It's already August! Wow, time does fly when we are having fun!
District 49 is looking strong on the path of the District mission “We build new clubs and support all clubs in achieving excellence”. Congratulations for all the contributions that helped make this happen!
Let’s review some of our July’s successes and recent updates as we go “beyond barriers”.
Thanks to Wen He, webmaster and Dean Masai’s PR team, our district website and Facebook page was refreshed, rejuvenated and renewed day one (1) of the new year! And how about team member Jenny Delos Santos? OMG Jenny, thank you for all the help with articles and press releases!
It just kept on rocking from there!
Club officers, district division and area directors training was a big success. There is one more offering August 28, 2017 for first round of training. There is still time to register at Eventbrite. As of this writing, the following clubs so far had 7 of 7 club officers trained and are eligible for the Program Quality incentive. Congratulations to Downtown Business Associates Club, Hawaiian Telcom Toastmasters, HMCOA Bilingual Toastmasters Club, Laulima Toastmasters Club, Liliuokalani Club, Nuuanu Toastmasters Club, and Waikiki Club.
The district held its first of four required district executive committee (DEC) meetings. Operationally, the completed district club alignments were sent to WHQ.
Thank you to club officers that reported their officer’s list to Toastmasters International WHQ and for installing new officers. Mahalo to area directors who participated with the installation. Please welcome area directors for club visits taking place by September 30th.
It happened in July! First newly chartered club; HMCOA Bilingual Toastmasters this new year! Club Growth Director Helen Dora Hyden shares that two (2) more clubs are on track to hopefully charter by September 30.
Pathways training has started! Club officers may contact the guides and ambassadors to set up a club training. The launch is September 2017.
The past days successes of educational and leadership advancements are proof of everyone’s commitment, dedication and willingness to help each other. We are doing it; going “beyond barriers” in our toastmaster’s journey and road to Distinguish.
Please visit the website district49.org and Facebook page. We love the “Let the world know” about toastmasters with all your latest news too! Until, next month,
Mahalo and malama pono,
