Message from Joyce

District One Director

Fellow Toastmasters, Family and Friends,

We are in the last 30 days and counting down to the end of our 2015/2016 Toastmasters year. Where did the time go?

As always, the year has been quite busy in District One and my fellow members continue to amaze me. Every challenge, every opportunity, every task that you face, you rise up to meet them with grace, dignity and determination. I am so proud of our members. We are truly “Getting It Done, in District One.”

At this point, in the same way that our clubs are implementing their Club Success Plans to become Distinguished clubs, District One is challenged to become a Distinguished District.

Yes, there are obstacles. My message to you is that “Obstacles are Opportunities in Disguise.”

In the next 30 days, we have an opportunity to shine, and here it is!

To help you and your clubs “get it done,” to smooth your path to becoming a Distinguished club, to spur membership gains and best practices, District One still has incentives to reward your clubs.

There’s the District Director Top 20 Clubs Award, Sponsor or Mentor a new club and “Beat the Clock”. Click here for details on all incentives.

Also, check out the District One Website homepage weekly. There's a silver bar on the homepage (left side, just below Area Director App) that will take you to the DCP goals page. Or click here!

I encourage each club officer and each member to make a commitment and help our district create an environment that will enable all of us to achieve our highest potential.

Each one of us can make a difference! Each of us can help our clubs to become Distinguished and better.

Waldo Ralph Emerson said it best, “What lies behind us and what lies ahead of us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”

As your District Director, I want 2016 to be your year of recognition as a President’s Distinguished Club!

We are District One, We CAN get it done!


Joyce Howard, DTM
District One Director
