Submit your proxies for international elections
Presidents and Secretaries, you play an integral part in the Toastmasters International annual business meeting to be held during the 87th Annual Toastmasters International Convention on Saturday, August 20, at 12:30 p.m. in Chicago, Illinois.
You hold your club’s votes to elect the international officers and directors to the 2018-2019 Board of Directors and to vote on Proposal A: Amendments to the Bylaws of Toastmasters International.
To have your voice heard, please follow one of these steps:
- Send a delegate to the Annual Business Meeting;
- Designate the 2018-2019 district director or next senior district officer in attendance as its proxy holder; or
- Designate an active Toastmaster from another club as your proxy holder.
As District Director, it would be my honour to carry your club’s proxy. There are two types of proxies, Instructed Proxy and Uninstructed Proxy. For an Instructed Proxy, your club can indicate your preference for a particular officer and director candidate and the proposal and I will execute your proxy as directed. For an Uninstructed Proxy, if your club doesn’t indicate a preference, the proxy holder (me) will vote in what I believe to be the best interests of the organization.
To designate a proxy holder go to www.toastmasters.org, login, go to Club Central and assign your proxy.
