WEEK 24 - DECEMBER 11
TURNBULL NOMINATED TO SERVE AS DISTRICT GOVERNOR 2020-2021
This will serve as official notice that Richard Turnbull, from Rotary Club of Coastal St. Johns, has been nominated by the District Nominating Committee to serve as District Governor during the 2020-2021 Rotary year.
As stated in the Rotary International Manual of Procedures (2016) Article 14.020, Nominating Procedure of Governor Nominee and the District 6970 By-Laws/Policies/Procedures, any club that submitted a candidate for this position within the stated procedures has 15 days from this date, December 11, 2017, to put forth that candidate and submit his/her name to the District Nominating Committee.
After that time, if no other candidates have been submitted, Richard Turnbull will officially become our District Governor Designate.
I would like to thank PDG Dave Faraldo, who chaired our Nominating Committee, and the members of the Nominating Committee for their dedicated service. Because we have many well qualified leaders in our District, this is a very difficult task requiring intense deliberation. The selection process is extremely important and I know they did their best to make sure our District is in good hands.
Please keep PDG Russ Miller and his family in your thoughts and prayers as they mourn the loss of his sister Geraldine "Gerry" Galligan.
Thank you for your support!
