Let’s Do Toastmasters Well – Angie Mullin
Program Quality Director - 2016-2017
Hello District 54
I am so excited and honored to be serving as Program Quality Director, and I am really looking forward to meeting and working with you this year.
I'd like to start the year off by encouraging a little bit of introspection and pose the following questions:
- Why did you join Toastmasters
- Since you joined, what has Toastmasters Done for you
- Where do you see yourself going in Toastmasters this year
- If you do not want to advance in Toastmasters, have you thought about what you can do to help others succeed
If you are like me, I joined Toastmasters because I wanted to learn how to speak in public. I just completed my Degree in Corporate Communications, yet I was terrified of speaking in front of people. today, I remain in Toastmasters for so many more reasons.
Toastmasters has helped me become more confident and given me opportunities to learn and grow. I would not have had these same types of opportunities in the job that I currently have today.
By seeking new opportunities and taking on leadership roles, I have developed skills that I am now able to apply in my career. I have also discovered along my personal journey that I have been blessed with making many, many new friends. Looking at the person I have become today, I can honestly say that I have gained so much from my active participation in Toastmasters.
As much as I have benefited from what the organization has to offer, I find that I get even more satisfaction out of Toastmasters when I am able to help others grow and succeed. Along the way, I have discovered that others succeed when we do Toastmasters Well.
So, when we talk about reaching Distinguished Club Program (DCP) Goals and becoming Distinguished Clubs, Areas, and Divisions, We are really talking about doing what it takes to meet the goals Toastmasters International has in place to ensure that every member receives an experience in Toastmasters like I have received. In a nutshell, we all succeed when we do Toastmasters well
Therefore, I would really like each of us to focus on our members and our program quality. What can we do to improve the overall experience for our club members?
To start, I would like to encourage you to consider implementing my checklist of to do Toastmasters Well during the month of September. Doing these things will really help your club get off to a wonderful start. If you have questions, your Area, Division and District Directors are here to help.
Yours In Toastmasters,
