Greetings from Your Club Growth Director!

Plan For

I am a life-long Toastmaster. No, it is not because I am a slow learner, although some might argue this point! It is because I like being successful in all aspects of my life.

Plan For

Like many others, I joined to improve specific skills in and leadership. We remain Toastmasters because of our continued commitment to self-improvement through creative teamwork that brings out the best in every member. When combined with the shared contentment and joy that naturally occurs through diversity, inclusion, and support, we have an unbeatable plan for success.

As your Club Growth Director (CGD), I want to help you and your club plan for as well. Let’s offer the gifts of increased confidence, professionalism, networking, and skills to as many people as possible. As an added bonus, FUN is an integral part of this plan! It is my experience, and that of the more than 364,000 members in 145 countries around the world, that the simple act of participating in a club is all that is needed to empower individuals to move toward success. Let’s work together to expand the Toastmasters opportunity for throughout our district.

My team of experts is here to support existing clubs, offering experienced coaches to help retain and grow their membership so clubs thrive with energy and enthusiasm. Our Club Extension Committee will help contact and provide program support, sponsors and mentors to the organizations, businesses or communities that you think might benefit from Toastmasters.

Are you working towards your DTM and looking to serve as a club coach, mentor, or new club sponsor? My team can help connect you to a club in need and ensure you get the experience and credit to succeed.

I look forward to meeting you. Reach out to my team or me so we can work together to strengthen our clubs and communities by ensuring is available to as many people as possible. Let’s plan together for success throughout District 84.
