Fellow D81 Division Directors and Area Directors,
We all join Toastmasters International for different reasons, most people join to better their communication skills, but there is more to our organization than that. Toastmasters International is also: “WHERE LEADERS ARE MADE.”
Leadership involves establishing a vision by providing the information, knowledge, and methods to realize that vision so that others will follow willingly. By joining Toastmasters International you are taking charge of your professional development, which you can apply amongst friends, family, and colleagues.
Becoming a leader is a matter of mentality and experience and Toastmasters is the perfect community to build both. It is a supportive and positive environment, filled with opportunities to plan events, build teams, and mentor others. All this fits perfectly in any of your respective Paths you are working on.
It is highly recommended to plan your district leadership journey as part of one of your Pathways projects. Stepping up and taking on a District Leadership position will give you ample opportunity to grow.
