Virtual Club Leadership Training & Area Governor Training
Saturday, August 22, 8:30am to 1:00pm

I, the DG for our D7620, would like to share this exciting news with you that our Club Leadership Training today was a smashing huge success.  Our registration number was a record-breaking nearly 200, the most successful CLT I've ever seen in our district. I thank all of your participation, your enthusiasm, your great support to make this happened. This virtual program was designed and executed by District Co-Trainers Ayse Orellana of the Metro Bethesda Rotary and Chris Zabriskie of the Charles County La Plata Rotary, assisted by Pam Kreis, Education Committee member from Ellicott City Rotary, and Sonia Liu, District Executive Secretary and member of Metro Bethesda Rotary.
Keynote Speaker: Terry Weaver, PDG from District 7750, Western South Carolina, District Trainer, and Assistant Rotary Coordinator for Zone 33.  He presented "Recipe for Changing Club Culture" on CLT General Session.

We got a special guest as our audience, the RI Director Peter Kyle.  Peter was once again our district avid participant supporting what we do.  We can't be proud enough to have you Peter.  Thank you for your strong support!

And a very special thanks to our keynote speaker Terry Weaver.  Not only did Terry provide us a very insightful approach about his topic "Recipe for Changing Club Culture" but also kindly guide us through in many aspects, his great strategy is a big drive to our huge success.  I can't thank him enough.  I represent our entire district to say "Thank you so much, Terry!  We love you.
