Greetings,
 
 Thank you for your interest in the position of District Governor for Rotary District 6440 for the Rotary year July 1, 2024 – June 30, 2025.
 
Leading a Rotary District as active and vibrant as ours is an incredibly rewarding experience.  To understand the responsibilities that come with the role, we encourage you to review the summary at https://my.rotary.org/en/learning-reference/learn-role/governor.  In addition, the Rotary manual “Lead Your District: Governor” at http://bit.ly/districtgovernormanual is very useful, and there are Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced classes in Rotary’s Learning Center at rotary.org that you can also scan. You will find that any member of our Council of Governors (current governor line and all Past District Governors) will be pleased and honored to answer questions you might have.
 
The first step in the nomination process is for you to complete the District Governor Nomination Form for the year 2024-25, available at http://bit.ly/D6440GovernorNominations. This form goes first to your club for approval by its Board of Directors as evidenced by the signatures of the club president and secretary. Your club president must then forward your completed, signed, and approved application to me as a scanned PDF file by email to gov.lyle@rotary6440.org so that I receive it no later than midnight September 6, 2021. Applications will only be accepted by e-mail.
 
Please include a bio and a head shot photo for posting on the district website in the event you are the Nominating Committee’s selection for District Governor 2024-25. The district will post this announcement on the district website on September 14th.
 
The Nominating Committee is convened and chaired by me as Immediate Past District Governor and consists of past club presidents, current or past club secretaries, Past District Governors, and members-at-large, all with alternates.
 
Applicants will be interviewed on Monday evening September 13, 2021, beginning at approximately 7:00 pm. You will be notified of the exact time and instructions for your interview once all applications have been received.
 
If you have any questions regarding the process, please feel free to contact me.  We look forward to having you take the next step in your Rotary journey. 
 
 
Lyle
