Ancin Munnings, DTM
Program Quality Director

Ancin Munnings is a Senior Coordinator of IT Operations by profession. A Toastmaster since 2012, Ancin did not seek out Toastmasters at all! After graduating from Government High his former boss and now fellow Toastmaster invited him to attend a meeting of The First Bahamas Branch of Toastmasters Club 1600 but declined due to seeing it as not being “his kind of thing” at that time being an introvert. However, five years later the offer came to him again to visit Club 1600 and he accepted it discovering that this is what is needed to “get him out of his shell”. Since joining Toastmasters, he has climbed the ladder of leadership serving in all club officer positions (Sergeant at Arms to President), serving as the Area 93 Director, serving as the Club Retention Chairman (for The Bahamas), he is currently the Division I Director of District 47 and was elected as the Club Growth Director of District 47 (2023-2024). Ancin obtained the coveted Distinguished Toastmaster designation (the highest education award in Toastmasters) in 2020. Ancin credits Toastmasters for finding his path in life and the myriad of experiences and mentorship along his journey shaped him into the professional that he is today being a leader and not a follower. He states, “Being a leader is the most responsible, yet most rewarding role anyone could have, for that reason, it is not an easy task to become one and it is even more difficult to maintain the role. If you wish to become a good leader you must be an effective communicator with a no excuses, only adjustments mindset”. He is an avid reader, and sports enthusiast, and loves to travel.

Ann McLaughlin, DTM
DTM Florida Co-Chair

As an educator, financial professional, speaker, and servant leader – I bring my passion for humor, storytelling, and numbers to inspire others. My professional experience spans over 20 years. I earned both a Master of Accounting and MBA from Nova Southeastern University; while holding various licenses in real estate, insurance, taxation, and notary public. I work as a business broker helping individuals buy or sell businesses, including mergers and acquisitions.
I became a member of Toastmasters International in May 2013 and earned my Distinguished Toastmaster (DTM) Award in 2021. My journey to DTM was challenging yet rewarding. When I reflect on the role of a D-T-M, it means Dedicated to Mentoring. As a result, I completed the Pathways Mentor Program. As a member of Port St Lucie Speakers Toastmaster Club, I sponsored and mentored many club members. I am enthusiastic about mentoring emerging leaders and communicators, while supporting their journey to DTM.
During my Toastmasters journey, I amplified my leadership skills by serving my club in various leadership roles. Also, I previously served District 47 as Area 40 Director, Finance Manager and Community Outreach Chair. I am proud to serve as DTM Florida Co-Chair for this Toastmaster Year (2024-2025).
My most recent achievement is writing/publishing a compilation book – “Embrace Your Fruit: Overcoming to Becoming” with my Toastmasters family. The book engages readers with personal stories of overcoming challenges and setbacks, inspiring hope, and confidence.
