What Is The Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI)?
RLI is a multi-district leadership and Rotary development program using facilitation in small groups to engage Rotarians and strengthen clubs. RLI is a recommended program of Rotary International but is not an official program of Rotary International and is not under its control. The Mission of RLI is that as a grassroots, multi-district leadership development program, it is intended to strengthen Rotary clubs through quality leadership education.
The leadership of District 6860 understands that there are several ways to develop good leadership within our Rotary clubs and also within our business experiences. Leadership within our Rotary club differs in that we are leading volunteers, individuals who wish to serve humanity by doing good in the world. RLI attempts to prepare Rotarians to lead these dedicated individuals for “Service Above Self”. Please consider becoming a participant in the RLI program. RLI is for all Rotarians and non-Rotarians as well., Anyone who is interested in becoming a better leader and learning much more about Rotary.
The Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) was first adopted by our district during PDG Tom Milford’s term and continues to be an excellent way in which to develop leaders within our clubs. PDG Bo Porter and PDG Tom Greene, both from our district, continue to work at the district and zone levels to provide quality leadership experiences for those who choose to participate.
RLI consists of 3 sessions, with session 1 including the following topics:
Insights Into Leadership
My Rotary World
Ethics – Vocational Service
Foundation I: Our Foundation
Creating Service Projects.

Where can I learn more?
This program has a proven, successful, 20+ year track record. Please help us share that success with the deserving Rotarians in this district. Successful implementation of this program, in large part, depends on you.
You are encouraged to immediately identify one or more candidates within your club and get them started in the program.
Thank you for all you are doing for Rotary and your consideration of this opportunity!
