​Welcome to the 2021 Southwest Rotary PETS (President-elect Training Seminar). Now in its fifth decade, Southwest Rotary PETS will provide training and certification to incoming Presidents-elect from seven Rotary districts in California, Nevada, and Arizona.

In past years, we have put on amazing training programs at the Los Angeles Airport Marriott. Many leaders within Rotary can point back to PETS as that time they changed from being a member of Rotary to becoming a Rotarian. Unfortunately, COVID-19 had other plans this year, and we have had to move our training program online. While the pandemic has been incredibly disruptive, it has given us the opportunity to completely re-imagine PETS from the ground-up for a virtual environment. The new Southwest Rotary PETS will be a two-day virtual event on March 5-6, 2021, and will introduce a new format, new virtual networking opportunities, and more surprises in store.

I would also be remiss if I did not heap praise on our amazing committee that has been hard at work on this program for months, streamlining our training and designing a completely new PETS experience for over 400 incoming Rotary club presidents. You will be very pleased with the results.

Registration is now open, and we encourage you to take advantage of special early bird registration through January 15, 2021. Please bookmark this page, and be sure to subscribe to use on Facebook and Twitter for more updates. This promises to be a PETS like no other, and I truly look forward to welcoming you virtually beginning March 5, 2021.

Sincerely,

Scott C. Carr
Southwest Rotary PETS Chair, 2021
Past President, San Diego Downtown Breakfast Rotary
