District 26 - Serving Colorado, Wyoming and Western Nebraska


Many elections took place and we have a newly elected International Director from Region IV, Harold Osmundson.  For those of you who attended the District Council Meeting on May 2, 2020, he was in attendance as a then-candidate for the position.  Let’s welcome Harold Osmundson and cheer him on as he represents Toastmasters, globally, while serving on the Board of Directors.


Proposal A failed

Proposal B passed

Board of Directors Briefing

  1. For the 2020-21 program year, Districts may charter fully online clubs and those clubs do become a part of that said District. This is awesome news for the District as COVID-19 has severely impacted our chartering process.
  2. Policy 2.0 has been updated to reflect that all club meetings are conducted in-person, online or a combination of the two (hybrid).
  3. All clubs are allowed to meet completely online without re-chartering as an online club.
