Congratulations to the newly chartered club in District 26:
HAvocado Toast, chartered February 28, 2019, # 7250360
There are some positive leads that will likely generate actual clubs. If you have any leads, are interested in helping with kickoff meetings or are interested in serving as a club sponsor or mentor, please contact me at CGD1819@d26leaders.org.
If you are interested in serving as a club coach, please contact Retention Chair, Victoria Bard at email@example.com. Or you may also access the District 26 Club Coach Questionnaire and read the blog article. We are seeking to make the questionnaire more easily accessible.
Clubs should be collecting dues renewals now for the upcoming April dues renewal cycle. Timely payment of dues is required in order for maintaining good standing for the club, allowing interested members to compete in contests and allowing members continued access to the Pathways platform.
Believe it or not, we are approaching the home stretch for the 2018-2019 Toastmasters program year and there are many issues to consider.
In order to finish the year strong, please continue having membership drives and Open Houses. This is also a great time to follow through on your plans for succession planning, that is, who will take up the torch of leadership for next year.
At the club level, please start looking at those within your club who will serve in officer roles for the upcoming 2019-2020 Toastmasters year.
