We have received the following update from the project steering group
Governance across the zone will be overseen by a Regional Council elected by clubs. The Regional Council will be led by a Chair who will be supported by a Chair-Elect, with each serving two-year terms.
As Rotarians and Rotaractors of Rotary Districts participating in the Regionalisation Pilot, you will soon be able to apply for the Regional Council positions of Chair, Chair-Elect and Portfolio Leads. Only Rotaractors can apply to be the Rotaract Nominee. The role descriptions for these positions are now available on the Creating Tomorrow website.
You will receive further emails in the coming weeks about the election process and how to apply for Regional Council roles.
Once all nominations are received, we will be coming back to Club Presidents who will vote on behalf of their club to elect Regional Council positions, with the election expected to take place in October this year. This will be a critical opportunity for clubs to choose who will lead our region.
From 1 July 2024 the proposed regional model includes a new way of grouping clubs, with each group of clubs referred to as a ‘Rotary Community Group’. By working together, clubs can support each other to increase their impact, amplify Rotary’s public image, and strengthen member engagement.
Club Presidents and Secretaries will soon receive information to start club conversations about how you would like to be grouped with other clubs.
Once clubs select their Community Groups, we will then be ready to start the process of nominations and elections for Rotary Community Leaders (RCLs) to mentor and support them. If you have questions about this or want to find out more, then why not join us later
