Seeing new lives coming to the family is always exciting. Similarly, we’re excited to see new members coming to our clubs, and to see new clubs established.
In the past few weeks, we held Marketing Trainings from the north to the south. Thanks to the passionate Toastmasters for their sharing of the club-building experiences with the club officers, and for their assistance in initiating the buildup of new clubs.
Our goal for club building this year is “Every Area charters A New Club.” I’m sure, with your help, we’ll have no problem in making it.
We’re all grateful to the one who introduced us to Toastmasters Club. Now, it’s our turn to invite friends to our club meetings, and to encourage them to join us.
In order to recognize those who contribute a lot to the membership buildup, every year between August and September, Toastmasters International offers Smedley Award to the individuals, and to clubs as well, for recruiting five new members. It’s the right time now for you and your club to get it.
For educational achievement, I’d like to remind you that the best way to enhance your public speaking is to SPEAK. Try to challenge yourself to deliver one manual speech a month. If you keep doing so, in one year, you’ll get your CC or AC award, and your speaking skills will improve a lot. It might be just a small step in your Toastmasters career, but it can be a big step in the way to your successful life.
May you all have dreams in Toastmasters careers, and may Toastmasters help you realize all your dreams.Remember, it’s always YOU who should take the initiative. Once you start to do so, your life has become different and you have added colors to it.
