District 26 Leaders,
This is the time of year to consider how to honor one of your outstanding members for their contribution to the club and to the Toastmasters Program.
Clubs may use any criteria to select your recipient but they must be an active member of the club. A legitimate use of club money will be considered and an appropriate gift may be made to this recipient.
The club selection will be submitted as a nominee to the Area Governor for consideration as Area Toastmaster of the Year. They will then recommend one Area Toastmaster to the Division Governor for consideration as Division Toastmaster of the Year. Finally, the Division Governor will submit one name to the District Governor for consideration as District Toastmaster of the Year.
Attached are tools to assist in the selection process. This is more than a numbers game; other factors can and should be addressed in your statement as to why this person should be considered for this honor.
How and when the Area Governor recognizes and presents the award within the area is at his/her discretion.
Presentation of Division and District Toastmaster of the year will be made at the District 26 Fall Conference on 9 Nov 13.
Recommend all Toastmaster of the Year winners be recognized by sending a photo and short write-up to the District Public Affairs Officer (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Clubs must send their honorees names to the Area Governor by June 1st.
Divisions must provide their honorees names to the me by June 30th.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns regarding this process.
