Below are three of the approximately 30 planned breakout sessions:

1. Diversity, Equity, Inclusion Session Description: Through a lens of social justice, effective Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion training raises an individual's awareness of the importance of working together with people from different backgrounds, cultures and beliefs. As the world requires the intentional dedication to organizational culture, complexities of human behavior require resources that not only support new skill sets, but also communicate standards that govern expected behavior. Rotarians who understand the rules of etiquette, ethics, and respect for ALL, are more equipped to thrive and positively contribute to the welfare of society at large. DEI training assists everyone in developing a deeper understanding of civility and respect, which allows clubs to excel in their duty to serve as well as recruit new members. Rotarians learn how to detect and minimize behaviors that can undermine individuals and groups, along with inclusive actions that reflect a commitment to civil communication.

2. Membership-Growing & Engaging Members in the High-Tech World. What to expect from this session? “Learn how to recruit and retain members using email marketing, social media, and apps. We will cover how to create a digital club strategy poised for club growth”.

3. Learning Center. Brief description for this session: “Did you know that Rotary offers more than 75 online courses through the Learning Center? The Learning Center is a place for club leaders to prepare for their role; for members to gain professional skills; and, for new members and prospective members to learn more about Rotary. Attend the breakout session to get a tour, learn about course offerings, and check out our newest features.”

Other topics include: • Club Presidents • Club Presidents-Elect • Club Presidents-Nominee with the Assistant Governors • Club Secretary • Club Board Members Duties & Responsibilities • Public Image • The Rotary Foundation • Service Projects • Virtual Fund Raising • Youth Services • Digital technology/Platforms • Endowment Funds • Strategic Planning • Environment & the Watershed Project • Growing Your Rotary Club
