First Timers Chair

Are you a First Timer at the Conference? We have a lot in store for you this spring!

Not only do you get all the benefits of attendance such as Friday Night Fun, Contests, Education Sessions and Keynote Speakers, as well as the Saturday Evening DTM Awards Ceremony, but you also get so much more! On Friday evening, you are invited to an exclusive, First Timers Only reception where you will mingle with other first time attendees and meet dignitaries, including our District Director Chris Raneri and our International Director TK O’Geary. We will also have games, drawings, and prizes, JUST FOR YOU!

We are rolling out the red carpet to welcome YOU to the District 25 Annual Conference.

Are you a first timer at the District 25 Conference?  Attending your first District 25 Toastmasters conference may seem a bit scary at first, but that’s why we have prepared this document for first timers. And no, we won’t ask you to jump off a veranda or even perform a trust fall. Just come to the conference prepared to have a good time and improve your speaking and leadership skills.

I’m sure you have a lot of questions about the conference.  Below are a few of the most frequently asked questions and associated answers.  Feel free to email additional questions to the First Timer chair.

How do I register for the conference?
Online registration is the most convenient way to register. You can also print, fill out, and submit a registration form via mail. Full conference registration is a bargain at only $152 for registrations received through April 3, 2021 ($155 after). There are outstanding keynote speakers, educational sessions, speech contests, great food, and social events. Check out all the details on the District 25 web site. This is one of the best investments you can make in your ongoing speaking and leadership skills development.

What can I expect upon arrival?
We have a registration desk just for first time conference participants. You’ll be greeted warmly, receive a “first timers” registration package. Friday evening there is a welcome reception for first time conference participants featuring Chris Raneri, District 25 Director and International Director TK O’Geary.

Is there a dress code?
Daytime activities call for a business casual dress code (khakis and a polo shirt is fine.) Friday evening is your choice of either business casual attire or casual. Saturday evening is a more formal event so dress to impress (tux or suit and tie would be appropriate for men, evening dress for women.)

Where is the conference being held?
The conference is at the Marriott – Dallas/Fort Worth Westlake, 1301 Solana Blvd, Bldg. 3, Westlake, TX 76262. This is a great facility offering a conference room rate of $91/night.
