From Kathleen Simko's newsletter:

The success or failure of your club depends in large part on the quality of your leaders. If your club cares about its future, it will want the best leadership possible. For the second year, District 5400 is offering an outstanding opportunity for each club to improve the Rotary knowledge of its upcoming leadership! What does Rocky Mountain Rotary Leadership Institute (RMRLI) Offer? Three sessions will be presented for the 2011-12 year. In Boise and Pocatello on Saturdays: Oct. 1, Nov. 5 andS Feb 25; Twin Falls  Sept. 24, Nov. 12 and March 3. Classes run 8 am—4 pm. Registration is available at
Completion of all three parts is required to graduate from the Institute. The total cost is only $50 per participant per session. (The Club will pay) which covers breakfast, breaks, lunch and materials. Graduates, facilitators and coordinators will be honored at the May Sun Valley Conference.

A course workbook containing an Institute Manual, session program agendas, faculty listings and course outlines and materials, will be provided to each attendee.
