I am honoured to be a nominated candidate for District Director. I attended my first Toastmasters meeting 10 years ago and I remember leaving feeling excited and motivated. The leaders in that club gave me valuable insight that made me want to learn more about communication and leadership offered through Toastmasters.
Because of the encouragement of those leaders, and the many leaders that have shaped my Toastmasters journey, I went on to hold multiple leadership roles at the club level as well as Area and Division Director. I have served as the district Club Coach Chair, Pathways Chief Ambassador and D60 Annual Conference Chair. My most recent positions include Club Growth Director and I am the current Program Quality Director. It is leaders like you that inspire me in the same way my club officers did 10 years ago. As your District Director, we will build new clubs, strengthen existing clubs, focus on educational excellence, and help our members step into their greatness.
My vision this year is to focus on the success of our members, clubs and district. We will have new challenges during this reformation transition year but challenges also create new opportunities. Together we will embrace those opportunities as you explore your communication and leadership development. It is important to me that all clubs focus on the club mission, and revisit the Toastmasters promise regularly. I want this to be a time when you feel comfortable knowing that change will happen and that your voice and opinion matter.
Serving as your District Director is a privilege and given the opportunity, I will pursue the District mission and uphold the Toastmasters values. I am committed to helping you become the communicator and leader you want to be. Therefore, I respectfully ask for your vote.
