What a fantastic start to our Toastmasters Year!
Thank you for all you have done to embrace the Strive for Five Campaign. Members please share your progress in giving 5 manual speeches. Several Area Governors have identified future leaders. Two club leads have been provided from Division Governors. Together we can ensure the success of the District this year!
I hope Strive for Five in motivating and encouraging, however the District wants to do more to celebrate your success. Therefore, we have several incentives for you.
- Distinguished by January 31 is back! Any club which has at least 5 DCP points and 20 members or a net increase of 5 members over their base, will receive a banner or a $100 Gift Certificate to the TI store.
- Favorite Website contest is on! Many clubs use the Free Toast Host website. We want to recognize the clubs that have taken the opportunity to personalize their websites. Take a tour of the clubs’ websites and pick your favorites. We will have place on the District 10 website to vote 10/14-10/25. Take the next few days to spruce up your website if you want to be noticed! The prize will be a $100 Gift Certificate to the TI store.
Our District is growing strong. We have had two great Demonstration meetings and our first new club of the year has chartered! Thank you Pete Punwani for all your hard work as Club Extension Chair!
Don’t forget to renew your dues! We need everyone to renew and encourage a friend to join as well.
Please let us know if you need any assistance to ensure your success.
