Hello Division A Toastmasters!
I am very excited to be your Division Director for the 2023-2024 year. I have been a member of Toastmasters since November of 2020. My home club is Talk It Up Toastmasters (#8045) in Windsor, CT. I was also a proud member of Nathan Hale Toastmasters (#1484) in Manchester, CT for two and a half years before work obligations got in the way. Through both I have met wonderful Toastmasters that had a very positive impact on my personal growth.
In the last few years, I have completed 3 Pathways: Persuasive Influence, Presentation Mastery, and Visionary Communication. I am currently working on the Effective Coaching and Leadership Development Paths, as well as working towards becoming a Pathways Mentor and Distinguished Toastmaster. I was honored to receive the Area Director of the Year Award for 2022-2023.
I am excited to be a Division Director to serve more clubs in the District and connect with more Toastmasters. I see great value in the community and personal growth Toastmasters fosters. I want to see clubs growing so more people can experience the benefits it provides. Membership growth is going to be my focus this year both as Division Director and for my DTM project.
Division A will have virtual council meetings once a month with ADs (club officers also welcome!) on the first Tuesday of each month. I will also be organizing virtual workshops quarterly that are open to all members. Topics will have relevance to both growing our clubs and growing ourselves as leaders.
