I would like to take a moment to thank all of our District Leaders for the amazing job they have done organizing our speech contests. Congratulations to all of the members who have competed and will be moving on to the next contest. As a result of the efforts from the competitors, the volunteers and the organizers, it certainly raises the bar in District 21. Moving forward, the biggest challenge is for us to help our clubs grow and become stronger. There are a lot of District Incentives to inspire our members take on this challenge. If your club needs help in membership or with the Distinguished Club Program, please don’t hesitate to reach out for support. This is always the fun time of year when we see our efforts and those around us making District 21 an opportunity for new people to join and reap the benefits of Toastmasters. Are you ready for the challenge! Let’s do it…

Hello D21 members,

How are you?

Some good news: we have chartered another club in Richmond. Thanks to Area 53 Director Charnél Izaks for the lead of starting a new club , we have the Demo Meeting scheduled for March 18th. Thank you to Area 50 Director Ajibike Ige for sharing the lead for another new club in Surrey.

What we need from you is to ensure that RENEWALS are completed in March. It would be a shame to miss out on your club’s distinguished status because the membership prerequisite was not achieved. Start now with renewals of the existing members and do not wait till the end of March. The incentive awaits you!

Best wishes,

Shakeel Gaya
