Rotary Clubs in District 5770 are invited to submit suggestions to the district nominating committee for Rotarians to be considered for nomination as governor for 2017-18. As outlined in the district manual of procedure, the nominating committee is comprised of past governors, and chaired by the immediate past district governor.
Suggestions, represented by a completed Form H (Governor Nominee Data Form), will be accepted by the nominating committee until December 20, 2014. The committee will convene in January to consider those Rotarians who may be interested and qualified to serve as governor in 2017-18. Interviews of potential nominees will be conducted by the committee.
Rotarians must meet the following minimum qualifications: be a member in good standing of a club within the district; have served as club president for a full term; demonstrate a willingness, commitment, and ability to fulfill the duties of governor; and demonstrate knowledge of the qualifications, duties, and responsibilities of governor. Explanation of the qualifications, responsibilities, expectations, and official procedures may be found in the Rotary International Manual of Procedure, or online at rotary.org in the RI Manual of Procedure, RI Constitution, and RI Bylaws.
On or before December 20, 2014, Rotary Clubs should forward their suggestions (along with a completed “Form H”), to PDG Terry Godfrey, 37194 County Street 2650 Anadarko, OK 73005, or via email to email@example.com .

RI President Ron Burton and Governor Terry Godfrey are asking all District 5770 Rotary Clubs to take advantage of a new program called Rotary Club Central. The program assists Rotary clubs to plan and track service projects -- from beginning to end. President Burton challenges D5770 clubs to be the first district to accomplish 100% participation of all clubs. Clubs will be contacted in the near future about using this program to Engage Rotary and Change Lives.
It may seem early, but NOW IS THE TIME TO START RECRUITING OUTBOUND ROTARY YOUTH EXCHANGE STUDENTS FOR THE 2014-15 SCHOOL YEAR.
The Rotary Youth Exchange Program does not happen without your club's support. Rotary clubs are asked to recruit students in their communities. Suggested recruitment sources are school langauge teachers, Interact, RYLA, church groups, news promotions and your own club or family contacts.
In order to obtain exchanges for your long term outbound students ages 15 1/2 to 18 1/2 , the district interview process has been moved to November from January as it has been in the past. Long Term Applications are due to the district no later than Oct 30,2013.
There are also some short term exchanges that occur during the summer. One month of family to family visiting between and exchange student and a foreign host family with a student. These exchanges are from ages 14-19.
Details about the Youth Exchange program are found in the left column of this page. Under SITE PAGES, click on the ROTARY YOUTH EXCHANGE link.
If you would like to have a club program on Youth Exchange, or need posters to put up at schools, or need more information about the program itself. Please contact Jaci Williams at firstname.lastname@example.org or Russ Davoren email@example.com
