2020 Lone Star PETS Team Selection: 
Congratulations Are In Order!
Congratulations on being selected to serve as a member of our 2020 Lone Star PETS District Facilitator Team.

As a District Facilitator Team member, you have come recommended highly by your District Governor for 2020-2021. 

Your knowledge and experience as a Rotary District leader qualify you as an exemplary mentor for our future Rotary leaders.

For 2020, PETS is scheduled from Thursday, February 26, through Sunday, March 1, 2020.  Registration is now live and available on the website under the Registration tab at the top of the page.  The Hyatt Regency DFW Hotel reservation link is also live and available under this same tab. All expense reimbursement inquiries should be directed to your District Governor Elect.
Facilitator Training Schedule Information: 
Mark Your Training Team Calendar

Prior to PETS, we will host two training sessions in February which will include specialized instructions, facilitation strategy overviews, and curriculum module enactments.

The first session will be held in the DFW area, at the Hyatt Regency DFW Hotel, on February 8.  

The second session will be in Austin, at the Marriott North Austin, on February 15.  

You are required to attend one of these trainings to serve as a Facilitator; there will be no exceptions. Further information regarding specific arrangements will be forthcoming in December.
Facilitator Training Materials Information: 
It’s All About The Curriculum
The curriculum is integral to the mission of Lone Star PETS. Since last year, we have reviewed new information and documents from the Rotary Learning Center; the PETS Alliance; Rotary Institutes; and other curriculum documents. We have sought input as well from the District Governor Elects. For this PETS, we have determined that there will be no substantive modifications in the module content in the President Elect and President Nominee Facilitator Guides.
For your immediate use, and to begin your planning, the 2019 PE Facilitator Guide is available on the PETS web site under the DGE & Facilitators Site Page – Facilitators Toolkit. 

An updated Guide will be available on the web site in January; you will receive a hard copy at your training session.

Our 2021 Lone Star PETS materials will be fully digital.  Considerable planning and implementation work will be necessary and commence immediately following the close of this year’s PETS.
Facilitator Training for District Sessions:  
Let’s Get Focused for Friday
The District meeting day on Friday, February 28, is critical to the success of both our PETS weekend and curriculum integrity. The PE Facilitator Guide is the primary resource for the Friday training schedule. From this Facilitator Guide, Modules A-1 (Leadership); A-2 (Vision/Strategic Planning); A-3 (Membership); and A-4 (Foundation), are required to be taught in sequence and in content for all Districts.

District Facilitators – those facilitating the A-1 through A-4 modules on Friday in a District Session – must attend a Facilitator training session, either on February 8 (DFW), or on February 15 (Austin)

Specific assignments, materials, and arrangements for the Friday agenda should be coordinated with your 2020-2021 District Governor.   

District Facilitator Team Commitment Acceptance:
Your Prompt Response is Appreciated 
Please let me know by Monday, November 25, at mamcduffrotary5790@gmail.com if you accept or decline this offer of commitment.

We believe that we have selected the best, the brightest, and the most dedicated Team for our 2020 PETS.

Yours in Rotary Service,

PDG Mary Ann McDuff
