May Greetings

Dear Toastmasters,

I hope this message finds you all well and thriving in your speaking and leadership journeys. As we move forward, I have some important updates and reminders to share with you all.

Firstly, I’m pleased to announce that I was elected to a second term as Division E Director for 2024-2025. I am excited to continue serving District 53! I encourage anyone who might want to be an Area Director next year to send their information to me, so we can have a conversation.

As we gear up for the District Conference on May 11, I urge you all to plan to attend. It’s a fantastic opportunity to connect with fellow Toastmasters, learn from inspiring speakers, and support our Division E champions in the contests. 

Now, let’s talk about Club Officer elections. Nominations should be made by the last meeting in April, with elections taking place by the first meeting in June. It’s crucial that the new officers are reported on the website by June 30. 

There are ten Club Officer Training events scheduled already. If you’d like to be involved in facilitating those events, please let Bettyann Peck and Mohan Padamati know. Make sure to mark these events in your schedules to ensure you don’t miss out on valuable training opportunities.

In closing, I want to express my gratitude to each and every one of you for your dedication and commitment to Toastmasters. I have learned that I cannot do this alone. I need your support to bring positive change and growth to Division E. 

Warm regards,

Elizabeth (Liz)  Keeling
Division E Director 2023-2024-2025!
