Greetings District 26, I hope this finds you and your family well.
Our contest season is upon us and the speeches will be Tall Tales and of course, International Speech. I am very excited to hear all of the speeches this year, and with them taking place on Zoom we can hear them all.
This year we were hoping to conduct in person contests but we are continuing to stay safe and have online contests. Specific details for all Area, Division, and District level competitions may be found on our District Calendar. Resources for online speech contests may be found here.
We are also preparing for the first ever FREE conference. This is a silver lining that we need in these uncertain times. The conference will be held on Friday, 04/30/2021 and Saturday, 05/01/2021. We are gathering the details and will get information on the calendar sooner than later. If you are interested in conducting a district-wide education session on leadership or communication, please email me directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nevertheless, I am extremely proud of the leaders and members of District 26 for rising to the occasion, despite the challenges. I encourage you to review the resources linked here while continuing to conduct Toastmasters business in an online fashion.
Be safe and stay well!!!
