It is my pleasure to announce that on December 10th the District Nominating Committee met and selected Kirk Driskell from the Rotary Club of Alpharetta as our District Governor Nominee Designate, to serve as Governor in 2020/2021.
Kirk was president of the Alpharetta Club in 2015/2016. He served as District Service Chair in 2016/2017 and is presently serving as an Assistant Governor. During Kirk’s year as president, Alpharetta won a number of awards, including Best Club and Best Membership Growth; Kirk himself won the Sheffield Award, which recognizes the top president in each of the four club categories for that year. Kirk grew up in the Alpharetta club, where his father Ken was a charter member and past president. Continuing the family tradition, his daughter Cambri recently launched an Interact Club at Kings Ridge Christian School with close to 50 of her peers.
Professionally Kirk is an entrepreneur, having established or acquired and managed successful business in real estate, dog breeding, and auto services. Beyond his family and his faith, his true passion in life is helping others, especially men struggling with addiction. All who know him say Kirk is a remarkable man who truly walks his talk.
Kirk is married to Deena and they have three children, Cambri (15), Knox (13) and Knowlton (10).
Please join me in extending your warm congratulations to Kirk (firstname.lastname@example.org), as well as our thanks to him (and Deena) for their willingness to step up and serve our clubs as Governor.
Please note I am required to point out the following provisions from our resolutions:
“Nothing in this resolution shall be construed as forbidding nominations from the floor of the district conference. A club intending to nominate from the floor at the District Conference shall, no later than 60 days before the conference, be required to:
- Notify the district governor in writing of its intention.
- Submit the name of the candidate, and
- Submit all documentation required as though the candidate had been initially submitted for consideration by the nominating committee.
If, in accordance with this paragraph, the District Governor receives no nominations from the clubs, then the District Governor Nominee Designate shall be declared the District Governor Nominee at the district conference.”
