LEADERSHIP ROLES AND OPPORTUNITIES

District committees are charged with carrying out the goals of the District as formulated by the District Governor with the advice of the members of District Council.  All District committees report to District Council, some directly report through the District Governor, others report through a District Director.  District committees exist for the purpose of supporting the initiatives of the clubs in District 7090 in concert with Rotary International.    
 
In the menu to the left, are specific position descriptions for D7090 leadership opportunities.  All District Rotarians are encouraged to participate in a committee prior to assuming leadership, but depending on the role, it may not be required.  To participate in a committee, please contact its chair or the director the committee reports to, an AG, or one of the District executives, DG, DGE, DGN.  All D7090 leaders are identified and are accessible through the organization chart on the home page.  
 
To discover more about what each committee does, click on District Committees and under District Operations - District Council, in the header menu on the home page, both of which have a wealth of information.  The MOPP is very detailed and is found on the District Operations - District Council page.  
 
All the District leadership encourage you to leverage your strengths in working in this context and we welcome you to join us in leading the District.
