First of all, my heart felt gratitude to all my fellow Toastmasters of District 80 for your support electing me as your Program Quality Director for the term 2016-2017, and for granting me this precious opportunity to serve the Toastmasters fraternity.

District 80 Director’s Opening Address For The Term


Day break has come and morning has broken.

As a brand new dawn ushers in, so too has our term begun with newly set goals, newly targeted achievements and a whole host of powerful new dreams waiting to be realized.

Bob Dylan once sang how ‘..the times, they are a-changing..,’ and he could very well have been talking about our Toastmasters journey. We are greatly energized by the new plans which we believe will discover, sharpen and further our skills both as speakers par excellence as well as leaders of integrity and compassion. We will serve by empowering you to achieve your personal goals, chart club successes as well as ensure that the district is able to support, inspire and guide as you set about accomplishing your plans.
