It’s hard to believe that we’re half way through this Toastmasters’ Year. From my perspective District 26 is on course
for another outstanding year.
Successful Fall Conference. We concluded this first six months with a very successful fall conference on November 12 and
13. One hundred ninety two of us from Colorado, Wyoming and Nebraska got together, socialized, networked, were treated to an
inspiring keynote speech and two workshops by world-class inspirational speaker Albert Mensah, attended four other great
educational sessions and assembled at our business meeting to approve the budget and validate district officer appointments.
WOW! THANKS TO ALL WHO HELPED AND ATTENDED.

Toastmasters Web Site Improvements on the Way
December 16 - January 3, 2011

improved online content and a greater ability to track education awards.
To accommodate this upgrade, the Toastmasters’ online store will be inactive from 11:59 p.m., Pacific Standard Time,
Dec. 15, 2010, until 5 a.m., PST, Jan. 3, 2011. The same will be true for the club and district business sections. In
addition, members will not be able to update the “My Profile” section during this time.
Because members won’t have access to the Club Officer list during this period, we are extending the deadline for Club
Officer submissions to Jan. 14, 2011. World Headquarters is conducting physical inventory from Dec. 16, 2010, through
