The Club Officers and Leadership Seminar 2019 took place on Saturday 11 May at Sarah Lawrence College (Bates Center for Student Life).  An exciting and comprehensive program was drawn up for the Seminar, which began at 9 am.

There were three concurrent Hands-on workshops:

Workshop 2             Grants: District and Global Grants:  Grant Benefits, Applications and Process     
Workshop 3             Rotary Online: Helping your club grow : RI & District Online Resources
