Zone 26 & 27 News
A Zone Institute for zones 26 and 27 was recently concluded in Denver at the Denver Tech Center Marriott.  A “zone institute”, it is a gathering of the thirty districts that comprise the districts collectively known as Zone 26 and 27.
 
The purpose of a zone institute is that of preparing Governor-Elects, Governor-Elect Nominees, and Emerging Resource Leaders for their upcoming leadership roles.  In addition, there are educational sessions for District Membership Chairs, Public Relations/Public Image Chairs, District Trainers, International Service Chairs and Foundation Chairs.
 
After the training sessions have been completed, presentations by speakers on various topics are presented.  Some of topics at this institute included, “Start With Why”, “Telling Stories Through Photographs”, “Creating A Winning Team”, “Change the Label-Rewrite Your Story”.  In addition to the presentations, many opportunities for networking were made available with mixers, meals, and other social events.
