Registration has opened for District Training Assembly on March 30th. Our Rotary International and District Leadership invite all members to attend, as it will provide a wealth of information on managing and optimizing your participation in club operations. "Rotary Club, District and International leadership changes each year, so special effort is required to provide club leaders with appropriate instruction for the tasks they will assume. District Training Assembly is the major overall leadership training event in each Rotary district of the world. The workshops offer motivation, inspiration, Rotary information and new ideas for club officers, directors and key committee chairmen and members of each club. Some of the most experienced district leaders conduct informative discussions on all phases of Rotary administration and service projects [including membership, public image, foundations, local and international grants, etc.]. The sessions give all participants valuable new ideas to make their club more effective and interesting. We have something for everyone. Bring your entire membership to this one of a kind event! Join us in Columbus at the Convention and Trade Center, 801 Front Avenue on March 30th." Fee: $35.00.
