Welcome to the new District 20
In my conversations with people about Toastmasters, I say that to be an effective leader or communicator, you need three elements: a base of knowledge, regular practice and feedback on performance. All of these elements are available in our network of clubs in District 20.
‘Ours is the only organization I know dedicated to the individual’ ― Ralph Smedley,
Believing in this quote from Dr. Smedley, the Founder of Toastmasters, my vision to District 20 is to see each and every member reap the benefits of Toastmasters which I gained during my Toastmasters journey. As for my mission, it is to guide and keep our District focused on building new clubs and supporting all clubs in achieving excellence.
Achieving excellence is not only challenging but requires hard-work, empowerment, team-work and motivation. These are all goals in our district’s plan that we aim to reach as one team. We believe we should incorporate the core values of toastmasters “Respect, Integrity, Service and Excellence” as anchor points in every decision we make.
I look forward to working with every member of D20 and not only watching leaders being made but, more importantly, watching friendships of incalculable value being built.
