Memories, And Emcee Tips

I always answer local phone numbers. One day in June that number was District 96 Fall Conference Chair, Linda Lee, and she asked me to co-emcee the district 96 fall conference.  I’d be working with Dorothea Hendriks, whom I’d only heard speak once… and I loved her. I hung up the phone super excited, I turned to my girl, Jody Lea, and said,”Hey babe’s, I just got asked to co-emcee the fall conference.”

Jodes face turned crooked, “What, they don’t trust you to do it on your own??? OMG typical Toastmasters.”

Nominating District Leaders

Every year on July 1st a new set of Toastmasters leaders take up their roles.  This happens at all four levels of leadership in our district - Club, Area, Division and District.

Club elections provide the majority of the leaders (almost 1,000) at the club level.
