Presidents'-Elect Training Seminars (PETS) - 2022


Due to the ongoing issues with COVID-19 the program for PETS for this year has been changed to all virutal sessions as is now indicated below.

PETS is a mandatory training program for all incoming club presidents. This year it will consist of five virtual, Zoom sessions.  Please be sure to mark all five dates in your calendar but you only need to register once for the full five-session package.

Details, support documents, and pre-session assignments will be communicated one to two weeks prior to each session and the Zoom link for each of the sessions will be sent out 48 to 24 hours in advance of each of these sessions.
