We may be approaching the end of the calendar year but we're only halfway through the Toastmasters year! Join us at the December Division Council Meetings to find out how you can Rise Up your club to be distinguished! Come hear from our distinguished keynote speakers and share with other club leaders your tips and tricks for working towards your club goals!
Division L will feature keynote speaker Past District Director Mark Lucas, DTM. Nearly two decades of work in Information Technology educated our speaker to be a great researcher, innovative problem solver, and valuable individual contributor, but not the best communicator or leader. The universe had other plans for him. He joined Toastmasters for a girl and gained the skills to speak to people rather than computers. Staying in Toastmasters for the leadership opportunities, he gained the courage to step outside his comfort zone and lead not just two clubs to President’s Distinguished, but District 100. He wasn’t born for this, but he learned to become a leader. If he can, you can.
Division P will feature keynote speaker Immediate Past District Director David Flores, DTM. A Toastmaster for 37 years, David brings a valued and storied perspective about how clubs have excelled through the years. As a 20-year football coach at the high school, collegiate, and semi-pro levels, David knows the challenges of building team cohesion and has become intimately familiar with how teamwork and motivation leads to success. His accolades also include his service as a Distinguished Program Quality Director for District 100, Founder's District Chief Judge, Founder's District Evaluation Champion, and Founder's District Table Topics Champion.
