Fellow members and friends of District 109,

Let me introduce you to our District Director for 2021-2022. Lilian first joined Toastmasters in 2000 out of a desire for self-development. She has remained an enthusiastic member over these last 21 years because of her sincere belief in this organization and all the core values it stands for. All these years, she has never missed a chance to acknowledge the advantages of being part of this unique community. During that time, the opportunities to utilize her experience to support her fellow members. A big believer in giving back is why she has served in several District roles to date, noting that she is just completing her year as the PQD.

Her vision is to use her experience to give our District a boost by finding innovative ways, along with her team, to ensure that we remain leaders in education, member retention, and growth. She hopes to achieve this by being relatable, open-minded, and present as a District Director, finding ways to encourage everyone to believe in their abilities regardless of their age, gender, or nationality.

Lilian Shaftacola

District 109 Director 2021-2022
