Greetings fellow Toastmasters,
It is an honor to serve as your Program Quality Director! It’s going to be an exciting year especially with our new Pathways program starting in a few months. Pathways will invigorate your Toastmasters experience and help you learn other ways to present yourself to the world. You will truly go “Beyond Barriers”!
As you know it takes a TEAM to develop a distinguished club and a distinguished Toastmaster. To do this members must do their part in progressing through our programs – whether it’s through our current program or Pathways. And clubs must do their part in helping every member achieve their goals.
It is also my intention to visit as many clubs and meet as many members as I can. I want to hear your stories and goals. I want to hear how Toastmasters is helping you improve and become the best version of you OR if it’s not helping, why not?
The District Leadership will be working closely to leave no club or Toastmaster behind. We share a mutual vision — that is for every member to grow and thrive at home, at work and in the community by using the communication and leadership skills learned in Toastmasters.
SMILE – it’s going to be a great and fun year!
Janet Andres, CC, CL
Program Quality Director
District 49 Toastmasters
