At each of our District-wide conferences, we have a District Council Meeting to discuss and vote on issues affecting the entire membership of Northeast Ohio Toastmasters.
The next District Council Meeting will be October 24th, at the Fall 2015 Conference in Fairlawn, Ohio. The meeting will take place in the morning before all the other conference activities begin.
Any Toastmaster in District 10 is permitted to attend the District Council Meeting. The following people have voting power at the meeting and are required to attend:
- District Executive Leadership
- Area Directors
- Division Directors
- Club Presidents (or their proxy)
- Club Vice Presidents of Education (or their proxy).
Not able to Attend? Assign Your Vote to Another Member of Your Club
It is important that we have a quorum of voting members at the District Council Meeting in order to be able to discuss and vote on issues.
As listed above, every club gets two votes at the District Council Meeting. Therefore, if you are a Club President or a Club Vice President of Education, and will not be able to attend the District Council meeting, please click here and fill out the official proxy form. The proxy form allows you to assign your vote to another member of your club so that we have a quorum, and so that your voice may be heard!
Preparing for the Council Meeting
In preparation for the meeting, several items have recently been uploaded to the District Downloads area of this website under “Council Meeting Resources“.
Please review the following three documents:
- Spring 2015 District Council Meeting Minutes
- Audit Committee Review Summary
- District 10 Budget for 2015-2016
There is no charge to attend the District Council Meeting, and it is not required that you attend the rest of the conference on October 24th.
Of course, we hope you might want to attend the conference in order to learn from other Toastmasters, network and have a fun day learning how to be a better speaker and leader!

See you on the 24th!
