Dear fellow Rotarians,

Welcome to your presidents-elect training seminar, where you will begin to prepare
for the most important job in all of Rotary: the job of Rotary club president.                ROTARY NORTHEAST PETS, Inc.
When a club president is qualified and knowledgeable, the club’s members have a                                Districts
great advantage. They know where to go with questions. They have a strong                   7780, 7850, 7870, 7890, 7910, 7930, 7950, 7980
presence in their club, and an important resource at every club meeting. And they
have a source not only of information, but of the enthusiasm that is so necessary to
help a club achieve.                                                                                Presidents-Elect
In Rotary, enthusiasm is contagious. When a club president is enthusiastic, the
members feel it. Their ambition and their motivation grow. They accomplish more,
and they set their goals higher. A good club president challenges the club’s
                                                                                                   Training Seminar
members. Then, the club’s members want to challenge themselves.
I love the word “challenge.” I always say, you won’t know until you try. This is true        Sheraton Framingham Hotel and Conference Center
in business, and it is also true in Rotary service. Instead of looking for a reason why
you can not do something, look for a way that you can. Don’t worry about failure.
                                                                                                        Framingham, Massachusetts
Focus on success. In this Rotary year, challenge yourself to be your very best—and
challenge the Rotarians in your club as well. They will rise to meet your                   Assistant Governor Assembly meets at The Doubletree
expectations—and you will rise to meet your own.
                                                                                                    Boston, Westborough, Massachusetts
I give you my best wishes for a productive and successful PETS, and a wonderful
Rotary year.        Yours in Rotary, Sakuji Tanaka

incoming Rotary Club presidents and (more recently) the Assistant Governors who
will be working with them. The committee of District Leaders, from the District
Governors to the District Governor Nominee-Designates, have worked very hard
all year on your behalf, to create a fun, yet effective, training program that will help
each of you as you assume your duties next year. We have planned for speakers to
inspire and educate you, facilitators who will help you make sense of all there is to
work with as you lead a club, and food and drink to encourage fellowship. And
most of all, we want you to get to know others in your district and in the Northeast,
so that you can continue to share with them when you return home.

We hope that you will approach these few days with an attitude to learn something
different, share something unique and meet someone new. We are all here to make            Eileen Rau        Richard Dietz          Terri Kidder
