District Governor Training Seminar November 14 and 15, 2014
District Governors have their own breakout sessions on Friday and Saturday to address the concerns of currently serving District Governors. Guests at the Friday session will be Rotary International Director, Steve Snyder; Ravi Ravindran RI President 2015-16; and a Trustee from the Rotary Foundation. Our guests will discuss current activities in Evanston; what to look forward to; and, more importantly, answer questions from District Governors. The second Friday session will have an open agenda where District Governors and their peers can discuss topics of mutual interest; problems/concerns in their Districts; or just reassurance that their situations are not unique. No topic will be off limits.
The Saturday morning breakout session will focus on membership. District Governors Elect and Nominee are invited to attend. This will be interactive session where the District Governor line can interact with other Districts to discuss what works and what doesn’t.
