Assistant Governors

Assistant Governors (AGs) are appointed annually by the District Governor to serve at the district level for a maximum term of three years. AGs have the responsibility of assisting the governor with the administration of their assigned clubs within their clusters and helping them to reach district goals. They should:

  • Meet with and assist the incoming presidents before the beginning of the Rotary year to review the Club Leadership Plan, discuss club goals and review Rotary Club Central.
  • Visit each club regularly, preferably monthly, with a minimum of one visit each quarter of the Rotary year. Build relationships with the clubs as friend, supporter and resource.
  • Help plan joint club projects and promote inter club social and fellowship programs. AGs are encouraged to have quarterly gatherings of Presidents and Club officers.
  • Attend club fund-raisers and projects, inaugurations and events.
  • Keep the governor informed of the progress of the clubs, suggesting ways to enhance Rotary development and addressing problems.
  • Assist the governor elect with the selection of district committees.
  • Work to ensure that club presidents, officers, and members come to relevant district training and seminars and promote the district conference.
  • Come to district leadership and AG training, PETS, district assembly, district conference and all other relevant Rotary events.
  • Meet deadlines for District and RI reports and respond promptly to requests from RI and District officers.
  • Be enthusiastic about Rotary, have fun and be ready to continue to serve “Beyond the club level.”
