District 3 Toastmasters: Where Leaders Are Made
This is a wonderful time of year with special magic in the air. Words of peace, hope, joy, happiness, giving and sharing are all around us. Fill your days and nights with family and friends. Reflect on the things that are important to you. During this holiday season, take a few minutes to look back at what you have accomplished so far this year. Then think about what you would like to accomplish this coming year. Write them down and choose the ones that will hold your passion and meet your goals.
District 3’s Toastmasters year is almost half over and we are now focused on the next half of the 2014-2015 year. This coming year will bring many changes into our Toastmasters lives. Embrace these changes and look forward to new experiences. I challenge each of you to reach out, stretch yourselves, be more creative and encourage other Toastmasters to do the same.
Enjoy the holidays and have a safe and Happy New Year!
Hallie Adams, DTM
2014-2015 District Governor
Toastmasters International President, Mohammed Murad, DTM, is scheduled to attend our 2015 Spring Conference, “It’s a Small World”, May 15, 16 and 17 in Phoenix. Make your plans now to attend and meet our 2014-2015 International President. He is the first top officer from the United Arab Emirates and is an entrepreneur from Dubai.
When asked for one piece of advice for every Toastmaster, he said, "Toastmasters is a way of life, not just a program. So my advice is: Take advantage of every opportunity in your Toastmasters journey, and stay in the organization long enough to reap the real benefits, which are embedded not only in becoming a better communicator, but in becoming a better leader."

Why mentor? “We all carry the seeds of greatness within us, but we need an image as a point of focus in order that they may sprout.” ~ Epictetus
New members need someone to explain the program to them and show them how to prepare for various meeting roles. They also need help preparing and rehearsing their first few speeches. Mentors can supply the valuable personal attention and ongoing support new members need. Visit http://www.toastmasters.org/mentoramember.
For additional information on mentoring please contact .
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!
