DG Nominee Nominations
District 5360 Rotarians,
At this time each year our Rotary District starts the process of recruiting, selecting and affirming our District Governor (DG) for 3 years hence – this year we will be electing a DG for the 2023-2024 Rotary year.
The District has a DG Nominee Nominating Committee comprised of past and future district governors that will make their recommendation to the membership at the District’s Annual General Meeting to be held next May at the 2021 District Conference in Drumheller, AB.
While the Nominating Committee has a role to play in assembling a slate of candidates, we want to ensure that all Rotarians in the District are aware that the process is currently under way and that any Rotarian in good standing in District 5360 can put forward a nomination to the Nominating Committee - we value everyone’s input. With this in mind you may be aware of individuals who you know would make a great DG .You may have also thought about the possibility of becoming a DG, but did not know enough about the role and responsibilities or assumed that you were not qualified to take it on. It is a great opportunity to learn more about Rotary, meet the wonderful folks we have in the District and beyond and hear about the great things that are being done across the globe, in our communities and in ourselves.
Please give the matter some serious thought over the next few weeks and feel free to contact any of the nominating committee members to chat about any questions, comments or concerns you may have.
A new simplified nomination form is available HERE or you can request an electronic copy via a quick email to rwistead@telus.net.
The roles, responsibilities and expectations of our District 5360 District Governor are available HERE.
Please ensure all applications are submitted to Rick Istead by October 1st so that your DG Nominee Nominating Committee can begin to work through the process towards identifying and selecting our 2023-2024 District Governor.
Thanking you in advance for your support.
Yours in Rotary,
Rick Istead
