The Rotary Academy started with the weekly series of training sessions on July 15, 2020 via webinar. The participants were welcomed by an inspirational message from RID 3780 Gov. Johnny Gaw Yu and a message from RI Pres. Holger Knaack.
PDG Danilo “Danny” Fausto (District Trainer, RY 2020-2021) gave an overview of this 4 months training. This program is in cooperation with the Rotary Leadership University with PDG Rufino “Penny” Policarpio III (Dean, Rotary Academy). The program has adapted to focus on Club Management under the new normal.
The first topic, “Taking your Club Online: Myrotary.org & Online Meetings” with PP Nikko Carlo Cayaga (District Information and Communications Officer) discussed the basics of the rotary website, use of online tools, and the conduct of virtual meetings.
This well-attended webinar hosted by RC West Triangle had over 160 participants.
