Tempus fugit, and we are already six months into our current program year.

As of 30 November 2016, we have awarded 170 CCs, 30 ACBs, 10 ACSs, 11 ACGs, 77 CLs, 43 ALBs, 18 ALSs, 15 Leadership Excellence Awards and 19 DTMs. That’s a total of 393 education/leadership awards, of which there are 19 Triple Crown Award winners. Congratulations to all the award achievers.

With the imminent roll-out of Toastmasters Pathways, our education system will be revamped, and there will be a completely different education/leadership achievement recognition scheme. The existing recognition scheme will be terminated after the transition period to the new scheme, and education/leadership awards will not be transferable to the new scheme. Members are urged to put in their best effort to attain the highest education/leadership awards before the termination of the existing recognition scheme. To continue incentivize our members to strive for education and leadership excellence, the district will extend the recognition scheme

On club DCP achievement, the following clubs have attained 5 or more than 5 DCP goals as of 16 December 2016:

Congratulations to all club officers and members of the above clubs for qualifying as Distinguished Clubs or better. Our incentives for clubs to continue striving for DCP achievements are still running.

For membership retention, each Area that achieves 100% of clubs with full April dues payment by 31 March 2017 will receive $50 cash credit. By full April dues, we mean the April dues payments must at least equal to Oct 2016 dues payments. Let us put in our effort to ensure that our members continue to retain their membership and continue to benefit from the Toastmasters program.

It is time of the year again when we review what we have achieved in the year 2016, and chart a new course to achieve even higher goals for 2017. I wish all our members a happy and prosperous New Year.

时间如白驹过隙,转眼间我们已经度过了现届的六个月,我很高兴在此宣布,截至11月30日止,我们已经有170名会员获颁胜任讲员(CC)荣衔,30名铜级高级讲员(ACB),10名银级高级讲员,11名金级高级讲员,77名胜任领袖(CL),43名铜级高级领袖(ALB),18名银级高级领袖(ALS),以及19名卓越讲员(DTM)。恭喜以上获颁各教育/领导荣衔的会员。

随着即将推出的新教育制度,我们已经熟悉的现有教育/领导奖励认证将会有很大的变化;新的教育/领导奖励认证将在过渡期之后完全取代现有的教育/领导奖励认证,而且现有的教育/领导奖励认证也将无法转移到新的教育/领导奖励认证制度。所以在此鼓励会友们尽快完成各自的现有教育/领导奖励认证,以期在现有教育/领导奖励认证下尽力获得最高的教育/领导荣衔。在此提醒会友们,80区域推出以下的奖励计划目前还在实行中。

在卓越讲演会计划(DCP)下,以下华语分会已经完成了至少5个卓越讲演会目标:

–      醉花林讲演会 (完成了9个目标)

–      中华总商会讲演会 (完成了9个目标)

–      茂桥讲演会(完成了9个目标)
恭贺以上分会的执委及会员,也提醒所有会员们,80区域推出的奖励计划目前还在实行中。

为鼓励现有会员继续缴费为合格会员,80区域推出新的奖励计划;分区达到所有所属分会于2017年3月31日前缴足4月份会费,那么该分区将获得$50 奖励(拨入区常年预算专供分区使用)。

2016年就将结束,接踵而来是新的一年,让我们检讨过去的一年,计划将来的一年,勇创新高。趁此佳节将临,我预祝所有会友们新年快乐。我将与大家共勉。
