What is PETS?

Presidents Elect Training Seminar (PETS) is Rotary’s training program for Club Presidents Elect throughout the Districts of the world. The goal of PETS is to prepare Presidents-elect for their upcoming roles.

What is CEE PETS?

Previously in Rotary Great Britain and Ireland, PETS has been held by each individual District. For Presidents Elect 2020-21 three Districts (1080, 1260 and 1240) came together for a Multi District pilot which brought together in-coming club leaders from Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire.

It would have given the opportunity to prepare our Presidents Elect for their leadership year of 2021-22 through provocative plenary speakers, in-depth breakout sessions, discussions with peers from various districts, and informal fellowship and networking with other Rotarians, but unfortunately the face to face event had to be cancelled and it was all held online.

Even online the event was so successful that we have agreed to hold it again for Presidents 2022-23 with the advantages of being a face to face event.
