THE ROTARY DISTRICT
District 6380 is a growing organization of about 52 clubs located in SW Ontario and SE Michigan. A Rotary district is a geographical territory in which Rotary clubs are associated for Rotary International administrative purposes. Each district is headed by a district governor, an officer of Rotary International, whose job is to assist clubs in the district. District governors are nominated by their districts, usually at the district conference, and elected for one-year terms at the Rotary International Convention. The district conference is an annual meeting of Rotarians of the district which furthers fellowship and discussion of the affairs of clubs and Rotary International generally.
Zones are subdivisions established by Rotary International to facilitate administration of over 500 districts located in 166 countries of the world. Zone 29 is made up of SW Ontario, Maryland, Michigan, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and part of West Virginia. The zone structure is used in the nomination of the Rotary International President and Directors.
