The Realignment Committee is recommending we remain at 9 Divisions but we are reducing the Areas from 40 to 36. We will vote on the Realignment before we vote on the elected District Officer positions. Many thanks to Realignment Committee Chair Phyllis Goldblatt, DTM and her committee for all their hard work in putting this together.

Business Meeting:
The District 83 Business Meeting is scheduled to start at 1:05pm at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, 2 Albany Street, New Brunswick, NJ on May 21st. There is no charge for attendance and is open to all members in good standing. Club Presidents & Vice Presidents of Education or those caring their proxy, need to pick up their voting ballots from the Credentials desk prior to the Business meeting. Credentials is open 8:45am to 11:30am and again at 12:50pm to 1:00pm. The proxy form and instructions are posted on the district website.

Appointed Positions:
There are many ways to step up to leadership roles outside your club. Most the positions posted on the District Website are appointed by the incoming District Director after the elections and terms start July 1st. If you're interested in a specific role, please touch base with the person currently in that role for more information. Example, this is a great time to reach out to your Area Director. You may be able to tag along on one of the Area Director's official Club Visits to get a better idea on what is expected first hand.
