Do you know someone who is deserving to be recognized as our 2024 C&L Recipient?

District 96 Toastmasters,

The purpose of the Communication and Leadership Community Award is to honor a non-Toastmaster who has made substantial contributions in the areas of communication and leadership.


This person is perhaps a public official, a business leader, an academic leader, or who is successful in other fields of endeavor and would be an excellent nominee.
