Written by

Fellow Toastmasters,

The agenda item to appoint Lionnel Yamentou as the Division E Director at the DEC (District Executive Council) meeting on August 26, 2015 was tabled because of lacking a quorum. Following the Toastmasters International guidelines, District Administrative Manager, Linda Denton, followed up with an email vote process. More than 2/3 of the DEC members responded. The result is to appoint Lionnel Yamentou as the Division E Director.

Congratulations to Division E Director Lionnel Yamentou.

Best Regards,

Pan Kao, DTM, PhD
Founder's District Director

It’s now time to plan and act on upcoming Fall speech contests - Tall Tales and Evaluation Speech Contests! If you are unfamiliar with the Tall Tales format, check out these videos of our District Competitors from 2013!

Everyone has fun will Tall Tales!
Imagine how much you can refine your skills by competing in either one or both!  

  • As an evaluation speech contestant you will improve your listening and analytical skills as you prepare your speech evaluation.  Then, as you give your opinion on the test speaker’s presentation, you are giving your delivery skills a chance to grow even more.  
  • As tall tales contestants, you have the opportunity to stretch your imagination outside your usual boundaries and come up with a story that would entertain, provoke, or mesmerize the audience.

Benefiting from Toastmasters?

Written by

Fellow Toastmasters,
How do you benefit from Toastmasters' programs? Do you have a story to share with fellow members in our district? Send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you have a personal story to share. If your article is selected and published in our website or quarterly newsletters, you'll receive a $25 Toastmasters gift certificate.

By trade, I'm an IT project manager. Leadership and communication are two must-have job skills for a project manager. Like most of you, I joined a Toastmasters club to learn communication skills. As it turned out, I found that Toastmasters was actually a better place to learn and practice leadership skills.

In other words, Toastmasters programs provide a safe environment for us to learn both communication and leadership skills. In Toastmasters, five clubs are grouped together as an Area (approximately 100 members), five areas form one Division (25 clubs, approximately 500 members), and the Founder's District has 8 Divisions (225 clubs, approximately 4500 members).
