About Secretary Elect Training Seminar (SETS)

The SETS programme has been designed especially for incoming Secretary of clubs.  Running a club and becoming the right-hand man of the club president is not a small task.  Does the Secretary Elect know what is in the Rotary Club Constitution?  What are the Rotary Club Bylaws that he should know?  What are the roles and responsibilities of a Secretary?  These answers are found in attending SETS.  SETS programme includes topics such as communication, roles, club administration, membership, club records, archives and documents.

Clubs are encouraged to send their Secretary Elect to attend SETS.  The District encourages the clubs to subsidise their Secretary Elect to attend SETS.

SETS programme is conducted by trained facilitators who have strong experience in running clubs.
