The District Nominating Committee announces that nominations for the positions of District Governor (2016-17) and member of the District Budget and Finance Committee (Area B: A member of a Rotary Club in York or Oxford Counties, ME) may be submitted.  All nominations must be received by the District Governor by January 10, 2014.  
Qualifications for Governor-nominee include:  
  • be a Rotarian in good standing as a member of a functioning Rotary Club in District 7780
  • have served a full term as president of a Rotary Club
  • demonstrate willingness, commitment, and ability to fulfill the duties and responsibilities of governor.
Qualifications for member of  the Budget and Finance committee (three-year term) include:

Serving on the B&F committee is an excellent opportunity to be involved with other district leaders to help oversee the fiscal responsibilities of our district.  The committee is comprised of the three immediate past district governors, governor, governor-elect, treasurer, and three additional members who each serve for three-year terms.    

Serving as governor for our district is a great honor and responsibility.  Clearly, a passion for Rotary and an ability for leadership are of primary importance.  The opportunities that accompany this role are incredible; the opportunity to work with Rotarians who want to make a difference in their communities and internationally, the opportunity to meet Rotarians from all over the world, the opportunity to help clubs and individuals grow and develop their potential for service.  If you are interested in knowing more about the expectations of governor, call one of our past governors and have a conversation.  We need good leaders in Rotary - could that be you?

Application forms for governor-elect and budget committee are on the district website.  For more information, contact Brad Jett, Chair of the Nominating Committee.
