Dear District Governors Elect,

Dear District Governors Nominee,

A journey full of exciting moments, joy, and enthusiasm, but also in certain cases with obstacles to be overpassed is starting for you.

Being selected as Governor of your District is more than an honorary title. The Governor shall inspire, motivate, and ensure continuity in the district.

You have been selected by your districts because you have proven strong leadership skills and decision-making. During your year in office, clubs will look to you for leadership, support, and motivation as they carry out service projects and participate in Rotary programs.

Through intensive training at the GETS/GNTS, you will be prepared to serve in the office of the district governor.

Moreover, you will get acquainted with the district leaders that will serve at the same time as you and have the opportunity to enjoy great fellowship events in beautiful Limassol.

The training leaders for Zone 21, Christina Covotsou-Patroclou, Yesim Yonay, The General Trainer Mykola Stebljanko,  and the training team are working hard to offer an exciting, thorough orientation including interactive plenary and breakout sessions. The knowledge and the documentation offered will be a resource for you as you can refer to it, to remember the great ideas and best practices that you learned and want to apply in your district during your year as governor.

We strongly encourage you to also attend our Zone 21 Institute, a unique opportunity to enlarge your Rotary horizons and imagine the future of Rotary in our region.
