RYLA Registration Goes Electronic!
January 8-10, 2016
This year registration for RYLA is an online, electronic process to ease the job of the registrar.   Club commitments need to be made online and the Junior Participants will complete an online registration form once their sponsor club has selected and named their sponsored students. It is the responsibility of each club’s RYLA chair to help their students with this process.
A Rotary volunteer form is also online so that Rotarians, Rotaractors, and non-Rotary volunteers can register to participate in RYLA 2016.  
Go to the month of January 2016 in the calendar of events on the District website and you can easily link to the event registration on the correct dates.
Thank you for your cooperation!

The current Governor succession is as follows:

2018-2019 to be determined
The application period for District Governor for the Rotary Year 2018-2019 is now open and will remain so through December 31, 2015.
Candidate Qualifications
For the purpose of complying with Article 13 (13.020), of the Bylaws of Rotary International in selecting a District Governor-Nominee a district nominating committee procedure shall be used.  The qualifications of candidates for District Governor-Nominee shall be as set out in Article 15 (15.070) of the Bylaws of Rotary International.  A candidate shall be selected by a nominating committee procedure in accordance with Article 13 (13.010) of the Bylaws of Rotary International.
Nominating Committee
The Nominating Committee shall consist of the immediate Past District Governor, who shall serve as the chairperson of the committee, plus one (1) Rotarian from each area of the district represented by an Assistant Governor.  These members shall be active members of a club in the district and shall be well-informed about Rotary and Rotarians in the district.  In order to help insure that they are well informed, they shall have served a full term as a club president prior to their service on the committee.  Additionally, they should be active at the district level as evidenced by their attendance at three (3) of the (5) five district conferences immediately preceding their service on the committee.
Qualification Interview
The committee may request that those individuals proposed by clubs to serve as District Governor-Nominee be present at a meeting of the committee to be interviewed concerning their qualifications for the position.  Current plans are for the Nominating Committee to interview qualified candidates following the District Mid-Year Meeting in Woodville on February 6, 2016
Clubs are encouraged to nominate individuals to serve as District Governor nominee.  To nominate a candidate, fill out the attached Governor-nominee Data Form, signed by the candidate and endorsed by the secretary of the candidate’s home club.  In addition, the candidates, themselves, should submit a 1-2 page summary of their leadership and Rotary experiences, and other reasons why they feel they are a particularly strong candidate for office.  A 1-2 page statement may not afford a full listing of the candidate’s qualifications, but further opportunity to share such information will be provided during the interview process.
Send the Governor-nominee Data Form and 1-2 page leadership bio/statement to:
DG Doris A. Lockey
308 Harbor Circle
Montgomery, Texas  77356
Submission deadline:  All nomination forms and statements must be postmarked by December 31, 2015.
I would suggest that anyone considering submitting themselves for nomination should seek the counsel of a Past District Governor to discuss the rewards, challenges and responsibilities that are involved with the position.  Consideration of such matters will help prepare the candidate for the interview process and, ultimately, for service as District Governor.

RI President K.R. Ravindran and his wife, Vanathy


RI President-elect K.R. Ravindran introduced a member benefits program at the 9 June closing session of the 2015 Rotary International Convention, saying that many more hands are needed to continue Rotary’s work around the world.

The program, , aims to boost membership and enhance member satisfaction. It will debut on 1 July.

“This innovative new program will allow Rotary members to connect with hundreds of businesses and service providers from around the world -- and that number is growing,” said Ravindran. “These establishments will offer Rotarians discounts and concessions on the everyday business that you do. And, in many cases, not only will you benefit, but our Foundation will as well, by receiving a contribution with each transaction.”

The program will include discounts on car rentals, hotels, dining, and entertainment. Discounts on more products and services from companies worldwide are expected to be added throughout the year.

“It will be another way to benefit from being a Rotarian and being part of the Rotary network,” said Ravindran, whose presidential theme for 2015-16 is Be a Gift to the World. “I urge all of you to become a part of that scheme.”
