In September 2014, District 6080 launched the District Leadership Academy program and gave District 6080 Rotarians the opportunity to enroll in this outstanding online leadership program.
Presidents-elect, Presidents Nominee, Past Presidents, Assistant Governors, District Committee Chairs, as well as all club officers and directors and those who aspire to serve as leaders at the club or district level, are encouraged to enroll in thr DLA program. The DLA is a 7 1/2 month series of courses in Communica-tions, Membership, Public Image, Youth Services, RI Organization, and The Rotary Foundation. All courses are taught online ” using the Canvas Virtual Classroom Learning Management System. Each course is taught by an experienced Rotarian with extensive knowledge in their specific course topic.
Since District 5110 (the Academy founding district) began the program 19 years ago, 12 Rotary districts have adopted the DLA to train their club and district leaders. In all, these districts have graduated more than 1400 Rotarians. As the latest district to adopt the DLA, District 6080 believes that Leadership Academy training will provide our Rotarians with the broadest Rotary background possible, thereby enabling them to be the effective leaders that our clubs and district will need to grow and strengthen Rotary. All interested Rotarians are encouraged to learn more about the DLA and enroll for the Class of 2017. Download DLA information enrollment documents from our District Leadership Academy web site.
