Each year the Rotary model is to change many of its officers including Club Presidents and District Governor’s.  The main purpose of this is to continue to bring fresh ideas and leadership styles into our organization.  It is cumbersome at times, but has served Rotary remarkably well for over a century.   The Immediate Past District Governor (IPDG) has the responsibility to conduct a selection process through the Nominating Committee, to select the person who will serve as District Governor (DG) for the 2020-2021 Rotary year. 
 
There are many responsibilities that go with this position but it also gives an opportunity to work with some very dedicated and hard working Rotarians in overseeing all district operations for your year, and to serve Rotary in general along with only 536 others in the world during your year.
   
Please give careful consideration to any Rotarian in your club or the district that you feel has the ability to serve in this position.  Obvious criteria are; leadership skills, ability to plan and delegate, organizational skills, good health, ability to travel and as I mentioned above, the ability to work with others.
