Job descriptions for District 5040 volunteer positions are lists of the general tasks, or functions, and responsibilities of the position. District 5040 job descriptions identify and spell out the responsibilities of a specific volunteer position in the district. These job descriptions are living, breathing documents that are updated as tasks change.

The job descriptions are not the limit of responsibilities, but rather, cause the Rotarian holding the position to stretch their experience, grow their skills, and develop their ability to contribute to Rotary and their community

All appointments with the exception of the District Foundation Committee chair are held at the discretion of the District Governor in consultation with the district leadership team.
