Now that your first few Rotary months are out of the way, I’d like to ask you and your club members’ assistance in identifying potential candidates for our District’s 2023 – 2024 Governor.  I know that seems like a long way into the future but in order to comply with Rotary International’s Manual of Procedure, this is the required protocol.
The deadline for 2023-2024 Nominations for District Governor is December 15, 2020.
At this time - Interviews will be conducted on Jan. 16, 2021, format and location to be determined.
