DREAM, DARE, DO !

District News - March, April, May 2022
February 5, 2022 was the District 59 District Officers Training (DOT). It was the first time in two years, a live training was possible (Lille, France) 
Dear District 59 Toastmasters, 

So much is happening during these next three months (contests, dues renewal, elections, Spring Event, etc.) that I had to combine them ! 
This period is exciting because we are in the last few months of the year and preparing for the future of District 59.

Of course, District 59 is going to send a Champion Speaker to the Quarter Finals and (fingers crossed) to the World Champion of Public Speaking in Nashville, Tennessee!

Keep striving for "One member, One level" in Pathways. 
Keep striving for membership building with two programs: Talk Up Toastmasters! and Beat the Clock!

Dream you can do it, Dare yourself to make it happen, and Do what it takes to be active and committed to your club and fellow Toastmasters!

The next issue will be published June 1 and recap what happened in May and what's coming up next!

DOT Lille, France

The first live District Officers Training (DOT) in two years was held in Lille, France. We had a full day (09:00-18:00) of training. 2022-2023 District Officers will probably have the opportunity to network life twice  next year! The face-to-face networking is rewarding!
