Nominations sought for district governor 2020-21

Please open the two attachments and consider who in our Rotary district would be an excellent candidate for district governor in 2020-2021. Nominations must be submitted on or before July 31, 2017, as described in the first attachment (“Call for District Governor Nominations”).
Assistant Governors may have recommendations which can be submitted by the club to which the recommended Rotarian belongs -- or by the AG’s own club (provided the nominee’s club concurs).
If Rotarians are unsure about whether they would like to be considered for leadership as district governor, any of the past, present, future governors in our district would be very pleased to answer questions.
Note that all candidates who are nominated will be interviewed during the month of September  2017.

In order to qualify to apply for Rotary Foundation grants during the 2017-18 Rotary Year, a club must have 2 members attend a Grant Management Seminar during the current Rotary year that ends on June 30. One training session was given at the District Conference in Yuma. One webinar remains:
Guided by the findings, six focus groups with women in rural communities, this Community and Economic Development project  trained 35 women of child-bearing age from four Ugandan communities in Empowerment skills. Topics such as: Disease Prevention, Gender Issues, Computers and Business Development on the Internet, Education for Female as well as Male, Antenatal Health, Genito-Urinary Fistulas, and Strategic Planning for Community Development of Village Businesses, Domestic Violence, Micro-Credits, Social Justice, and Solar Power were a few that took place.This opened up discussions and ideas that would be taken back to their villages as well as neighboring villages. "spreading the information"
During the Rotary Family Health Days April 28-30th, the trainees designed and staffed "Women's Interests" booths providing information and referrals to women from rural villages on health, education, domestic violence, business development, and social justice.
