 RYLA Director, Clint Ishmael announced in a January 16 the memo to club RYLA coordinators several operational changes to this years RYLA event that will streamline the application process for sponsoring clubs and participants. Below is the memo highlighting the significant changes.
Greetings RYLA Chairs and contacts of years past! I hope you are having a great year and are looking forward to a happy and prosperous 2020. Believe it or not, it is time to start working on our 2020 RYLA Experience! I am sending this email out to all of my RYLA Chairs and contacts from 2019 in hopes that most have remained the point of contact for their local Club.
REALLY need the following information from my clubs!
If you will be coordinating or will be a contact for RYLA 2020 for your club, please reply to this email to confirm and let me know if your contact information needs updating. I have received verification from about 20 clubs but I need all my clubs to send me a note to let me know you are the point of contact.
If you will NOT be coordinating RYLA 2020 for your club, please reply to this email to tell me you are not the Club contact and if possible, provide a contact for the new RYLA Chair for your Rotary Club.
I have included the 2020 RYLA Club Packet in this email. Please take the time and read through the packet. It has all the information you need to have a successful RYLA year. I have also included the link to the online “Request for Application” that every student MUST complete in order to begin the 2020 RYLA three-step process.
We have implemented a big change for our application process this year! Clubs will no longer be responsible for sending applications to the students to have them completed. We will do that at the District level and when you receive a student application, it will be complete and all you need to do is review your applications and select the students you wish to sponsor. I think this will reduce confusion and streamline the process for the Clubs.
We already have camper applications coming in for the 2020 camp and if you have not started, I encourage you to begin recruiting your students. If you need help, email me or call me at 817-774-3102. Our goal the 2020 RYLA Camp is 150 students! RYLA is an amazing opportunity for young leaders to experience and YOU are the gatekeeper for that opportunity. Thank you for your continued support of the RYLA program. Go RYLA 2020 for the new decade!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
