Frequently Asked Questions:
How was the President chosen?
Each district had a DGE and DGN when we started planning. The DGN names were randomly selected to lead in 24-25, 25-26, and 26-27.
Since then some changes have taken place and we are now embarking on the nominating process for 25-26
Why President instead of District Governor?
Given the size of the region, decisions will be made by a board of directors. Commonly, a BOD has a president, so we stuck with that title. As far as Rotary International is concerned, our President is the District Governor.
Will there be Assistant Governors?
Yes, but we have changed their names to Area Representatives. Area Representatives will primarily be responsible for bringing club needs & concerns to the board of directors.
How do Rotarians stay informed about what is happening?
There should be an article in your monthly district newsletter letting members know how things are moving along.
We will also be hosting a number of Town Hall style events where any member can come and ask questions, express concerns or volunteer to be more involved.
How do I get involved?
Simply go to our contact form and let us know how you’d like to participate. We welcome as many people as possible to get involved.
Why all the changes?
We are trying some new things. We also value our traditions.
Perhaps President instead of District Governor will help us be more relatable to those not in Rotary.
Having a board of directors will open the President position to more qualified candidates that may not have the time or ability to visit every club, or participate in other traditional DG activities. Spreading out the responsibilities of running a region this size will make it more manageable for everyone.
