Welcome Letter TI

Welcome Letter – Toastmasters International

from Mike Storkey, DTM – International President

June 29, 2017

Dear Toastmaster,

Each year, clubs have the opportunity to vote on important matters that impact the future of our organization at the Annual Business Meeting. This includes international officer and director elections as well as proposals to amend the Bylaws of Toastmasters International and the Club Constitution for Clubs of Toastmasters International. Clubs in good standing are entitled to two (2) votes for each election and proposal.

The Annual Business Meeting will be held on August 26 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Your voice is important, and you have a significant role to play in this process. Start by learning about the candidates and proposed amendments. At your next club meeting, discuss which candidates best meet the future needs of Toastmasters International and which proposals you are in agreement with. Make it official with a vote to determine how the club’s votes will be cast.

If no one in your club is planning to attend the meeting, you may designate a proxy-holder to cast the club’s votes. Proxy-holders are required to vote in the manner a club designates; if a voting preference is not designated, the proxy-holder may vote in their own best interest.

More information on voting by proxy will be emailed to club presidents, secretaries and liaisons in July. If you have any questions about the voting process, please email proxyinfo@toastmasters.org.

Sincerely,

Mike Storkey, DTM

International President
