The District Director may invite others to attend DEC meetings who have business to conduct. DEC meeting attendance is by District Director invitation only – no others may attend.

DEC meetings are held at least four times a year and are chaired by the District Director. The DEC is charged with reviewing and approving the District Success Plan, preparing a budget, overseeing the financial operations of the District, recommending the assignment of clubs to Areas and Divisions, and reviewing recommendations/reports of district committees (including the audit committee).
