          *The Club President’s Manual and Club Secretary’s Manual each include an addendum on the inside cover with policy changes from the 2016 Council on Legislation and decisions from the RI Board and the Foundation Trustees.                                                                           


          Policy for President-Elect relative to eligibility to serve as President

          To support the success of our clubs, it is essential that the President-Elect receive support and training in advance (as well as during) their year as President.

          It is therefore a district mandatory requirement for the PE to attend a Pre-PETS workshop provided by the district.

          It is also a mandatory requirement by Rotary International (ADOPTED ENACTMENT 07-46*) as well as the district for each President-Elect to attend the President-Elect Training Seminar (PETS) prior to their becoming President.
          The Club Officers’ Kit was mailed to governors-elect in November and is also available at The kitincludes the following manuals:

          As stated in the RI requirement, failure to comply with this ruling, will make the PE ineligible to assume the Presidency of their club.


          The following documents are available for download and review for PEs before attending Midwest PETS.  These materials are available for to help prepare you with background and information you should receive in Pre-PETS and during Midwest PETS.  Many of the Club Manuals have been updated recently by Rotary International, and have been linked here for your convenience.
