Time is getting short.  December 31 is the deadline for submission of nominations for District Governor, who will serve District 5890 in year 2014-15.  Many Rotarians don't consider themselves as potential candidates, until other Rotarians validate their efforts to make the world a better place.  So, I encourage you to think of all the outstanding Rotarians throughout the district and reach out to that special person who stands taller, works harder, and asks for nothing in return.

This year’s selection committee, headed by Lt. Governor Jon McKinnie, is striving to select the best possible candidate to lead our wonderful Rotary District for the 2014-2015 Rotary year.  Therefore, the Committee needs you and your Club’s help in soliciting and nominating qualified candidates.  The Clubs are in the best position to know who those qualified Rotarians are that would make fantastic District Governors.

The nomination form (available on the left side of this web page) must be received in its completed form by December 31, 2011 at Jon's home address (see below) or at his email address jmckinnie825@comcast.net  Please note that the Club’s candidate must be endorsed “at a regular meeting of the Club…by a majority of its members present,” and that this endorsement must be certified by the Club President and Secretary.  A listing of the qualifications is included with this letter.  Briefly, the primary criteria are: 1) membership, other than honorary, in good standing; 2) must have served as President of a Rotary Club, not necessarily of the nominating Club; 3) have been a member of one or more Rotary Clubs for seven years prior to taking office as District Governor; and 4) willingness to Serve.
It is the hope of the Nominating Committee that we will have several outstanding candidates to choose from for the position of Governor for 2014-2015.  It is up to you to make it happen. As stated above, the completed application must be received at Jon’s email address or home address below by December 31, 2011. 

Thank you in advance for helping the District Nominating Committee find District 5890’s next Governor!
