DG Nominations
It is that time of year again when, together, we have the important task of selecting a new Governor Nominee to take office in the District for the year 2020-2021.
 
A Nominating Committee of past and future governors has been appointed by the District Board to make their recommendation for the 2020-2021 Governor to the membership at the District's 2017-18 Annual General Meeting  (AGM) which will be held at the District Conference in Calgary in May 2018.
 
At this time the Nominating Committee is assembling a slate of candidates which will form the pool for their consideration.  We are asking Clubs to determine whether or not they have a good candidate in their midst and to consider putting this individual forward to the Nominating Committee. The deadline for submission of completed applications is October 1, 2017.  Nomination Form.
Please submit the nomination to PDG Garth Toombs
 
As well as following the rules of choosing candidates as set out by Rotary International, we are also bound by the Bylaws established to govern our District by Industry Canada.  Where there is a conflict, the Bylaws of Industry Canada prevail.  The only significant point of difference is that a club, by resolution of the Club membership, can present an alternate candidate for District Governor at the AGM.  When this happens there will be a vote.  If no other candidates are presented by clubs, the nomination presented by the District Nominating Committee will be Acclaimed.  Candidates presented by clubs must be submitted to the District Secretary at least 14 days ahead of the AGM to allow for information to be put together about the candidate for the membership.  
 
Click to review the Bylaws of Rotary District 5360 Inc..  Refer to Number 7 and in particular 7(e).
 
An application form for Candidates being proposed must be received by email by October 1.   RI specifies the qualifications of Rotarians nominated for DG in Bylaws of Rotary International item 15.070.
Key points include:
A proposed Rotarian must have been a member for 7 years.
Must have served as a Club President.
The nominee must be approved by the Club’s membership and must agree to stand.
There are several other qualifications which can be reviewed in the District Bylaws mentioned above as well as by reviewing the Bylaws of Rotary International as mentioned above.
 
Please note: The RI bylaws prohibit any effort by a candidate, a candidate’s supporter, or any Rotarian to influence the selection process in a positive or negative manner, including but not limited to campaigning or canvassing.  Our District Secretary will supply information on all nominees to voting members of the District.
 
We look forward to receiving your candidates for consideration by the Nominating Committee; there are many well qualified Rotarians who would do an excellent job as DG.
