The PETS 2023 Agenda is presented below. A printed version will be provided to each paid participant.

Attendance at this training venue is defined as participating in the entire two-day event. The topics presented by our Discussion Leaders, the Districts’ Trainers, and the Keynote Speakers build upon each other. Please invest in your Rotary leadership development by setting aside Friday 8:00AM until Saturday 2:30PM. Also, consider making easier the early daily start times – include Thursday lodging if your travel time to Greensboro is greater than one hour.

Thursday, March 16

8:00 PMReception for ALL Participants [Room TBD]

The Thursday evening reception is a great time to unwind. Visit with other leaders from across at least seven Rotary districts and, often, other countries. Discussion leaders and district leaders look forward to this fellowship opportunity with all our participants. Generally, our keynote speakers also attend this social event making themselves available to any conversation. Plan now to engage with your Rotary peers at this casual, no-speeches, cash bar event!
