District 65 Director

Ellen Pieklo

As we approach this year, I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and welcomed in the New Year with dreams, hopes, and visions of making every part of your life a little bit better.

District 65 has many ongoing events to help you in your own journey of communication and leadership.

  • Your District has given out close to $2,000 of incentives for completing Club Success Plans, increasing membership by 4 new members, and hosting open houses. We hope that these efforts have helped your clubs both in terms of club strength and providing you money from the TI store to purchase banners and/or club supplies that you may need. There is still time for your club to earn any of our incentives. The Club Success Plans are being accepted until January 31, 2018.

  • We continue to have new clubs in our charter process and our new members are excited to help build strong clubs within their corporations and communities.

  • District 65 has a roll-out date for Pathways, providing us with new and exciting technologies to help us build individual paths for our own growth. While new members will be able to start this program from its inception, longer-term members will be able to reassess some of their earlier skills and have the opportunity to make these even more memorable.

  • District 65 is halfway through the year and already we are looking for District Leaders for the next year. If you have not already served as a District Officer, it’s really the journey of a lifetime. You’ll get excited about contests, visiting clubs, meeting new members but you’ll also test some of your skills in terms of patience and observing clubs when you’d like to jump in and “fix” things, and meeting others like you, who are serving is district leaders. If you haven’t already submitted your name, think about this unique opportunity.

  • For those of you who do not have a DTM – Distinguished Toastmaster award, now is the time to work on that transition period to complete the program – if you’re halfway there. We have a Path To DTM Working Group here to help you.

  • If you have your DTM, we’re looking for mentors to help others obtain their DTM, before the Pathways transition period.

  • The Pathways program offers opportunities to serve as a Pathways Ambassador, Pathways Guide, or to help the Pathways Chief Ambassador in other areas.

  • The International and Tall Tales Speech Contests will be held this spring, with the District 65 International Speech Contest winner competing in Chicago, Illinois during August of 2018.

  • The Spring Conference will be held April 20-21, 2018 in Binghamton, New York. We’re looking at providing opportunities to bring our new members to the Conference and see some of our incredible speakers, meet our Region 9 International Director, Radhi Spear, and learn more about the Pathways program.

Whatever your aspirations are, Toastmasters continues to provide plenty of opportunities to learn, grow, and mentor others. It’s up to you to take that next step and commit to doing even more, as a member of District 65.

Wishing you a memorable year!

Sincerely,

Ellen Pieklo, DTM

District 65 Director
