Aloha District 49 Toastmasters!

Thank you to all of the clubs that submitted member renewal dues on time. We still have a few clubs out there that are still working on it so please continue to do so. If your members have not submitted their dues yet, encourage them to do so and submit them.
            We have the Division Speech contests happening on April 11 and 18.  April also means that our Spring Conference is right around the corner. The contests are free to attend; parking will cost $5 for all parking in the same building. Visit the Speech Contest page on the District 49 webpage for additional information on the location. Registration forms will be available on the District website.
The conference is on May 2, 2015 and being held at the familiar venue of the Pagoda Hotel Cest Si Bon ballroom. Join your fellow Toastmasters for fun, food, fellowship, and friends. Our featured speaker is Annabel Chotzen. We will also be having a presentation on the Revitalized Education Program update by our Chief Ambassador, Anne Myers, DTM, PDG. Make sure to bring cash or your checkbooks as we will also have our District Store where you can buy Toastmaster supplies for yourself or club and the silent auction.
Now is the time to continue working on your communication and leadership awards and help your club earn Distinguished Club status for this year.
Lastly tell your friends and family about Toastmasters, don’t keep it a secret and invite them to your next meeting.
Have a great April and I look forward to seeing you at the Spring Conference.  

Best Regards,


            Eliot DeRego, DTM
            District 49 Governor 2014-2015
