The Presidents-Elect Training Seminar or PETS is the annual event that provides valuable training and networking opportunities for Rotary and Rotaract Club leaders alike.  
Our Club was represented by President-Elect  AG Bina Ahmad who acted as Adviser and guide to the first-time new Club Presidents-Elect from the Promise, Hope, East-West, Westchester. 
All those present were enthusiastic participants, eager to learn and connect with fellow members of the Rotary community. They attended a variety of training sessions, including sessions on leadership, project management, membership satisfaction,  public image, and The Rotary Foundation. These sessions were led by experienced Rotarians who shared their knowledge and expertise with both the newly minted Club leadership and returning leaders alike.
In addition to the training sessions, all participants also had the chance to network with Rotarians from across the Mid-Northeast region. They met with current and incoming Rotary club presidents, as well as other Rotary leaders and volunteers. These connections will serve them well as they continue their work within their own clubs and communities. 
The highlight of the 2-day training was the presence of Rotary International President-Elect R. Gordon R. McInally and his wife Heather as well as Rotary International Director for our Zone, Drew Kessler, and his wife Vicki.  The presence of these Rotary leaders encouraged and enthused the 300+  attendees, at the Hanover Marriott in Whippany, NJ.
Overall, the Mid-Northeast PETS was a valuable experience for the upcoming club leaders of District 7230, and a reminder of the importance of training and networking within the Rotary community. By investing in the development of our members, we can continue to make a positive impact in our communities and around the world.
