Aloha District 49 Toastmasters!

Aloha and welcome to the 2014-2015 Toastmaster year. My name is Eliot DeRego and I was elected as your District Governor for the coming year. I look forward to serving as the leader of the District along with Charles Mole Jr, Lt. Governor Education and Training and Caron Ling, Lt Governor Marketing. We are still working on plans for the coming year, but whatever we come up with will be for the betterment of the District. We will share our ideas with the other district leaders who in turn will share it down the line to the club officers and to you, our members.
Congratulations to all of our clubs that earned Distinguished Club, Select Distinguished Club, or President’s Distinguished Club status for the 2013 - 2014 year.
We had 8 people earning their Distinguished Toastmaster Award this past year as well. Congratulations to all of them on their accomplishment.
We had a record year for membership with 606 new members joining our clubs, but we also had just as many not renew. I encourage and ask our club officers to find out why members have not renewed their membership and see if there is something you or the club can do to bring them back.
We have our next Club Officer training on July 12th at the University of Phoenix, Downtown Honolulu campus. If you did not attend the June 14th session, hopefully you can join us at this one. Look for more information at the following web link: Training Information
We have a busy year ahead of us with one of the Top 5 International Officers from Toastmasters International World Headquarters coming to visit us this year. More details will follow when it’s in place. Would you like to be given your DTM medal by our expected dignitary? Find out what you need to do to finish it and get to work.
Toastmasters International is still working on the Revitalized Education Program and there aren’t many details out yet, other than it is now currently planned to be rolled out to new members in July 2015. As information comes out we will distribute the information via the leadership or by Club Ambassador visits to your club.
