The Communications and Leadership Award is the highest honor a District can give a non-Toastmaster. It represents success in communication and empowerment of a team to achieve great things across a wide area — in our case, across an entire state or region. The recipient must be a resident of Connecticut, western Massachusetts, or eastern/upstate New York, a non-Toastmaster, and a figure of regional or statewide importance.
