Calling All Future Governors


The nomination period for District Governor 2021-22 will be opening in September. At that time, all clubs will be encouraged to submit their nominations for their club members to lead our district. But what does being Governor entail, and how does one even become a District Governor?

To help explain these and other dark mysteries of life, District 5340 will be hosting a very special reception to connect future, past, and present District Governors with one another. 

The Future Governors Reception (originally titled, Everything You Wanted to Know About Becoming a District Governor* but the name was too long), will be held September 6, 2018 at 6:30pm at the La Jolla home of Past District Governor Janice Kurth. Address details will be shared well in advance to all registrants. It promises to be an entertaining and informative event.

Reservations are required no later than September 4th. If you have ever thought about becoming Governor, or would like to learn how the process works, this will be the place to be. To register, please contact Scott Carr, Immediate Past District Governor today!


The process for nominating a District Governor begins with the club. Club nominations for District Governor 2021-22 must be received within 60 days of the nomination period opening. Once the formal deadline is announced, no late submissions will be accepted. Submissions may be sent to or via mail to:

Rotary District 5340 Nominating Committee
2247 San Diego Avenue, Suite 236
San Diego, CA 92110

The suggestion for District Governor Nominee must be submitted in the form of 1) a completed Governor-Nominee Form, and 2) a resolution adopted at a regular meeting of the club, naming the suggested candidate (click to download sample resolution). The Club President and Secretary shall certify the resolution. A Club may suggest only one of its own members as a candidate for District Governor Nominee.
Questions? Please call us at the main District telephone number at 619-276-8279 (619-2ROTARY). And we hope to see you at the reception on September 6, 2018.
