DG Hallie AdamsDistrict Governor's Message

As we start a new calendar year, we think of new beginnings. Every year gives us a fresh start in the hopes that the goals we set each year will make us better and stronger. We have been told that if you write down your goals the chance of obtaining them is much greater.

Our goals for District 3 are:

Goal #1 is to be Distinguished or better again this year.
Goal #2 is to have 6 out of 6 unpaid clubs renew
Goal #3 is to rescue 8 out of the 8 Low-Minimum clubs
Goal #4 is to charter 13 more clubs
Goal #5 is to achieve 10,400 membership payments
Goal #6 is to achieve 110 Distinguished Clubs
Goal #7 is to have every club hold a speech contests
Goal #8 is to have a minimum of 2 candidates for each district office
Goal #9 is to grow by one division
Goal #10 is to meet the first 9 goals.

It's a Small World District 3 Spring Conference

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 Hallie and President Muradentrepreneur 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."

Mentoring Tip for Club Members

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.
