Making the Most of NorthEast PETS

General Sessions:

All sessions will be held via Zoom. Please make sure you have the latest version of Zoom installed. See this page in the House of Friendship for update instructions.
Your Personalized Zoom Link Schedule has the Zoom links for all general sessions and breakout sessions that are specific to your registration. This schedule is available online this year and can be found in the Program menu above (it will only be available after February 25). On each day of NEPETS please go to that page and enter the email address you used to register for NEPETS, or enter your registration number from the confirmation email you have received. This will pull up your personalized schedule for both days.



Breakout sessions are topic specific and will be led by discussion leaders. They will typically relate to the prior general session. During those breakout sessions, participants will work with their peers from the seven districts. This enables you to benefit from the experiences of others with similar challenges and successes.
There will be separate breakout sessions for Assistant Governors and Presidents-elect. The Assistant Governors will stay in the same Zoom meeting that the general sessions are being held in, whereas the Presidents-elect will go to their own breakout sessions by clicking a different link in their Personalized Zoom Link Schedule.

Making the most of your PETS:

You can find the full schedule here online, and also in the program book. Each day the meeting room will open 15 minutes prior to the start of the first general session to check connectivity and allow networking via chat before the official start. Please be respectful of the other participants and keep yourself on mute at all times during general sessions, and also during breakouts when not speaking. Make the most of your time at PETS! You will never have a better opportunity to:
  • Learn more about Rotary
  • Compare ideas
  • Network with other club Presidents-elect
  • Virtually see future, present, and past leaders of Rotary International
Discussion Leaders are the backbone of PETS. They are great resources, willing and eager to share ideas. Be assertive in contacting them after your session or after PETS to ask for their suggestions or benefit from their experience. Be sure to thank them for volunteering their time at PETS. This event and its entire staff have but one goal – to help you make the most of your year as president and to improve and strengthen your Rotary Club!

Contact your District Governor Elect:

The DGE is always available to support you and your club.  Feel free to contact her or him at any time, during PETS, after PETS or any time through the year when you need information, help and support.
