District 3 Toastmasters: Where Leaders Are Made
What a great finish to a fun, exciting year - finishing the year as a Distinguished District with 219 active clubs, 9590 member payments and 127 Distinguished or better clubs. We chartered 20 new clubs last year and have 17 prospective clubs waiting to charter in 2014-2015. Congratulations to all members of District 3 for making 2013-2014 a special year.
How many of you have heard of Malaysian Airlines? Well, you can imagine how excited Jan and I are every time we think about our trip to Kuala Lumpur on Malaysian Airlines this month. We are looking forward to the District Leadership Training and learning about the new ideas Toastmasters International is planning to implement this year and next year. We are excited about going on stage to accept, for all of you, the Distinguished District Award. The excitement mounts when we think of listening to Michael Desiderio giving his speech at the World Championship of Public Speaking.
“Mentor for Success” - Wouldn’t it be great if we had 2 or 3 members running for every club or district office? We can prepare our members for the leadership challenges ahead by mentoring. Choose someone from your club or the district to mentor. By sharing our knowledge, supporting each other and working together as a cohesive team, District 3 can achieve excellence. Phil Jackson once said “The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team.”

Open to current Toastmasters who enjoy the invaluable lessons that Toastmasters provide as well as enjoy social events that are separate from Toastmasters.
The club will meet 2 times a month for regular Toastmasters meetings that consist of organizing meetings, building confidence in speaking in front of an audience, thinking fast on your feet with topical conversation and improving grammar, speaking and many other skills.
We will also meet 1-2 times a month for fun and family-friendly social events such as bowling nights, hiking excursions, movie nights, BBQ outings, day trips, community outreach and more.
The goal is to develop us as leaders and communicators and build camaraderie through outside social events. Our social events will mostly be designed to bring the whole family!
