What is RLI

Want to learn about and understand the breadth of Rotary and how it fits together; the pieces in the jigsaw puzzle?
RLI provides participants with a two-part series of content rich, well-paced modules to enhance understanding of the full range of Rotary programs offered across District 9810.
RLI is a Rotary program designed to provide the “story of Rotary” through sharing of knowledge.
The courses will be run on two Sundays, with two modules being covered on each day
Participants contribute through facilitated workshops and syndicate sessions.
Members from our District who have completed the course found that the content is valuable, relevant and well worth the time invested.
