Northeast PETS

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

What is Northeast PETS?
