LGET Ritchie,
1) Will be there one LGET and LGM position or two positions due to reformation plan?

2) Will Area Governor be elected at Area Council or at District Council meetings?

3) For Division Governor positions, will there be new Divisions added, hence new Division Governor positions or same number of Divisions for next term as this term.

SL Hello there!
~There will be 02 posn for LGM & LGET if the reformation plan goes as plan which will be tabled by the Board members this Feb 14th.
(although there may be challenges due to some inactive and weak clubs)

~ AG will be elected at their respective area council meeting.

~ SO far it looks like there may be 3 new divisions at most but again depending on how they perform at the April renewals.

Keep well...Look forward seeing you in Kuching!
