Open Call for District Leaders

Dear Toastmaster,

Even though we are currently within our mid-year Toastmasters’ activities, we are already looking for

next year’s leaders. This is an open call for District 109 Leadership Nominations for 2021-2022, with

commencing date for the Leadership roles from the 1st of July 2021.

Bobby Unser once said, “Success is where preparation and opportunity meet”.

Toastmasters International is the perfect environment for preparation and future success. Is there a safer

and more supportive environment where we can improve our leadership and communication skills?

Serving as a District Leader will allow you to receive valuable training regarding your leadership and

communication skills. It will give you the opportunity to lead teams and materialize District projects. This

is a rewarding process that also influences other members’ learning experiences. As a District Leader,

you will get the chance to meet regularly with other District leaders internationally. . Furthermore, serving

as a District Leadership role supports recognition towards becoming a Distinguished Toastmaster (DTM).
