District One Director

Fellow Toastmasters,

It’s that time of year when we are all thinking about achievement. Contest season is in full swing and as usual, the contestants are giving it their all. The Division and Area Directors, along with their teams, are making sure that the contests are of the highest quality. Members are stepping up the pace in order to realize educational goals. Clubs are making the push toward becoming President’s Distinguished. So much is going on!

With all that’s going on, dues are also due.

Payment of dues keeps the members in good standing, helps to keep the clubs in good standing, as well as keep clubs on track to become Distinguished or better. Distinguished clubs make Distinguished areas. Distinguished areas make Distinguished divisions. Distinguished divisions lead to District One achieving Distinguished status. It’s a win-win for everyone!

As we move toward the end of the 2015-2016 Toastmasters year, I would like to encourage every member of District One to pay his or her dues. We all want District One to be Distinguished or better with the ultimate goal to be President’s Distinguished District and dues are a critical element in that effort.

District One members are amongst the finest in the world and I am proud to work together with you to achieve our goals.


Joyce Howard, DTM
District One Director
