Just to say that Sweden is not in Zone 17 so Ann-Britt Asebol cannot be in Zone 17. also Zone 19 does not include Scotland thus James Anthony Black cannot be in Zone 19!

O malogrado Sam Owori era do Uganda. Algum motivo para não haver nenhum africano nessa lista? Só vejo senão um falante de português (Brasil). Quais os critérios?

How many Rotarians of color are on the RI Presidential path?  I am surprised that we do not have a member of the Nominating Committee who is from the continent of Africa!

I wish the committee a successful nomination. It would have been right for an African to be on the list.
