District Governor Nominations

Nominations for the next District Governor selected (2025-26) in April are now being accepted.  One of the minimum requirements to serve as DG is the individual has to be a Past Club President.  
Who do you know in your Club or your network within the District that would be a good candidate? Please take some time to think about those Past Presidents you know. Perhaps yourself or other Rotarians throughout the District with a strong passion for Rotary and good leadership skills. 
The deadline for applications to be submitted is March 28, 2022. Interviews will be held in April. The individual chosen will join the current DG lineup as District Governor Nominee Designate on July 1.

Around the District
4-Way Test Speech Contest
Our District is hosting the 4-Way Test Speech Contest.  Due to the continued presence of Covid-19 in our communities, we are providing a virtual only platform for the contest in 2022. 
Impact of Cyclone Ana on our friends in Malawi
Our Rotary District had a Group Study Exchange with D9210 in Southern Africa last Autumn.  One of the countries in that district is Malawi. One of the members of their GSE team who visited us is Eveline Sibindi van Dam; currently the President of the Lilongwe-Lingadzi Rotary Club. 
Our outbound team visited the area mentioned in the attached articles.  There are two Rotary Clubs in the affected area of Malawi; Blantyre RC and Blantyre-Limbe RC.  The people in the affected villages are some of the poorest people in the world and this disaster has destroyed what little that they had.  The Rotary Clubs of Malawi are requesting our help. I summarized the following from the attached letter.
Annual Fund Rotary Direct Points Match
District 6040 is offering a points match of 100 Paul Harris Fellow points for any Rotarian who isn’t yet signed up for Rotary Direct to sign up for Rotary Direct between January 1 and May 31, 2022 and contribute at least $100 towards the Annual Fund during this period. All Rotarians in District 6040 who sign up as new participants in Rotary Direct and contribute at least $100 towards The Annual Fund of The Rotary Foundation between 1/1/22 and 5/31/22 will earn 100 bonus Paul Harris Fellow Points.
In June, the RI Board of Directors strengthened its commitment to making diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) a part of all aspects of Rotary’s culture. That commitment includes evolving our approach to leading, motivating, guiding, and governing our clubs. You have the opportunity to help our members develop the skills they need to embrace all facets of diversity. You can ensure that everyone is included in our efforts to take action to create change. And you can promote equity so that every person who engages with us has access to the resources, opportunities, networks, and support they need to thrive.
