Each year Rotary Clubs have the privilege and honour of suggesting candidates for District Governor from their membership.  District 9685 and its predecessors have a great history of Rotarians, supported by their Clubs, who have stepped up to the role.
District 9685 is now calling for applications for nomination as Rotary International District Governor for the 2021-2022 Rotary year.
An applicant must be a current member of good standing of a Club in the District with at least 5 years Rotary membership as at June 2019, as well as having served as President of a Rotary Club for a full term.
It is a challenging and rewarding appointment with a structured and exciting two year training and preparation period, prior to assuming the position.
It’s your opportunity to lead and inspire Rotarians in Clubs across the District.
As an initial expression of interest, please contact, PDG Bruce Lakin, Chairman of the Nominating Committee, via email at brucelakin@teleware.com.au or mobile 0419 876073.  He will assist you by providing information about the role and the selection procedure.
You can help even if you are not intending to apply.
All Rotarians know someone who would be an excellent Governor and maybe need someone to tell them just that, so please encourage them to apply. If the response is “not just yet”, they could contact the Nominating Committee Chair to get information for the future.

1 March 2019:             Formal Application Details and Package available
