What is Rotary Leadership Institute?
RLI is a grassroots coalition of Rotary districts implementing a leadership development program for training “potential" leaders of Rotary and Rotaract CLUBS. Established in 1992, RLI has become a worldwide organization with divisions in every Continent of the world. While it is an unofficial program of Rotary International, it has substantial support of a number of past Rotary International Presidents and current, past and incoming R.I. Directors. The R.I. Board has adopted a resolution recommending RLI or similar programs to the districts and the Council on Legislation has twice recommended RLI to the Board. The Rotary Leadership Institute is not an official training program of Rotary International.
RLI believes that excellent CLUB leadership (all members) is essential to the future of Rotary in a complex and fast changing world. Most Rotarians and Rotaractors have not been exposed to the great scope of Rotary around the world and have not considered what leadership skills are necessary to move Rotary forward.
RLI strongly believes that a good Rotary and Rotaract Club leader must know the evolution of Rotary, its current status and activities in the world and have a vision for what Rotary can be in the future. RLI Courses will provide Rotarians and Rotaractors with knowledge and leadership skills necessary for volunteer organizations.
Upon completion of RLI I, II and III, you are eligible to take “Graduate” courses in “Motivating Volunteers / Membership Issues, Ethics, and or Diversity in Rotary.” Graduate courses are offered by the Lone Star Division of RLI.  
The overriding goal of the courses for club Rotarians and Rotaractors is to create ENTHUSIASM for Rotary by opening up to them the world of Rotary outside of their own community club and also showing them the great potential of Rotary service for the benefit of the world that can be furthered with excellent leadership in our clubs.
RLI is a general education program, while most Rotary International training programs are "job-specific"; that is R.I. trains Rotarians and Rotaractors for specific positions. RLI is not a PETS (President Elect Training Seminar) or any other district training program, but graduates of RLI bring a greatly enhanced background in Rotary when they later attend job-specific programs.

The Rotary Leadership Institute is not an official training program of Rotary International.
