The District 7120 Nominating Committee is now accepting nominations for District Governor for the Rotary Year 2023-2034.  Are you an experienced Rotarian, with interests in getting deeper into the operation of our district?  Do you have leadership skills, perhaps underutilized, and needing to be exercised?  Can you assemble and lead a team of like-minded, enthusiastic people?
If so, please consider applying.  Else, look around your club, your Rotary Area, and our Rotary District.  Who have you noticed with the skills needed to lead our district into the next decade of the twenty-first century?  Who would you like to see leading District 7120, in a few years?
Reach out, ask a few questions, some people, very qualified people, only need a little “push” to consider accepting the rewarding challenge of helping lead a Rotary District to discover and demonstrate its potential for “Service Above Self”.
