Build a Better Club with the Club Excellence Process Workshop

Does your club have a desire to learn more about service, club operation and related topics? You may wish to consider participating in a four-step, facilitator-led Club Excellence Process (CEP) Workshop. We encourage you to preview the CEP and then talk with your club about participating. If your club is interested in having a CEP Workshop, contact your zone chair, district governor or GMT area leader to learn more.
