My heartfelt thanks to our fellow Toastmasters for giving me the mandate to serve as the District Director for 2015-2016. My term as Lieutenant Governor Marketing 2013-2014 and Lieutenant Governor Education & Training 2014-2015 were both a rewarding experience because of all of you, fellow Toastmasters!
Our motto this term is Make Members Matter. As we know, our clubs, areas, divisions and district can be successful and achieve excellent results only if almost all of our members are happy and satisfied.
This motto was proposed by Laurel Power DTM, Division Advisor and adopted by Past Division D Governor Susan Wong DTM. It has been used by many Past Division D Governors, including me, as Division D Governor in 2005-2006. It is my honour to continue the same for District 80 term 2015-2016.
My most favourite story is the “Starfish” by Loren Eiseley. Being in Toastmasters for the past 16 years, serving as Club Officer & District Officer, my great satisfaction is to see Toastmasters making a difference to other people's lives. Members are like the Starfish in the organization as they are surrounded by people who help them become more confident, knowledgeable speakers/leaders and speak better which ultimately improve their lives. They “Make Members Matter”.
This new term, we target to achieve our President Distinguished District goals by 31 May 2016. How can we make it happen? The answer is very simple:
Have our Vision; Set our Goals; Take Action; Monitor our Progress; Achieve and Celebrate together with District 80 Toastmasters
Let’s continue to Make Members Matter, together we learn and grow!
我们希望本届能在2016年5月31日之前，达到80区域所定下的 “卓越区域” 目标。
