About the DEC
The District Executive Committee, commonly referred to as the “DEC,” consists of the following voting members:
- District Governor
- Lieutenant Governor Education & Training (LGET)
- Lieutenant Governor Marketing (LGM)
- Immediate Past District Governor (IPDG)
- Public Relations Officer (PRO)
- All Division Governors
- All Area Governors
The District 55 DEC also has a non-voting set of staff participants who are invited to DEC meetings. They can be found on the Contacts Page. The District Governor may invite others to attend DEC meetings who have business to conduct. DEC meeting attendance is by District Governor invitation only – no others may attend.
DEC meetings are held at least four times a year and are chaired by the District Governor. The DEC is charged with reviewing and approving the District Success Plan, preparing a budget, overseeing the financial operation of the District, recommending the assignment of clubs to Areas and Divisions, and reviewing recommendations/reports of district committees (including the audit committee)
