The 2021-2022 Year is Now History

By: Jeffrey Romine
      Paul Bucurel, from D6820, Central Mississippi E-Club, and outgoing Chair of the Heart of America Division of RLI, reflects back on his last year and term in office as Chair.  “When I accepted the position of Chair-Elect in early 2018, I had little idea of what would follow!” said Paul.  As Paul looked forward to serving as Chair, it was his intention to build on the good work of the RLI – HOA leaders before him.  Then, as he prepared to assume leadership as Chairman in mid-2020, the world in general and the RLI and Rotary arena was turned upside down, as Clubs, Districts, and RLI Programs struggled to develop an effective reaction to the Covid Pandemic.

Welcome to the Heart of America Rotary Leadership Institute Database & Communications site.

RLI is designed for those Rotarians who have the potential and willingness to engage in future club leadership (not necessarily as club presidents) to provide them with a quality education in Rotary knowledge and leadership skills so important in voluntary organizations. The leadership skills you will obtain at an RLI event will help you not only in your Rotary career, but will apply to your leadership efforts professionally as well.
Each District has a local RLI coordinator who will set up the time and place for the RLI events offered in their area. That information will be communicated to the Heart of America Registrar for set up here. RLI Parts I, II, and III are organized and listed as individual events in categories according to the District(s) who are organizing them. The location and time of the RLI is listed in each individual RLI description. All RLI upcoming events are also listed below, by District number.
We offer both virtual  and in-person courses with payment by credit card or check options for RLI registration. We are using PayPal secure servers to handle payment via Visa, Mastercard, American Express or Discover, or through your own PayPal account if you wish. If you choose to pay ‘off-line’ just bring a check with you to the RLI Event.

Thank you for visiting. If you have trouble with the registration process, or some other function of this website, please contact us here.

What is Rotary Leadership Institute?

The Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) is a multi-district, grassroots leadership development program of member districts organized into regional divisions in various parts of the world. RLI is not an official program of Rotary International and as such, is not under its control.
Learn more at www.rotaryleadershipinstitute.org or download the brochure here

RLI seeks to have Rotary Clubs in its member districts identify those Rotarians who appear to have the potential for future club leadership (not necessarily as club presidents) and provide those so identified with a quality education in Rotary knowledge and leadership skills so important to volunteer organizations.

The actual Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) event is a series of fast-paced, interactive, one-day courses offered to refine a Rotarian’s leadership skills and increase their base of knowledge in Rotary.

Courses are fun, topical, interactive, and geared toward busy business and professional persons who want to be more effective leaders in their vocation and club and more knowledgeable Rotarians.

Every Rotary Club is encouraged to sponsor at least two candidates for every RLI session. Students return to their club with enthusiasm, new contacts, fresh ideas, an increased understanding of their potential as Rotarians, and valuable skills impacting their potential leadership in their Rotary club and in their careers. Registration is quick and simple and you may register on-line.
