Nominations for District Governor (DG) for 2022-23 are now open, says Dave Reece, past District Governor and Nominating Committee Chair. Clubs are asked to nominate Rotarians who desire such a leadership role. Nominees must have been a club president and served seven years in Rotary by the time they become district governor. “This is an exciting and very deliberate process,” said Reece, who asks all club members to give nominees “careful consideration.”
The commitment is five years from the time the individual becomes DG nominee through past DG years. The call for nominations is open for six weeks until Oct. 10, 2019 in accordance with District 5110 Policy Manual. Once nominations have been received, candidates undergo an interview process and are asked to attend the District Grants Meeting, Oct. 19 in Bend to deliver a speech and meet with the Nominating Committee for an interview and selection.
The timeline is below and application forms available for download. “If you know of a candidate that you feel is worthy of nomination please urge their club to nominate them,” asked Reece. For questions, contact Dave Reece or any member of the Nominating Committee. “We look forward to the exceptional candidates you will bring forth to the committee and our District will benefit from the service they will provide,” he concluded.
