The time for which we have eagerly awaited is here!
We are on the cusp of launching Toastmasters International’s new education program, Pathways, an innovative, relevant, and robust program for learning leadership and communication skills. What an exciting time to be a Toastmaster!
As part of Region 6, our District is scheduled to launch the new program on October 31, 2017.
What does that mean for you?
You need to learn about the program!
- Each club will receive a visit by a Pathways Ambassador and Guide.
- In addition, each Division is hosting at least one training session (or Pathways TLI). If you are a Club President, VPE, or Secretary please make sure you are educated about Pathways before October 31. (click here to register for a session)
