Visit the District 5240 website and get to know this year's District Governor, Sandi Schwartz, from the Rotary Club of Bakersfield East. Her role - like those of each individual club president throughout the district - is a big job. She will be overseeing our Rotary district's clubs, supporting their boards, providing strategic direction for the district and its staff and making a personal connection with each club through ongoing communication and visits to every single club within the district during the first half of the Rotary year. We look forward to the District Governor's visit to our our golf tournament on August 28 and her visit to our club on August 29! Following the club meeting there will be a brief Board of Directors meeting. Click here to learn more about this year's District Governor.

The goal of PRLS, begun in 1993, is to provide a set of training sessions where current and future Rotary leaders could learn to become more effective in their leadership roles.

The PRLS program offers practical training in professional circumstances that can benefit anyone on both a personal and professional level. Basic PRLS consists of a half day with three modules: Rotary Then and Now, Leadership & Leading a Meeting and Communications & Speaking in Public. This program was specifically developed to train individuals whose goals include a future leadership position in Rotary. They learn skills that will make them more effective in that role.

The subsequent sessions are carefully designed to improve individual leadership skills that are broad based and not just Rotary- specific. Participants have found substantial value in the many practical applications of information presented throughout the curriculum. The program's blend of curricular theory and practical application skills helps prepare students for success in any leadership role.

Club graduates of the Basic PRLS and Master PRLS  program include Mike Alamo, Bill Almas, Thom Brajkovich, Leslie Coe, Robin Dudley, Bob Harway, Berni Ann Lewis, John Mascarenas, Dave Nilsen, Charlene Rosales, Annie Shanks, Harry Sharp, Doug Shaw, Steve Sicanoff, Liz Summer and Linda Wilson.
