Tell me what you're looking for
It’s my honor and pleasure to serve as the first ever District Director of Founder’s District. My vision for this year is to help you achieve your goals and to keep Founder’s District focused on its mission, which is to build new clubs and to assist all clubs in achieving excellence.
Together, we can bring about the changes you are looking for. For example, one of the goals for this year is to inspire more leaders, mentors, and coaches to step up to the plate to serve our members. That’s why I chose the theme, “Join and Serve to Prosper.” Serving in Toastmasters is such a wonderful learning opportunity.
Many members in Toastmasters complete 10 speeches and receive the Competent Communicator (CC) award. They believe they have learned it all, so they leave the organization. In my humble opinion, serving in a District leadership role after obtaining the CC award is one of the best ways for members to learn and prosper.
We are at the beginning of the new Toastmasters year and I hope you are all enjoying your experience as members. I invite you to GET INVOLVED in Toastmasters' activities within as well as outside your club to support all Founder’s District members in achieving excellence.
I challenge you to continue to grow by achieving your own educational and leadership goals. Continued growth -- personally and professionally -- translates to a Successful YOU, which leads to successful Clubs, Areas, Divisions, and District. Let all members from Pasadena to San Clemente work together to grow quality Founder’s District Toastmasters for 2015-2016 and beyond!
It is my honor and privilege to present the Gene Beckwith award for 2014-2015 to Linda and Richard Daugherty. They have served as the official district photographers for the past three years, but served in that role for several years before that. They have literally taken thousands of pictures of our members at LACE, Area/Division contests, district meetings, special occasions, and conferences. If it had to do with the district and our members, you can guarantee that Linda and Richard would be there - with cameras and smiles.
In order for us to utilize our time more effectively at the Business Meeting on Saturday, April 25, we have put together some of the routine items discussed into a Consent Agenda. These routine items are packaged and accepted as a group. In this package are items that do not need any discussion or a vote. Any District Officer can request the removal of an item from the Consent Agenda if they feel that we should vote on it independently. However, the idea here is to be able to focus on items that need more attention and limit the time spent on the items that are general in nature.
