February 24-28, over 800 Rotarians gathered at the Hyatt Regency in the DFW Airport for the annual President Elect Training Seminar (PETS).  District Governor Elects (DGEs), President Elects (PEs), President Nominees (PNs), and Assistant Governors (AGs) all received training from experienced facilitators on what to expect and how to prepare for next year.
District 5770 (our district) was well represented with DGE Conni Eckstein (Sooner Rotary) leading the way.  DG David Shirley (Sooner Rotary) also serves as the Executive Director of PETS and did a fantastic job coordinating the entire conference.  District 5770 is 1 of 10 districts in attendance as this is Lone Star PETS which is mostly districts from Texas.
Rotarians also received a special guest as the incoming Rotary International President Jennifer Jones (from Canada) spoke to the group.  She is the first female RI President.
