Proposal to Split the District
Version 4.0 dated 4.7.15

Proposal

The Founder’s District Split Committee, as appointed by Linda Ulrich, DTM, District Governor, proposes that Founder’s District be split using the 22 Freeway (or thereabouts) as the official split boundary. As of 3.21.15, the new boundaries would be as follows*:

The New District boundaries would be as indicated in Appendix 1

  • To be inclusive of all of the clubs in Division B, Division E and Division H
  • To be inclusive a portion of the clubs from Division C and Division D
  • The allocated Divisions will be renamed accordingly A through D/E and the clubs will be re-aligned in the manner that best supports the members
  • The total number of clubs in the New District will be approximately 118

The Founder’s District boundaries would be as indicated in Appendix 2

  • To be inclusive of all of the clubs in Division A, Division F and Division G
  • To be inclusive a portion of the clubs from Division C and Division D
  • The allocated Divisions will be renamed accordingly A through D/E and the clubs will be re-aligned in the manner that best supports the members
  • The total number of clubs in the New District will be approximately 109

As per Toastmasters International and the charter for Founder’s District, the District that contains Smedley Club #1 will remain named as Founder’s District. The New District will be named according to Toastmasters International’s number system.

Please reference Appendix 3 for visual representation of what the borders for the New District and Founder’s District will potentially be.

*The division of the clubs will be adjusted prior to the vote on April 25th to account for changes in locations and number of clubs in the Divisions

Process for the Split:
If the proposal to move forward with the split is approved at the April 25, 2015 Business Meeting, at the following Founder’s District Spring Conference, one District Director would be elected for the 2016-2017 term. But instead of one set of secondary officers (Program Quality Director and Club Growth Director), the District would elect two sets -one for Founder’s and one for the new District. So for the 2016-2017 term, there would be 5 top officers in Founders. Division Directors would still be elected and Area Directors would still be appointed by the District Director.

The following year (2017-2018) the split would officially take place with each District electing a District Director and other officers.
