For 70 years, District 25 has fostered an environment which has enabled some of the finest leaders and communicators in North Central Texas to grow. This year at the Fall Summit, we join the ranks as well and celebrate a Platinum Level You on November 9, at White’s Chapel United Methodist Church in Southlake.
The one-day event is fully loaded with fun and rich education sessions, which will provide essential information for club and individual growth. The day will begin with Area Council meetings where Area Directors will get together with club presidents, vice presidents education, vice presidents membership, and YOU to network and discuss practical activities that support clubs in fulfilling the club mission.
The cherry on top will be our world famous DTM ceremony, where we celebrate fellow Toastmasters who have earned the highest level of educational achievement in Toastmasters. You do not want to miss this very inspirational celebration of achievement.
Have you always wanted to be a speaker? Do you have that wonderful message you have wanted to share on the right platform and with the right audience? As we celebrate a Platinum Level YOU, increase your visibility and reach beyond your club by becoming a speaker at this year’s Summit.
