PDG Dave Johnson has issued the “call for applications” for the open District Governor Nominee-Designate (DGN-D) position, which will determine the governor for our district during the 2017-18 Rotary year.
The current Governor succession is as follows:
2014-15 Don Taylor – Rotary Club of Liberty
2015-16 Doris Lockey – Rotary Club of Lake Conroe
2016-17 Gig Langston – Rotary Club of Angelina (Lufkin)
2017-18 to be determined
The application period for District Governor for the Rotary Year 2017-18 is now open and will remain so through January 31, 2015.
As a reminder, a committee – consisting of DG Don Taylor, PDG Brenda Walker, PDG Dave Johnson, DGE Doris Lockey, DGN Gig Langston, and others will interview each of the qualified candidates and make the selection for confirmation at the 5910 District MidYear meeting February 7, 2015, or, if necessary, through an e-mail process.
To nominate a candidate, fill out the attached application form, signed by the candidate and endorsed by the secretary of the candidate’s home club. I would also like for the candidates, themselves, to submit a 1-2 page summary of their leadership and Rotary experiences, and other reasons why they feel they are a particularly strong candidate for office. A 1-2 page statement may not afford a full listing of the candidate’s qualifications, but further opportunity to share such information will be provided during the interview process.
Links are available on the district website that address qualifications, duties, etc. Send the Governor-nominee Form and 1-2 page leadership bio/statement to:
DG Don Taylor
Rotary District 5910
1124 CR 2368
Liberty, TX 77575
Submission deadline: All nomination forms and statements must be postmarked (or emailed) by January 31, 2015.
I would suggest that anyone considering submitting themselves for nomination should seek the counsel of a Past District Governor to discuss the rewards, challenges and responsibilities that are involved with the position. Consideration of such matters will help prepare the candidate for the interview process and, ultimately, for service as District Governor.
Any questions can be referred to me (Dave Johnson) at: (979) 775-3587 or (979) 219-4499 (cell)
Thank you for being part of the process that will ensure strong leadership for our district in the years ahead.
