We Belong to District 1390
In Finland we have five Rotary districts which, in addition to Finland, also include Estonia. Each district is headed by a district governor.
The Governor 2019-2020 of our own district D1390 is DG Eija Hatakka-Peltonen from Akaa.
The Governor is supported by the district council, committees and assistant governors from various regions of the district. The clubs propose new governors, and the district’s nomination committee chooses the candidate deemed most suitable from among the governor candidates. The Governor-elect is nominated at the Convention of Rotary International.
The district organizes several events for the clubs during the Rotary year. The most important of these is the Presidents-Elect Training Seminar (PETS).
The district assembly is usually held in the autumn and the festive district conference in the spring.
The district governor visits all the clubs in his district during his term. The assistant governors visit the clubs in their own regions. The assistant governor of Suomenselkä area is AG Irja Rissanen.
