Each year the District winner of the International Speech contest will have their name inscribed on the base of the Angela Louie Trophy and retain the trophy until passing it on to the next contest winner.

Angela Louie with her trophyHistory:  During the (2004 -2005) Toastmaster year, Angela Louie did what no other Toastmaster in District 21 (all of British Columbia, Canada) had ever done - win 3 district titles in a row. 

Angela won the Table Topics, Speech Evaluation and International Speech contests.

As a result of winning the District 21 International Speech contest Angela went on to compete in the 2005 World Championships of Public Speaking and win the Silver Medal.

In May 2014 Allan de la Plante (a founding member of Politically Speaking and Angela's coach all through her journey to the international stage) wanted to honour Angela's achievement.  Allan created the trophy and donated it to the newly created District 96 - on behalf of Politically Speaking Toastmasters (renamed - February 2018 - to Speak Your Mind Toastmasters Club)

The beautiful bronze trophy was unveiled at the first District 96 spring conference in May 2015 in Prince George, British Columbia.

A small plaque at the base of the trophy is inscribed with the words...

In 2004 & 2005 Angela Louie did what no one in BC Toastmasters had ever done. She won 3 district titles in a row: Table Topics, International Speech, and Evaluation. She then won the Regional title to become one of the top 10 competitive speakers in the world. At the 2005 world championships of Public Speaking, Angela became the first BC Toastmaster to win a silver medal. her mission is to inspire people to do great things.

This award is presented to District 96 by Politically Speaking Toastmasters.

Each year the District winner of the Speech Evaluation contest will have their name inscribed on the base of the Anne Kramer Cup and retain the trophy until passing it on to the next contest winner.

The Anne Kramer Cup, was created to honor the dedication and remarkable leadership of Anne Kramer.

Anne Kramer CupJust before Anne took over as District Governor - 2004-2005 - District 21 was one of the largest Districts in the world.  It was also a struggling District.  When Anne was elected District Governor, she announced that the District theme for the coming year would be “Dare To Win” and set the goal of taking District 21 to #1 Club in the world during her term as District Governor.  Knowing Anne’s tenacity and dedication, almost everybody felt that if anyone could lead District 21 to #1 in the world, Anne could – and would!

Anne worked tireless the whole year and on the morning of June 30th, 2005, District 21 was #1 in the world!  When the final tally was made that day, D21 finished at #3.  Even so, it was one of the most remarkable turnarounds in the 80-year history of Toastmasters in B. C.  It is also a record that will be hard to match!

Anne passed away in 2007.

Anne was President of several Clubs including Advanced Aurators, a Club that focuses on speech evaluations.  When District 96 decided to create a Speech Evaluation contest trophy in memory of Anne Kramer - Advanced Aurators was thrilled to provide the Anne Kramer Cup.

Meetup Groups For Clubs To Use

Category

The district has three meetup groups available for clubs to promote upcoming open houses and competitions. A great way to get your club in the presence of hundreds of people. We know that not all clubs have their own meetup group and thus these groups function as communal meetup groups for clubs that do not have the resources to operate one. The groups that district clubs can post in are based on the geography of the club:

Geographic Groups (You can set up repeat events for your club meetings):
http://www.meetup.com/Vancouver-Networkers/
http://www.meetup.com/Tri-Cities-personalgrowth/
http://www.meetup.com/learningpublicspeaking/

How to get started posting:

1- Join the group that you are interested in 

2- Send a message to the group organizer/manager specifying your club and role and interest in posting. 

3- Upon granted posting privileges, you can proceed on to posting 

Clubs are encouraged to choose 1 or 2 meetup groups and post there and check on a regular basis as guests may be asking questions on it. 

Looking for Meetup managers: 

We are looking for club officers who can serve as meetup organizers/managers. The role consists of helping introduce some of these meetup groups to your club officers to meet up and helping new users on meetup fit in (find the right club). This community role is great for any district officer or club officer wanting to help take their club to the next level. 

If you are interested, please email our 2018-2019 Club Growth Director, Camilo Reyes at clubgrowth@d96toastmasters.ca
