亲爱的讲演会同好:
新年快乐!

从昨天学习, 为今天生活, 寄望予明天–爱因斯坦

从我们收到的面簿及whatsapp的讯息中,各位肯定度过了一个愉悦的岁末假期。我们在应得的休假中,自我放松、充电、探讨新的途径及机会。
在与2016挥手道别之际,我们兴奋地迎接2017年的到来。缅怀过去,展望未来本来就是人之常情。让我们以感恩的情怀感谢在过去的一年我们获得的学习成果及所建立的深厚友情。 在这许多的福报中,我们最感恩的是与各位讲演会同好一起度过的充实日子。

虽然如此,我们依然有须要继续冲刺的地方。有6个分会尚未呈交10月份的会费。感到遗憾的是其中有几个分会决定关闭。这对本区域有着重大的影响。我们正在想法子缓和及挽救这个局面。尚未呈交会费的分会是:

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

2015-2016 Hall of Fame

District Recognition
Recognising performance excellence at all levels!

Many of our Toastmaster members in District 80 deserve to be recognised for their achievements in 2015-16.

The various Distinguished Programs recognise those clubs, areas, divisions that meet Toastmasters International’s growth and educational goals. The programs serve as management tools for membership recruitment and retention strategies, club growth and educational award achievement.

As part of the district success strategic plan, we created various awards to encourage and motivate our members and leaders to go for that extra mile. May these awards spur them on to more profound performance in the years to come for the benefit of their fellow Toastmasters.

Find out more about the District 80 2015-2016 Hall of Fame.
Click here to download the Hall of Fame Booklet!

Most awards had been given out at Divisions’ events last term and during the First Club Officers’ Training Events in this term.

The award recipients, in the booklet page 1 to page 12, will be recognized during the Hall of Fame ceremony, on 22nd October, just after the District 80 Humorous Speech and Evaluation Contests.

Looking forward to have the most memorable Hall of Fame with all Award Recipients!

Club Growth Director’s Message : Be A Toastmaster

cgd

Toastmasters!!!!

You want to be Financially Successful???

“Be a Toastmaster”

 

 

85% of your financial success is due to your personality and ability to communicate, negotiate and lead. Shockingly, only 15% is due to technical knowledge.

– Carnegie Institute of Technology

 

So, be a Toastmaster, encourage and motivate others to share the benefits and rewards from the “Empowering Members’ Journey”.

 

A “Big Thank You” to all Toastmasters and Clubs who have paid their subscription on or before 30 September 2016. You and your club will be of good standing and may participate in contests, eligible to receive educational awards and other rewards, like the Smedley Award.

Charter more clubs and receive more rewards then ever before.

HOT NEWS

 ** First 10 Clubs to recruit 10 members each between  01 October 2016 to 31 October 2016 will be rewarded with a “Special Trophy”

Program Quality Director’s Message : Remember Your Promise

rememberyourpromise

I am so delighted to announce that our members have been diligently presenting their prepared speech projects and fulfilling their respective leadership roles in the past three months since the beginning of the current term. As of 26 September 2016, we have awarded 103 CC’s, 15 ACB’s, 9 ACS’s, 10 ACG’s, 45 CL’s, 25 ALB’s, 18 ALS’s and 19 DTM’s. That’s a total of 249 education/leadership awards, of which there are 9 Triple Crown Award winners. Congratulations to all the award achievers.

District 80’s incentives for members to continue striving for education and leadership excellence are still running.

On club DCP achievement, the following clubs have attained 5 or more than 5 DCP goals:

  • NUS Toastmasters Club (8 DCP goals met)
  • IBM Toastmasters Club Singapore (6 DCP goals met)
  • Ang Mo Kio C.C. Club (6 DCP goals met)
  • Tampines Changkat Toastmasters (6 DCP goals met)
  • Buona Vista Toastmasters Club (6 DCP goals met)
  • Toastmasters Club Of Singapore (6 DCP goals met)
  • SIM I Club (5 DCP goals met)
  • Braddell Heights II Toastmasters Club (5 DCP goals met)
  • SCCCI Mandarin Club (5 DCP goals met)
  • TLCS Club (5 DCP goals met)
  • Bharathiyar Toastmasters Club (5 DCP goals met)

Congratulations to all club officers and members of the above clubs for qualifying as Distinguished Clubs or better.

All of us can achieve more by committing ourselves to our undertaking when we joined the Toastmasters program, our promise as a Toastmaster. I quote our International President Mike Storkey DTM:

“It is regrettable that today so few members recall the vital promise we all made when we first joined—the simple set of guidelines that, if we made the commitment to observe, would ensure that individually and collectively we would all reap the benefits of the Toastmasters program. Imagine how your club would look if we all made the commitment to fulfill the responsibilities outlined in the simple 10-point promise. With our current drive to achieve quality clubs, meetings and service to our members, what better way to achieve these goals than commit to the promise?”
