Message from the District Director

In this year, I invite you all to set new goals, higher than ever, and get engaged, more than ever, with your clubs and with District 101 Toastmasters. Let this year be your year, where you amplify your learnings and find consistent value in your Toastmasters meetings.

When I joined my first Toastmasters club, I was encouraged to explore what goes on beyond the club level. I was asked to be a timer at an Area Contest and I gladly said yes! I was happy I did, since it allowed me to network with several other Toastmasters members and leaders and provided me opportunities to develop new skills. From there on, it only got better as I began to take advantage of the various events that happen within District 101. 

I would like each of you to explore and Expand Your Horizons, our District theme this year, and realize the full potential of the benefits that Toastmasters has to offer. Be it through delivering speeches, giving evaluations, leading Table Topics, participating in educational events, being a club officer or organizing a club or District event, there are always a multitude of opportunities for each of us to go past (Expand) our set goals (Horizons) and push ourselves higher.

As we continue our journey, I wish you all success and strongly encourage you to Expand Your Horizons and aspire to achieve more. Let’s work together to Expand our Horizons and experience the true value of our Toastmasters membership. Feel free to contact me at to find out more about the various opportunities within District 101. 

Pavan Datla, District Director
