Practical Relevant Leadership Skills - PRLS
The Object of PRLS
To provide a training environment for Rotarians to learn effectiveness as individuals on a daily basis.
The goal of PRLS, begun in 1993, is to provide a set of training sessions wherein current and future Rotary leaders could learn to become more effective in their leadership roles.
Basic PRLS has been renamed Intro to Rotary and consists of a half day with 3 modules: Rotary Then and Now, Leadership and Leading a Meeting and Communications and Speaking in Public. This program was specifically developed to train individuals whose goals include a future leadership position in Rotary. They learn skills that will make them more effective in that role.
The subsequent sessions are carefully designed to improve individual leadership skills that are broad based and not just Rotary- specific. Participants have found substantial value in the many practical applications of information presented throughout the curriculum. The program's blend of curricular theory and practical application skills helps prepare students for success in any leadership role.
The PRLS program offers practical training in professional circumstances that can benefit anyone on both a personal and professional level.

The Heather Frankle Project Fund will be used to fund Rotary projects in District 5240 and in communities around the world that lift people out of poverty and provide them with a better future. Emphasis will be in two areas of focus – Water and Sanitation and Economic and Community Development. Heather knew that that the health of a community began with clean water and sanitation. She was committed to economic development with a focus on microfinance as a means of empowering people to realize their full potential. She worked closely with the Water and Sanitation Rotarian Action Group (WASRAG) and Microfinance and Community Development (RAGM) to enable Rotarians to do good in the world. Your contribution to the Heather Frankle Project Fund will continue her commitment to changing the world one life at a time.
A special fund has been set up for contributions for the continuation of Heather’s humanitarian work.
Donations will be accepted at the Heather Frankle Project Fund, C/O the Simi Sunrise Charitable Foundation, P.O. Box 941101, Simi Valley, CA 93094-1101
Last year, under the leadership of IPDG Jim Bell, District 5240 was designated a Peacebuilder District.
Rotarian Tom Schneider, Rotary Club of San Miguel de Allende Midday, attended our district conference and brought a gift for each club in our district. We provided assistance to Tom and his club in translating the video "Peace Is" into Spanish.
You can follow our peace programs on the District 5240 Web Site at http://www.rotarydistrict5240.org/SitePage/peace-page. and in future issues of the District Foundation Newsletter.
Together, we can make peace happen.
Yours in Rotary Service,
District Governor, Rotary Year 2016-17
