The Fort Collins Ale Trail and iHeart radio are sponsoring a monthly event at various breweries to promote the Ale Trail.  We are calling the events “Ale Trail Days” and each event will be simulcast on Radio 94.9.  We will have several Rotarians at each event promoting the Ale Trail in our distinctive yellow t-shirts and will have prize giveaways along with the radio broadcast.  The best part is iHeart will run 150 ads promoting the Ale Trail and the event for two weeks prior to each event.  This is generating great awareness for Foothill’s Rotary and the Ale Trail.

$70.00

Fort Collins, CO

Details:
Learn everything about Rotary that you didn't know you didn't know, and meet Rotarians from around your region to exchange ideas! Pssst ... you don't have to be an officer to attend, and attending doesn't sentence you to a leadership role in the near future.
 
RLI believes that excellent CLUB leadership (all types of club leaders) is essential to the future of Rotary in a complex and fast changing world. Most Rotarians have not been exposed to the great scope of Rotary around the world nor had the opportunity to meet other Rotarians to discuss specific ways we can all move Rotary forward.

** Please note this is a Friday evening and Saturday all-day program, enabling you to "graduate" from RLI all in one weekend!
** Dinner Friday and lunch Saturday will be provided. The program runs from 5:30 to 8:30 pm on Friday and 8:30 am to 4:00 pm Saturday.
  • Learn about the evolution of Rotary and its activities in the world.
  • Discover leadership strategies for your club, work, or other volunteer activities by participating in  interactive discussion.
  • Best of all, fulfill one of the key purposes of Rotary by networking with Rotarians from across the District.
**If you've already attended, please personally invite a club member you believe would benefit from joining RLI.

The overriding goal of the courses for club Rotarians is to create ENTHUSIASM for Rotary by opening up to them the world of Rotary outside of their own clubs 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.

Graduates of RLI bring a greatly enhanced background in Rotary when they serve in their club or represent Rotary in their community.
