RLI Mission Statement
The Rotary Leadership Institute is a grassroots, multi-district leadership development program whose mission is to strengthen Rotary clubs through quality leadership education
Why we need The Rotary Leadership Institute
It is generally agreed throughout the Rotary world that the success or failure of a Rotary Club depends on the quality of club leadership.  It has been said that poor club leadership is the primary cause of membership issues.   Because of the annual turnover of club officers, Rotary needs a constant influx of knowledgeable Rotarians who have the leadership skills necessary to move a club forward. RLI provides an opportunity for Rotary education that is usually not otherwise available.
