We promise to inspire Presidents-Elect to lead their clubs and to empower them to achieve success!

NE PETS March 10-11, 2023, in Newton, Massachusetts
Essential training for Presidents-elect and Assistant Governors of these seven Northeast Districts.
 
Every year there is a new Theme, new District leaders, and new leadership in Rotary International.  Come meet the leaders, discuss Rotary's Action Plan, and learn the new emphases and projects that your Club will be part of in the coming year!
 
This year’s keynote speakers will inform and reinforce our program and our conversations, inviting us all to consider concepts like “thinking out of the box”; becoming a change agent; leading your Rotary club to be more project-oriented; collaboration and flexibility. You will leave this PETS program feeling “fired up” and eager to begin the amazing year ahead as your Rotary club’s President!
 
The meeting is centrally located just off Route 95 in Newton Massachusetts at the Newton Marriott hotel.  
 
We have negotiated a favorable conference rate for attendees of Northeast PETS.
 
Events begin promptly at 8 AM on Friday, March 10.  Depending on the distance you are traveling, you may wish to spend Thursday night also at the hotel.  There will be informal meet-and-greet activities Thursday night to welcome you.
