The Rotary Leadership Institute
Is a three part series of fast paced, interactive one day courses offered to refine a Rotarian's leadership skills and increase their knowledge of Rotary.

Who Should Attend RLI:
Rotary Clubs are encouraged to select at least two candidates for RLI annually.  Participants return to their Club with enthusiasm, new contacts, fresh ideas, an increased understanding of their potential as Rotarians and valuable skills impacting their potential leadership in the Club. In particular, new Rotarians and Presidents Elect are encouraged to attend.
 
This year, RLI is being offered in Maryborough, Swan Hill and Kerang on three different days: August 29, October 24 and February 6, 2016
 
Look on the District 9780 website and find RotaryLleadership Institute. Have a look at the program and register by June 30. Talk to Treasurer Malley re payment.

Early cancer detection is saving lives in Sri Lanka
More than 20,000 new cases of cancer are diagnosed every year in Sri Lanka, and many of them prove fatal. The Rotary Club of Colombo, Sri Lanka, set out 10 years ago to save some of those lives by establishing the Cancer Prevention and Early Detection Centre.  In partnership with the National Cancer Control Programme and the Ministry of Health, the center in Colombo has screened more than 35,000 patients, mostly low-income, and detected more than 7,500 cases of abnormalities that required further investigation. The Rotary Club of Birmingham, Alabama, USA, donated a mammography and ultrasound...

Rotary releases $40.3 million for polio immunization activities
Rotary is releasing $40.3 million in grants to support polio immunization activities in 10 countries, including Afghanistan, Nigeria, and Pakistan, three countries where the disease has never been stopped. The funds will help build on gains Rotary and its partners have been making in the fight to eradicate polio. Nigeria hasn’t seen a polio case since 24 July and the World Health Organization could remove it from the list of polio-endemic countries as soon as September if no cases are reported. Nigeria would have to go another two years without a case to be certified polio-free. But the...
Knocking down language barriers
Before the collapse of the Soviet Union in the early 1990s, Russian was the predominant second language offered in Polish schools, leaving tens of thousands of Polish emigrants without the English skills they needed.   That has changed over the last 25 years. English proficiency drastically improved after the government reformed its education system in 1991. The country overhauled its teaching curriculum and materials and introduced English as the primary foreign language. As of 2013, Poland ranks 8th in the world in English proficiency. However, one segment of the population isn’t reaping...
Member benefits program unveiled as convention draws to a close
