PETS Committee

While it is true that club president-elects are required to attend president-elect training, we promise some fun & fellowship, along with good meals throughout the weekend. The entire program is planned and designed for you to learn how to be effective leader of your club. We hope you get the most out your time at PETS. – Court Dowis, PETS Chair

Executive Committee

Brandy Swanson
Co-Chair D6910
Curious puzzle strategist best describes me. I take great pride in overcoming obstacles, sticking with something until WE figure it out and get the "win". Always learning and improving. Connecting people, ideas and resources gives me great pleasure. So, it is no surprise that my StrengthFinder results are Achiever, Activator, Arranger, Relator and Responsibility. Two of the best lessons that guide my everyday actions are seeking to understand others first and living by Rotary's 4-way test. I have been an active Rotarian for over 25 years and served in many different roles. Most currently have served as Area Governor, District Governor Nominee, District Public Image Chair, and DEI committee. I am a Rotary Leadership Institute Graduate, Pets Facilitator, Paul Harris Society Member, Benefactor, Will Watt Fellow, and Paul Harris Plus. Thankful to be married to my high school sweetheart and best friend for over 30 years. Grateful for & proud of my 2 grown children. I value my quiet time; family time, enjoy games, scuba diving, reading, traveling, serving and gardening
