Happy End of the Toastmasters Year!!! It is hard to believe that the 2018-2019 is quickly drawing to a close. I started this year as Club Growth Director not knowing what to expect, but I can say that I have learned a lot.
I would like to thank all who stepped forward to volunteer to assist with extension and retention efforts throughout the year. Particularly, I would like to thank Cynthia Thorstad, Darryle Brown and Victoria Bard for the all serving in the Retention Chair role throughout the course of the year.
I would like to thank May Tran for serving in the Extension Chair throughout the year.
I would like to thank all of the extension and retention coordinators who assisted this year.
I want to thank all of the Division and Area Directors who were greatly instrumental in assisting with extension and retention efforts throughout the year.
Thank you to each volunteer who assisted with any of the kickoff meetings throughout the year.
Thank you to those who have stepped up to serve as coaches, mentors and sponsors. Your support of the clubs in our District is immensely appreciated.
I want to thank my fellow TRIO members, Marcia Wood and Mike Akins for a great year and for teaching me so much more about Toastmasters that I never knew existed.
Thank you District 26 Toastmasters for entrusting me to serve at the executive level of leadership. I appreciate the vote of confidence for this past year and for the upcoming year.
