Message from the Chair…………….
Welcome to the Chesapeake PETS website.  Hopefully you are on this site because you are an incoming Rotary Club President and you want to find some information about an upcoming Chesapeake PETS event.
First of all, we are a four district Rotary organization located in Virginia, Maryland and Delaware that is dedicated to providing you with the best preparation for your incoming duties as a Rotary Club President.  Your role as a Club President is the most important job in Rotary and we want you to approach those duties with the necessary knowledge, confidence and trust in your abilities to lead your Rotary Club.
The Chesapeake PETS website was designed to prepare you for your participation in the upcoming 2017 Presidents Elect Training Seminar.  At this website you should find event information, contact information, questions to ponder, ideas and resources that will help you do your job.  I invite you to explore this site and contact the governor of any of our four districts (D7600, D7610, D7620 and D7630) for additional information and visit one of our district websites as well.
At the Chesapeake PETS, we want the ‘President Elect Training Seminar’ to be the best Rotary event you have ever attended and we are prepared through a wide variety of training experiences to qualify you for serving as a Rotary Club President.  At C-PETS you will join over 200 of your fellow Presidents Elect to hear outstanding Rotary speakers in our general sessions, discuss pertinent topics with your classmates in mulit-district breakout sessions, understand district policies and programs in district training sessions, and attend optional subjects for personal development.  One of the best parts of PETS is the fellowship and hospitality you will enjoy at the event………..and the food is worth the trip.
The 2017 Chesapeake PETS meets at the Westfields Marriott in Chantilly, Virginia on 2-4 March 2017.  I hope to see you there and let me know if there is anything that I can do to help you get ready for your Rotary Club President experience.
Come Join Us!
