President Elect Training Seminar (PETS) @ Denver Renaissance Stapleton Hotel

PETS 2019 Denver Renaissance Stapleton Hotel, March 1-3, 2019

Registration is now open at

As your club’s President-Elect, it is your responsibility to attend PETS.  This year we are setting a 100% attendance goal of all clubs.  We would also very much like to have your President-Elect Nominee attend, should you already have one selected.  If you can’t attend High Country PETS, please let us know.  There are other PETS available in the US, and it may be available to schedule you into one of these.  Use this LINK to view available PETS locations and schedules.

To help prepare you for PETS we have prepared the CLUB PRESIDENT’S TOOL BOX.  You can access the toolbox through this LINK

An updated Club President’s Manual “LEAD YOUR CLUB PRESIDENT 2019-2022 EDITION” is available HERE.

District 5630 Leadership Training will begin at 8:30 pm on Friday March 1st.  You should plan to arrive on Thursday evening, so you are fresh and ready to go first thing in the morning. NEW for 2019 will be Pre-PETS Learning Sessions offered between 12:55-3:30. Please refer to the PETS flyer for the full schedule and more information about High Country PETS.

Assistant Governor training will begin at 8:30 am on Friday.

Rotary District 5630 Celebration @ Ridgeline Hotel
Jun 19 – Jun 21 all-day

Please find information below for reserving a room at the Ridgeline Hotel in Estes Park for the nights of June 19 and 20. This is the site where District 5630 will be holding our district celebration. The discounted rates for these nights for single and double occupancy is $169, triple is $179 and quad is $189 plus taxes. 

June 20th will be the project day. The morning of the 21st we will have our annual meeting, a luncheon with speaker and entertainment. On the afternoon of the 21st there will be a golf outing. Estes Park offers many activities and opportunities for the family. 

Once the project details, speaker and entertainment have been finalized, registration for the district celebration will be opened, hopefully by the first of April. The celebration will include two meal times, Thursday breakfast before we head out for the projects and the Friday luncheon. The costs to attend both of those, including the entertainment after the Friday luncheon are being determined and will be broken down to a Rotarian rate, a non-Rotarian rate for spouse/significant other but no cost for kids.

The district celebration committee wants you to consider coming to this event a destination vacation for the family where you can be involved in a project that mirrors the Rotary motto of service above self, participate with our district celebration and enjoy all that Estes Park offers. 

If you have any questions, please contact me via email or phone. I’m looking forward to this event and hope to see you there.
