So, you are thinking about running for a District Office? Congratulations! But, not sure what to do, no worries we will figure it out together. Nominations will be held for the following positions; Division Directors, District Public Relations Manager, District Club Growth Director, District Program Quality Director and District Director. Anyone that is qualified can apply for any position. The first important date that you need to remember is 15 December. This is the deadline to declare your intent to run for a position. Once you have filled in and submitted the appropriate paperwork, just sit back, hold tight and enjoy Christmas. You will be contacted by the District Leadership Committee (DLC) Chair with a couple of dates/times where you will have (2) interviews with individuals on the DLC. These questions will determine your knowledge regarding the position you are applying and to ensure you have a good understanding of what the role involves. Then all you can do is wait until April 2019, when the list of nominated candidates is announced. If, unfortunately, you are unsuccessful in becoming a nominated candidate, you still can declare yourself as a floor candidate after the results are released. You will be guided along the way so why not consider this opportunity to serve others? Who knows, you might be the next Division Director or a member of the District Leadership Team. One Two Three…. Declare!
