Rotary International requires that the person nominated will follow a two-year process of training and preparation before assuming the role of District Governor.
During the 2015-2016 Rotary year, the selected individual will be the District Governor Nominee (DGN). This role includes observation and training, and participation at District events. It also includes participation at the Rotary Zone 30-31 training institute in September or October 2015, the All-Ohio Presidents-Elect Training Seminar in March 2016, and participating as a non-voting member of key district committees.
During the 2016-2017 Rotary year, the selected individual will be the District Governor-Elect (DGE). The official election will take place at the 2015 District Conference.
Training and observation activities continue, including participation at the Zone training institute in September or October 2016, and at the Rotary International Assembly (an assembly and training program for District Governors- Elect from all 537 Rotary Districts in the world) in San Diego in January 2017.
