A special message from our District Director Michael Beach

Hello District 37,

It is an honor to serve as your District Director for the 2020/2021 year. It is a new day for District 37 as we transition to splitting into Districts 37 and 117. This is a great time to be a member of Toastmasters. It is obvious that COVID-19 has affected all of us in more ways than just Toastmasters. However, our members have pulled together and achieved success by meeting virtually, by having contests using Zoom, and having district wide meetings online.

The value that Toastmasters brings to its members is the most important part. When the members achieve their goals, then the district will be successful. It starts with each of you.

The district mission is to build new clubs and support all clubs to achieve excellence. We can bring the Toastmasters experience to more people by starting new clubs and by increasing club membership. Since Toastmasters is a communication organization it is important that each of you please let the district leaders know how we can help you.

The core values of Toastmasters—Integrity, Respect, Service, and Excellence—should be remembered by all members of District 37 including the district officers.

The future of District 37 is dependent upon each of you.

Michael
