Develop Successful Teams 

with our Region 1 Advisor, Sondra Nunez, DTM

As area and division directors, you serve as liaisons between districts and clubs; to accomplish all the responsibilities of these important roles, you depend on the teams you build. The effectiveness of these teams is a reflection of your ability to lead and motivate. You lay the groundwork for effective teamwork by creating and maintaining a team agreement at the beginning of your term. In this session, you examine a team agreement and discuss motivation and conflict-resolution techniques to keep your teams strong and productive.  Participants Workbook link attached below.

People tend to get discouraged when they put one or a few pieces of the puzzle in play and, consequently, do not see results. 

Jamak will introduce some basic marketing strategies and principles to help you understand how to promote your club or other organizations you may be involved with.  This is the first of a series of workshops to be offered once a month over the next several months. 

Register here.

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.
