What is Northeast PETS?
The Northeast Presidents-Elect Training Seminar is Rotary’s training program for club Presidents-Elect and Assistant Governors throughout New England and parts of Canada. The goal of Northeast PETS, as it is called, is to prepare Presidents-elect and Assistant Governors for their upcoming roles through provocative plenary speakers, in-depth breakout sessions, discussions with peers from various districts, and informal fellowship and networking with other Rotarians. Northeast PETS is a joint effort of eight Rotary International districts and includes the states of Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, southern Maine and southern Quebec.
Who Attends Northeast PETS?
Each spring, Rotary Presidents-Elect – 435 Rotarians strong – from the eight Rotary International Districts from New England and southern Quebec gather with nearly 80 Assistant Governors to train and be well prepared for the upcoming Rotary year. All incoming club presidents must attend training. If your schedule does not allow you to join us, you can find alternative locations and dates at www.petsalliance.org Please let your district governor know if you make alternate plans.
