What to Know Before You Go 

How to Register

Registration is open at regular rates until February 10, 2024.  After that date, you have only a limited time to register with a $50 late fee (online registration closes on February 25).  Your district may have registration links designed especially for PEs, PENs, and AGs on their website or click on the "Register" link below.  If you are registering as a guest, partner, District Leader or PETS Committee member or facilitator, you can access appropriate registration links here:  Register

How much does it cost?

Registration for the full PETS conference (from Friday evening through Sunday morning) is $450. Many of our six districts cover the cost of the conference for Rotarians in specific roles. Cost for your district and registration type is indicated as part of the registration process or check with your District Governor Elect (DGE) to confirm your district's practices. 
Some participants (including District Officers, Spouses, PDGs, or other guests) may select individual meals to attend. Total registration for these registrants will be the sum of the meals selected. 

When Does it Start?

That depends on what district you are in!  Some districts will start early on Friday. Check with your DGE or Assistant Governor to find out what time you need to be in attendance. 

Types of Classes

There are two basic types of classes:  District Sessions and facilitator-led PETS Breakout Sessions for PEs, PENs and AGs. You will find the schedule of these sessions, as well as the schedule for plenary speakers at meals, in your program. You will find your personal assignments for PETS training sessions on your name badge.
Hotel rooms are not included in the PETS registration!
Our conference hotel is the Westin Hotel, Westminster - 10600 Westminster Blvd, Westminster, CO.
Reservation link coming soon!
The PETS Room Block is available until February 20, 2024. Room rate is $135/night plus fees.

The Westin Westminster is about 25 miles from Denver International Airport (DIA). The hotel recommends getting an Uber or Lyft ride from DIA. Public transport is possible, but will require transfer and walking. You can research your route on RTD's planning page (https://www.rtd-denver.com/app/plan).


All meals, from Friday dinner to Sunday breakfast, are included in PE, AG, PEN, Committee Member and Facilitator registration. Guests, Partners, PDGs and District Officers may select either full registration, including all meals, or select from a variety of meal package options during registration. 


You will be very busy while you are at PETS!!  Most attendees, when walking out of the hotel on Sunday, think to themselves, “Wow!  That sure went by fast!”  PEs and AGs are expected to attend all events assigned and other participants will get the most out of the experience by participating fully.  There will be opportunities Friday and Saturday evening allow for socializing and building your support network, both in and out of your own District. Also, try sitting with people you don't know during meals. It's a great way to get to know other Rotarians.  To see the complete schedule, click here:  PETS Schedule and Speakers

What to Bring

Besides your luggage, there’s not a lot you have to bring.  You will want to bring a workbook to take personal notes from classes, plus bring a lot of fresh ideas and enthusiasm. There is NO wireless in the classrooms, but iPads and tablets are acceptable for taking notes. 
What to Wear
Rotary-themed attire is strongly encouraged (check out the vendors all weekend). Business casual attire is appropriate for training sessions, as well as all meals, general and district sessions. 

Who Puts on High Country PETS?

High Country PETS is a cooperative effort among 6 Districts, ranging from Montana to Colorado and including Utah, Wyoming and parts of Nebraska and Idaho. The PETS Committee is made up of District Governor-Elects from each of the 6 Districts involved, along with many operational support members.
