Division E Director Gilles Robert
Welcome Message 🙂
I am proud to announce Meetup groups have been launched!
We have 3 groups:
• Build your Confidence with Toastmasters (Pickering to Oshawa)
• Build your Confidence with TM (Bowmanville to Belleville)
• Build your Confidence with TM (Peterborough to Lindsay)
Meetup is “an online social networking site that facilitates offline group meetings and it allows members to find and join groups unified by a common interest.” Within your Meetup group, you have the ability to create your own personalized information on your club stating what makes your club the one to visit. The District is funding a Meetup group for you to use until December 23, 2019, free of charge to you, to assist in attracting new guests and future members to your club.
My sincere thanks to Grace Archibald, Whitby Intrepid Toastmasters, President/VP of Public Relations, for accomplishing this during the Holiday Season.
I encourage your club to take advantage of this extraordinary opportunity. Please contact me for more information.
