Dear All Rotarians,
My whole hearted gratitude that you have honoured me with this once in a whole life opportunity to serve District 3450 as your District Governor.
Time runs in an eye-blink glimpse that it now comes to the closing time of the Governorship of 2018-19.
I would like to refer to the attached final DG Newsletter which has outlined
Two major accomplishments our Rotarians have achieved among many many; namely the net membership gain at about 340 and Rotary Foundation Donation at 1.4 million USD.
The Newsletter also highlighted one District task needed to be completed in the coming Rotary Year, The DGND Selection Issue.
Rotarians need to note that the newest set of RI Bylaws dated 1st July 2019 has made clear by clauses 12.040 and 12.050 that if Club Ballot, which has already failed to be passed by club voting in District Conference, were to be adopted as the selection method for future Governor replacing District Nominating Committee at all, then the Governor Candidates to be selected by club Ballot also come from Clubs’ suggestion.
RI also made clear earlier that the checking of the qualifications of Governor Candidates can only be according to those qualifications defined in RI Bylaws no more and no less. We may take particular reference to 16.010.
Furthermore, concerning the RI Policies of the 3 years membership restriction in District Nominating Committee counting from RY 2016-17, RI clarified that the composition and Terms of Reference of our current District Nominating Committee have to be settled by either a District Legislation Meeting or by the club’s Ballot method before our incoming DG can convene the District Nominating Committee in the RY 2019-20.
Rotary is a never ending continuation irrespective of the turnover of a Rotary Year.
With RI clarifications, let’s support our incoming DG Wilson’s endeavour in leading D3450 to follow up the DGND Selection issues, and to sustain the growth of our D3450 with respect to the Strategic Focus from RI.
In Your Clubs and Our District
Service ABOVE Self,
NOT About Self.
All The Best to every Rotarian and every Rotaractor!
Best from our heart,
DG YC & Linda.
