It’s the start of the new Toastmasters year and it’s time for new beginnings and a new Senior Leadership Team. I am pleased to be working with District Director Cindy Hinckley, Program Quality Director Jodie Sanders and Public Relations Manager Mary Walker. I am Chuck Mencke and will be serving as District 25’s Club Growth Director. We have a fantastic team in place that will be helping everyone “Achieve Excellence” in District 25.
My area of focus is growth in members and clubs. I also head up District 25’s Demo Team and recommend club coaches, mentors and sponsors to the District Director. I’ll be chartering new clubs and addressing the needs of clubs that may be challenged and in need of help.
I am asking for your help in making this the best year ever in District 25. First, we’re always looking for dedicated Toastmasters to join our demo team, led by Michael Sheridan. The team conducts abbreviated meetings to show interested companies or groups how a Toastmasters meeting works. We have a wonderful process in place for conducting the meetings, but we need helpers. You can’t put on a play without actors!
Second, I am looking for a Club Support Chair. This detailed-oriented person will monitor existing clubs and help me identify those that are facing challenges and need assistance.
Do you want to make a difference and gain a sense of accomplishment? Then I need YOU to help me grow clubs within District 25. Working together, we can “Achieve Excellence” for our clubs and members.
