Message from the District Director

Challenge Yourself badge
The more I challenge myself, the more I have learned and grown. Toastmasters has helped me improve my skills and outlook through various challenges and opportunities. Over the last few years, I have had the pleasure of learning through hands-on experiences as the District Public Relations Officer, Program Quality Director and various other roles at the Club, Area, Division and District levels. There’s a sense of awe I felt when I started this journey, and that stays with me.

As your 2016-17 District 101 Director, my vision is to help every District member grow through new and exciting opportunities. There is much to create, improve and influence in a District, particularly a brand new one. It is an exciting time for all of us to be part of this incredible year as a new District. I would be honored to have an opportunity to lead our District members to success.

Mythili Prabhu, District 101 Director

Are you a Club Officer? Get trained!

Attending Club Officer Training (COT) helps Club Officers learn the ins and outs of their roles; it also gives Club Officers a chance to meet others serving in the same position in other clubs in the District.

Clubs which have all seven of their officers trained join the Lucky 7 and earn $50 in District Credit.

Upcoming Club Officer Training Sessions are listed here. Sessions will be held throughout the District.

Contact Program Quality Director Dave Spence at quality@d101tm.org if you have any questions.

Toastmasters Leadership Institute – July 16

District 101’s first ever Toastmasters Leadership Institute (TLI) happened on the morning of July 16 at the Biltmore Hotel in Santa Clara. It’s your chance to improve your leadership and communications skills by attending sessions about mentoring, evaluation, improvisation, and more. You’ll also be able to meet and mingle with other Toastmasters throughout the District and beyond. And, if you’re a Club Officer, it’s a great chance to attend Club Officer Training.
