Start the Year STRONG

Written by

DanCossack

Start the year off right with a membership building program for your club. The Smedley Award begins August 1 and ends September 30. It's simple. Add five new, dual, or reinstated members to your club between August 1 and September 30 and receive a "Smedley Award" ribbon, named in honor of the founder of Toastmasters, which you can display on your club's banner.

Winning clubs will be revealed on the Toastmasters International web site.

Our focus this year will be to build new clubs and grow our membership, sharing the benefits of Toastmasters to more people in our District. Do you have an idea for a new Toastmasters club? Or know someone who is interested in starting a club in their area? Tell us about it and we'll help you get it started.

Happy New 2015-2016 Toastmasters Year!

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.

2015 Spring Conference Consent Agenda

Written by

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.

Please take a few moments to review the attached package. If you have any concerns, please send your request in writing to Gwen Earle, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., prior to our Business Meeting.

 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.

You Make Me Happy

Written by

What helps a club retain membership? Interesting question! The answer is just as interesting, depending on whom you ask. If you ask me, I run, not walk to my weekly Toastmaster meeting for my weekly one-hour therapy session! I wholeheartedly enjoy the camaraderie between our members. New and seasoned members experience a safe and encouraging environment where personal growth is watered like a delicate spring flower. Although encouragement, positive feedback, and growth should be expected of any Toastmasters club, Tools 2 Lead club (Club 921159), based out of Department of Child Support Services in Santa Ana, takes their camaraderie to new levels!
