2017 Promises to be a Great Year

“I sincerely hope 2016 has been a great year of growth for you personally and your club. It is so inspiring to see how supportive Toastmasters are to each other no matter what the situation which helps people grow into effective communicators and leaders.  By keeping our meetings interesting with the educational program first and foremost growth will continue indefinitely.  

Looking at 2017 as a whole promises more buzz in District 21:

January: Demo meetings in several potential clubs. Open houses in a few others. Guests flooding in as part of their new year’s resolutions, Ted Corcoran!

February: Toastmasters Month – Have you contacted your council to have a proclamation? Open houses scheduled?

March – April: Contests, Spring Conference.

May-June: Finishing off those last few awards/signing up members to become a Distinguished Club.

Summer:  International Convention with a cruise afterwards right here in BC!

Fall: Pathways Educational Experience launch

2017 will be very busy, but so exciting.  Let’s work together in the new year to make sure every club in District 21 is determined to bring in new members and keep working the educational program – that way we all grow.

Sincerely offer my best wishes to you and your loved ones during the holiday season.”
