The purpose of the Presidents-Elect Training Seminar (PETS) is to develop club presidents who have the necessary skills, knowledge, and motivation to lead an effective club. In addition to PETS, club Presidents-Elect receive additional training at the District Assembly.
Presidents-Elect are encouraged to read the Club President's Manual and other materials before training so that they will arrive at PETS prepared to discuss their duties and goals for the coming year. Discussion questions from PETS have been provided so that presidents-elect will be able to reflect on their responses before training. The Rotary International website has several useful documents for download. It is highly recommended that club Presidents-Elect review all documents prior to PETS.

At PETS we represent Rotary and should project a professional image. Meeting rooms are often cool, so consider layers to keep comfortable. As a guideline: NO shorts, jeans, t-shirts tank tops, sweatshirts, flip-flops.
Daily sessions are "Rotary Casual." Rotary logo ware and slacks for men; compatible attire for women.
Friday dinner meetings are a step up to "Business attire." Men should wear a suit, sport coat and tie with suitable trousers; pantsuits, blouses, dress slacks, dresses, sweaters, skirts for women.
