The following proposal is presented to update our Policies to be in line with the Suggested District Policies as adopted by the International Board of Directors March of 2018 by correcting the composition and phrasing of what constitutes a District Officer and adding the position of Assistant Governor to the District Officers. This simplifies the definition of District Officer and allows for a more balanced viewpoint from the Committees within the District, as well as a means for delegation of duties between the Governor and Committees of the District.
Section 1. District Board of Directors
The District Board of Directors shall administer the business of the District and ensure the implementation of these policies. The District Board of Directors shall consist of the District Officers, the two (2) most immediate and available Past Governors,
the Lieutenant Governors, and the Presidents of each Club in the District. A JOOI Governor, if available, shall serve as a non-voting member on the District Board of Directors.

Section 3. District Executive Committee
- B. The District Executive Committee shall consist of the District Officers,

(As well as the addition of the words “Assistant Governors” as is consistent with the position within these policies)
