The Role of the District Governor

District governors provide leadership, motivation, and guidance to Rotary clubs under the general supervision of the RI Board of Directors. Governors act as officers of RI, fostering achievement in their district at the club level.

Districts nominate governors 24-36 months before the governors take office.

Governors-nominee are elected at the RI Convention and serve as governors-elect for 12 months prior to taking office.


During their term of service, governors:

  • Strengthen existing Rotary clubs, organize new clubs, and promote membership growth
  • Issue a monthly letter to each club president and secretary in the district
  • Support The Rotary Foundation and serve as a district and RI spokesperson, when appropriate
  • Hold a district conference and other district meetings
  • Ensure that district nominations and elections are conducted in accordance with the RI Constitution and Bylaws and established policies of RI

Visiting clubs

Each year, governors visit every Rotary club in the district to draw attention to important Rotary issues and provide special attention to weak or struggling clubs. The purpose of these visits is also to motivate Rotarians to participate in service activities and to personally recognize the outstanding contributions of Rotarians in the district. Visits may be conducted individually or with several clubs at the same time.
