RLI-Sunshine Divison Mission Statement

For more information please visit our web

The mission of the Rotary Leadership Institute's Sunshine Division is to provide an up-to-date, practical, and user friendly educational opportunity in convenient locations for Rotarians identified as potential leaders by their club officers. Courses are given to foster leadership skills and Rotary knowledge with the intent to motivate the participant to be enthusiastic, creative and dedicated Rotarians.




The way the online version of RLI will work is each class of Part 1, 2 & 3 are broken out into individual sessions.  The registrant does not have to take classes in succession but can pick and choose classes of their liking to take.  To complete RLI and Graduate they will have to complete all classes of each Part.

The cost of each class is $15.00 that is payable at registration.  These classes are open to all Rotarian's in Georgia, Florida and the Caribbean Islands, so the discussion will be very interesting with all the different aspects that will be brought to the class.  The Discuss Leaders are from the different Districts represented in the Zone for each class, so lots a variety. 

To sign up for these classes, pick the one you want on the District Calendar and click log in to register. You will then be sent to DACdb to sign in and fill out the registration form and pay.
