Your Nominee

Thank you for taking the time to nominate a candidate for the Field Podcaster position. Our goal is to collect Rotary stories and help launch them in a new carrier. They are paid as an independent contractor for the work they submit.

The Form

Before we get started we want you to be comfortable with the form and the process.

  • This is a project for Rotarians and only Rotarians so we need to ask you a few questions about you, your district, club, etc.
  • The second part is information about your candidate, name, location and how do we contact them.
  • Then we would like to know more about how you know them and why you think they would be a good Field Podcaster.

That’s it. If you do not have time to finish the application you can save it and come back later. Someone from the team may be contacting you and your candidate if we need some more information.

Thank you again for your time. We are excited to be working with you to tell the Rotary story. As Rotary International President Jennifer Jones said;

“We need ambassadors for Rotary’s message and our dreams for a better world.”  Rotary International President Jennifer Jones
