District 60 Alignment for 2020-2021
Final version of District Alignment now available!
When Toastmasters Districts grow to a certain size, it becomes necessary to look at a reformation strategy that keeps the organization vibrant and its members successful. This process is akin to the realignment process that Districts go through every year with Divisions and Areas. Both District 60 and District 86 have grown substantially since the original reformation in 2008, and we are at the point again where we must look to the future.
