Written by

Congratulations to the members of Union Bank Monterey Park Toastmasters club, winner of the Founder's Film Award of Fall 2013. Hiram Araoz and Janice Wong accepted the award on behalf of the club at the District Conference on November 9. {youtube}Fb4Hnepj8AM|450|320{/youtube}

When you attend a Founder’s District event, while everyone else is at the front of the room delivering a presentation, or receiving certificates, awards, and acknowledgements, take a moment to glance over your shoulder to the man and woman who are standing at the back of the room, often on top of a chair, with eyes affixed to the viewfinder of a really nice looking camera, and you will likely see Richard or Linda Daugherty capturing that moment in time with their cameras.

The Rhythm of Teamwork

Written by

LindaUlrich 2Do you hear the drums? It’s “The Rhythm of Teamwork!” Come to the Founder’s District Fall Conference on Saturday, November 9, to discover how something as simple as drumming can enhance your communication and leadership skills and help your clubs develop strong, cohesive teams. The Fall Conference will be at the La Mirada Holiday Inn and Conference Center. Registration opens at 7:00 a.m. with a continental breakfast. The program starts promptly at 8:30 a.m., but be there early—we have some surprises for you. Check out the Conference Information page for more information about our keynote presentation, our C&L Recipient (a non-Toastmasters related person or organization that provides leadership and communication in our communities), the education sessions, the business meeting, the Hall of Fame luncheon, and, oh, yes, the Evaluation and Tall Tales Contests. Did I mention there will be opportunity drawing gifts, a silent auction, the bookstore, and the Drum Café booth? If you register before the early-bird date of November 2, you only pay $65 PLUS you get a free opportunity drawing ticket. Come be part of the fun and excitement!

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!

Fall Conference 2013 Opportunities

Written by

Communication & Leadership recipient Drum Café will put on a unique program where drumming is used to break down barriers, inspire people, and bring them together. There will be a limited number of souvenir drums for you to purchase at the conference. You'll be able to relive the thrill, unleash that tribal warrior (or princess) inside you, and experience, ‘The Rhythm of Teamwork’ at any time.

Here's a great opportunity for you! We need opportunity drawing gifts for the District Conference. Please ensure that the value of all donated prizes falls into the $20-$25 price range. We always ask the Divisions to donate two opportunity drawing gifts, but times are lean. Founder's District members, you are our only hope! If you have something bigger that you would like to donate, we will be having a silent auction. We need to know what the item is and its suggested retail value. Vendors who donate items or services will receive a ‘receipt of charitable contribution letter’ that can be submitted with their income tax returns. Contact District Opportunity Drawing Chair, Bill Harmon (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). If necessary, we can make arrangements to pick up the donation from you.

Need some low-cost publicity for your club? We are offering business-card-sized advertisements in the Fall Conference Program for $15. Your card should have the Club Name and Club Number, the day, time, and location of your meetings, and a contact person's name, email address, and/or phone number. These advertisements will be placed throughout the Fall Conference program. We prefer higher quality, black and white graphic layouts only. Please submit your ad to Diane Beall (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) by Friday, October 25. Payments can be submitted by mail to: Founder's District, P.O. Box 4317, Irvine, CA 92616-4317, or in-person at the Fall Conference."
