My only request, regardless of how long you have been a Toastmaster, is that you fully participate in all of the program components. Because Toastmasters is a “full immersion” program, members obtain the most out of it when they participate in all of the different functions either as a participant OR as a volunteer.
At your club meetings:
Outside of your club meetings:
The above provides just a few of the activities we conduct every year. Many of the duties above carry credit towards Basic and Advanced designations. Our District sustains itself based on the participation our members. Without your support, there is no District 47. However, with your commitment, dedication, and inspiration we stand to make a difference not only within ourselves but also our businesses and our communities.
Please take this journey with me to “Find the Talent Within” and to celebrate that District 47 undoubtedly will be # 1!!!!
Sincerely yours in Service,
Francis Molina, DTM
2013 - 2014 District 47 Governor
