Rotary Southwest Presidents-Elect Training Sessions (PETS)
February 2-5, 2023
Los Angeles Airport Marriott Hotel
Los Angeles, California
District 5495 will in 2023 participate in Southwest PETS rather than conduct its own presidents-elect training, and all 2023-24 club presidents are asked to begin planning now for the event.

All District 5495 Presidents-Elect are required to complete the district-sponsored PRE-PETS classes and attend Southwest PETS in person planned Feb. 2-5, 2023 in Los Angeles. Southwest PETS will be held at the Los Angeles Airport Marriott Hotel.

The district will be providing partial financial support for registration for clubs to send their PEs to the program and provide full registration costs for assistant governors who attend. SW PETS registration includes all costs for meals, hotel and registration.

For the past few years, District 5495 has conducted its own PETS. Participating in SW PETS for this upcoming year is a one-year experiment. The District Education and Leadership Committee will discuss future participation based on feedback from those attending the 2023 program.

Presidents-Elect with questions are asked to contact District Governor-Elect Kevin Pitts for additional information.

Pre-PETS training classes are available in the Rotary Learning Center. A list of classes and a proposed schedule of completion are included in the PDF below. Presidents-elect should download the document and begin reviewing the classes as recommended. DGE Kevin Pitts will conduct virtual sessions beginning in January to review and discuss courses.
