Welcome President Elects!

Friday, February 28, 2024 to Sunday, March 2, 2024

Districts 6900, 6910 & 6920 look forward to hosting you for a fun weekend of learning

We have gathered a great group of speakers and learning facilitators to help you get ready to lead

Peach State PETS is a multi-district training initiative for the three Georgia Rotary Districts designed to provide necessary and current information to the incoming class of club presidents.  More than 200 club leaders will come together to meet and network with other club presidents, district leaders, and international leaders while learning about the operations of a successful Rotary Club.

Your Home For The Weekend

We host PETS at the Renaissance Concourse Atlanta Airport Hotel, which serves as a great central point between the 3 Rotary Districts and provides easy access for our guests flying in from out of town. Please book your room through our room block as that helps us keep costs for the weekend as low as possible.

Stephanie A. Urchick

RI President 2024-25

Rotary Club of McMurray, Pennsylavania, USA


Stephanie A. Urchick, of the Rotary Club of McMurray, Pennsylvania, USA, is the selection of the Nominating Committee for President of Rotary International for 2024-25, a decision that would make her only the second woman to hold that position. 

With the world facing incredible challenges, including the COVID-19 pandemic, disasters driven by climate change, and conflict in many regions, Urchick says Rotary’s leaders can offer a vision and a plan for overcoming these challenges.

“Measures taken by Rotary leadership to survive and end critical challenges often make our organization stronger and more resilient for future events,” Urchick says. “This kind of essential leadership also creates new levels of cooperation, even among rivals, when Rotarians pull together as people of action to serve and solve a crisis.”

Making regionalization a priority is crucial, says Urchick.

“Because Rotary operates in more than 200 countries and regions, it is vital to recognize that the organization has the potential to become more efficient and effective by understanding and reacting to how regional differences affect the way Rotarians work together to address providing service, promoting integrity, and advancing world understanding, goodwill, and peace,” Urchick says.

Urchick is partner and chief operating officer of Doctors at Work LLC, a consulting and training company. She holds a doctorate in leadership studies from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. She is active on numerous community boards and committees, and has been honored by organizations including Zonta International and the Sons of the American Revolution.

A Rotary member since 1991, Urchick has traveled to Vietnam to help build a primary school and to the Dominican Republic to install water filters. She studies several Slavic languages, has mentored new Rotarians in Ukraine, and coordinated a Rotary Foundation grant project in Poland.

Urchick has served Rotary in many roles, including as a director, Foundation trustee, and chair of the RI Strategic Planning Committee and the Foundation’s Centennial Celebration Committee. She currently serves on the Election Review Committee and the Operations Review Committee. She is a Rotary Foundation Major Donor and a member of the Bequest Society.
