As per Protocol 9.0, for the roles of District Director, Program Quality Director and Division Directors (Central, Eastern, Metro and Northern) where there is at least one endorsed candidate, these roles are deemed complete.

The role of Division Directors (Bass, Ranges and Southern) are deemed incomplete. No nominations were received by the closing date.

For the role of Club Growth Director, for report to be complete we require two endorsed candidates. Since there is only one endorsed candidate this role is deemed incomplete.  

As per Protocol 9.0, 4. Nomination Results, F, qualified candidates may run from the floor for any position for which the DLC did not nominate the required number of candidates. Therefore, members have the opportunity to nominate as floor candidates for the positions of Club Growth Director, Bass Division Director, Ranges Division Director and Southern Division Director.  

Eligible floor candidates shall declare their intent to run, in writing to the DLC Chair at least one (1) week prior to the annual District Council meeting being held on Saturday, 14th May, 2022.  Nominations for floor candidates, along with all required documentation should be provided to the DLC Chair by Saturday, 7th May, 2022.
