Rotarians from District 6080 attended the Club Leadership Mega-Training Seminar April 29 in Osage Beach, led by District Governor-Elect Melvin Platt of Columbia.

“In spite of illness, accidents to family members, and the inclement weather, we had 80 persons in attendance at the training seminar,” Platt said. “I am just delighted beyond words that we had so many Rotarians attend. This may be one of largest attendances we have had at this particular training session in recent memory.”

During the daylong leadership training, participants learned more about various Rotary programs, including youth services, community service, international service, enhancing public image, attracting and keeping members, the Rotary Foundation, polio eradication and visioning.

In addition, breakout sessions were conducted for presidents-elect and president-nominees, secretaries, treasurers, membership chairs, Foundation chairs, public relations chairs and service chairs.
