Registration is now open!
 
Welcome to High Country PETS! 
 
If you are reading this letter, there is a good chance that you have been selected to lead your Rotary club. Whether you are a President Elect (PE) and will begin your year in July 2020 or a President Elect Nominee (PEN), you are in the right place. Your district leadership asks you to attend PETS (President Elect Training Seminar) before you begin your year as president, but it’s not just about checking a box. You will receive many benefits when you attend PETS.The PETS Lead Trainer and facilitators continually refine and improve the materials and training that are provided to both PEs and PENs.
 
PE training takes place in small groups made up of PEs from similar-sized club across six districts. This allows you to focus on best practices that will work in your club. PENs training is conducted in the larger group of all PENs in attendance. Their focus is to provide tools to allow PENs to begin drafting plans for their presidential year.
 
Your District Governor Elect and District Trainer have been working to give you district-based information and resources through three district sessions. This is the place to make connections with others from your district and get to know the person who will be in the District Governor role during your year in club leadership.
 
With six districts participating in High Country PETS, we can bring in great speakers to encourage and motivate you, including RI President Elect Holger Knaack and RI Director Johrita Solari. Check out the schedule and speakers tab on this website and come back to see updates in the coming weeks.
 
Your District Leaders, PETS Committee, Trainers and Facilitators are looking forward to meeting you and helping you make your presidential year a great year for both you and your club. Your job is to come with an open mind, bring your Rotary enthusiasm, and be ready to both learn and teach as we share with each other.
 
See you at PETS!
