If no challenge to this result is received by me as the Governor on or before 11th March 2019 this Selection result will be final and conclusive. 
By then another announcement will be issued accordingly. 
Please join me to congratulate Past President Keith Chow.

Dear All Members,


May I draw your attention that I have just received an important RI message concerning the District Nominating Committee. As the District Governor, I owe the duty to let everyone of our District know this RI message, and to ensure that our District follows this RI decision. 

The RI’s message is:

1.  The Board ( here it means RI Board of Directors) expects all district to follow all policies in the Code of Policies, which includes 17.040.2.

2.    Regarding the 3-year restriction, it is up to the district on when to start the counting, but provided that it cannot be later than the year the policy was announced, which will be Rotary year 2016-17.

This policy does not affect the current year concerning District Nominating Committee members counting from Rotary Year 2016-17 .

However it is the next Rotary Year 2019-20 that it will then encounter the problem of not admitting those that have been members of District Nominating Committee for already 3 one-years term since Rotary Year 2016-17. 

Hence, for helping to follow this 3 years restriction in the coming Rotary Year and further; and with respect to the RI Bylaws that any District Resolution that governs District Nominating Committee for selecting future DG has to be passed in District Conference,(RI Bylaws sections 14.020.2) which then dictates that this upcoming District Conference will be the last one before entering the coming Rotary Year when the Nominating Committee will have to function before another District Conference habitually to be held around the end of the Rotary Year; I would like to provide to DGE Wilson the upcoming District Conference as the platform to handle this matter; and invite DGE Wilson to propose for our consideration the necessary amendments to the current District Resolution RC/1-2014 so that the District Nominating Committee will be running in accordance with this 3 years restriction in the coming Rotary Year onwards. 

It is hoped that Rotarians can make the best use of this upcoming District Conference to pass the necessary amendments to the District Resolution that will then steer our future District Nominating Committee compliant with this RI Policy. 

Thank you for all of your attention. 

Best from Heart,

RD 3450
