Three members of the Southern Rensselaer County Rotary Club participated in today’s Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI), held at Siena College in Loudonville.

Club President Debbie Rodriguez and Past President Bill Dowd were among a group of 11 Rotarians from a variety of local clubs who graduated and received diplomas for completing three years of training workshops. In addition to being able to use their skills honed in the workshops for local and district Rotary undertakings, they now are eligible for training as members of the RLI facilitator faculty for the Northeast.

And, President-elect Roberto Martinez participated in the Level 1 introductory workshop as the first step in his climb through the levels.

RLI is a facilitated discussion-style program consisting of three levels plus Graduate classes for those who have completed all those levels. It is intended to train Rotarians deemed by their clubs to have leadership interests and abilities.
