Voting for RI President: The Rotary International Bylaws state that if there are two or more eligible past directors from any zone who have indicated to the general secretary that they wish to serve as a member of the Nominating Committee for RI President, the member (and alternate) shall be elected by the clubs in the zone.
As club president, Amanda is registered to vote for the Zone 26 Member of the Nominating Committee for RI President. This ballot ends on 30 June. The vote she casts here will be the result of a vote held by our club. Because of the size of our club, we will get 2 votes. Diana will send all the information out via email this week and club members will vote via email. Diana
will keep track of all votes and tally them on behalf of the club.
