Election of PDG Guz Goh as ROSNF Chair-Elect 2014-15

I am delighted to announce that your ROSNF Board has unanimously supported the selection of PDG Guz Goh as your ROSNF Chair-Elect 2014-15, to take office as ROSNF Chair 2015-16. Guz was the sole nominee when nominations for the position closed earlier this month.

As a consequence of Guz’ selection, I have appointed him as a ROSNF Director with immediate effect for the remainder of the current Rotary year.

Congratulations PDG Guz! #ROSNF will be in excellent hands in 2015-16.
