration fee for the institute is $95 for Part I, $85 for Part II, and $75 for Part III. The RLI Zone

site for registration is www. RLI33.org or http://rlinews.blogspot.com. Then click on the registration

section.

We have blocked rooms at the West Columbia Country Inn and Suites with a special price of $79.00 including

breakfast. Those wishing to come in the night before on Sept. 12 may call 803 794-6200 to reserve a room.

This rate will only hold until August 12, 2013 due to the fact that this is the night before the GEORGIA/USC

game. You must ask for the Rotary Leadership group rate. After August 12, the rates will be $99 or $109

based on availability.

Have one of your members plan to be with us on Saturday Sept. 13 and hopefully the night before for

fellowship and to meet the faculty. Dinner the night before will be a Dutch treat for enrolled participants at a

nearby restaurant. Before the dinner there will be a meet/ greet with light refreshments in Harriett’s suite at

the Country Inn.

Thank you for your ongoing service and your willingness to encourage others and yourselves to become

stronger leaders and Rotarians.

Yours in Rotary Service,

Dr. Jimmy Williamson, District Governor

Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) is engaging Rotarians to change lives in Rotary District 7770 (East South Carolina). The Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) is a series of fast-paced, interactive, one-day courses offered to refine a Rotarian’s leadership skills and increase their base of knowledge in Rotary.

The three newest 7770 RLI graduates are Jamie McDowell, North Charleston Breakfast Club, Terrel Jones, Myrtle Beach Club, and Steve Rayl, Spring Valley Club, (Columbia).

Columbia SC RLI Graduates with Gov.
Lou Mello & RLI Exec. Dir. Bevin Wall 
Forty four Rotarians attended the Columbia, SC fall event. PDG Bevin Wall, RLI Executive Director and his wife, RLI Faculty Trainer Pam, led a full day’s event for all three parts of RLI as well as a graduate session and faculty training session. Additional Rotarians and RLI graduates serving as faculty were Sandy Brooks, Randy Hollister, Alvin Lewis, Mark Markanda, and Rosemary McDowell. Regional RLI Staff PDG Mack Parker, Bob Stinson, and Stan Kahn, managed operations and set up.

RLI Executive Director Bevin Wall in Columbia

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.
