Enhance your leadership skills in the

Rotary Learning Center 

Professional development is right at your fingertips with the Rotary Learning Center, which offers members a range of interactive courses on navigating Rotary's online tools and developing leadership skills to prepare for new Rotary roles.

Anyone with a My Rotary account can take a free course in the Learning Center. Among the many courses available are How to Run a Webinar, How to Propose Legislation, Rotary Club Central Resources, and role-specific selections.

Get started by finding the Learning Center under the LEARNING & REFERENCE tab on Rotary.org. If you are already registered on the site, you will have a profile. If not, it's easy to create an account. From the MY PROFILE tab, you can modify your profile, find announcements about new and upcoming courses, and join a community to discuss what you're learning.

A great way to begin is by viewing the How to Navigate the Learning Center video tutorial, which covers what's available and how to make the most of it.

The center's catalog allows users to browse a list of subjects or see a complete rundown of all the courses offered. When registering for a course, you can either proceed to the material immediately or save it for later, returning to it from the MY COURSES tab.

One of the most popular courses is Strengthen Rotary, which teaches members to incorporate Rotary values into everyday activities. The Rotary Club Central Resources course, another popular offering, helps members set goals and improve membership information.

 

There are 10 Different Learning Plans 

Under each learning plan, there are courses grouped by Topic (86).

Each Topic might have anywhere from 1-15 different courses associated with it.

So many opportunities for Learning!

 

Today, over 70 million people are displaced as a result of conflict, violence, persecution, and human rights violations.

Half of them are children.

 

We refuse to accept conflict as a way of life. Rotary projects provide training that fosters understanding and provides communities with the skills to resolve conflicts.

Rotary creates environments of peace

As a humanitarian organization, peace is a cornerstone of our mission. We believe when people work to create peace in their communities, that change can have a global effect.

By carrying out service projects and supporting peace fellowships and scholarships, our members take action to address the underlying causes of conflict, including poverty, discrimination, ethnic tension, lack of access to education, and unequal distribution of resources.

Our commitment to peacebuilding today answers new challenges: how we can make the greatest possible impact and how we can achieve our vision of lasting change. We are approaching the concept of peace with greater cohesion and inclusivity, broadening the scope of what we mean by peacebuilding, and finding more ways for people to get involved.

Rotary creates environments where peace can happen. 

 
5910 Rotarians,
 
We may be in the midst of a global pandemic but Rotary 5910 is still going strong by serving our communities, raising funds to support those activities, and continuing to meet – not in the usual ways but adapted to the health guidelines.
 
Some clubs are finding ways to support their communities’ COVID vaccination efforts including promotion of local efforts, volunteering for non-medical support activities at vaccination sites (helping with paperwork, monitoring people after they get their shot, etc.), and posting pictures of themselves getting their vaccination to encourage others.
In other pandemic-related news, RI President Holger Knaack announced that the Taipei, Taiwan convention scheduled for June will be virtual. Like so many other events that have been moved to a virtual format, we are disappointed that we can’t meet in person, but it will allow more people to participate since it won’t involve expensive travel. The 2022 International convention will be in Houston, and we plan to assist them since we are their neighbors. I hope that many of our members will be able to attend....

The Rotary Foundation Trustees and Rotary International Board of Directors have both unanimously approved adding a new area of focus: supporting the environment.

More than $18 million in Foundation global grant funding has been allocated to environment-related projects over the past five years. Creating a distinct area of focus to support the environment will give Rotary members even more ways to bring about positive change in the world and increase our impact.

For the health and safety of all participants, District 5910 will conduct all district level events virtually in place of in-person meetings, at least through the end of December.  Rotary International strongly encourages clubs to consider virtual meetings as well, but leaves the final choice to the individual club based upon local conditions and health advisories.  Rotary is monitoring updates and recommendations from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to ensure the safest and most appropriate actions are taken for our members.  Read the latest RI response to COVID-19:
