Hello Fellow Toastmasters, 


As you know we are going through a time of uncertainty and uncharted waters with regard to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19). What we do know is that health and safety of our  members are of primary concern.  To that end, The Board of Directors of Toastmasters International has made the following decisions regarding current and upcoming District events, effective immediately:
  • Area, Division, or District events can no longer be conducted in person, on or prior to June 1, 2020. As an alternative, we encourage  Clubs, Areas, Divisions, and Districts to host events online to help clubs and members through this difficult time. We will share information on online meetings.
  • Each District must conduct its Annual District Council Meeting (also known as the Business meeting at the Annual Conference) online, rather than in person, on or prior to June 1, 2020.  Our virtual meeting will take place on Saturday, May 16 at 9:30 AM. Details to follow on registering and procedure for proxy voting.
  • Each District Executive Committee  (consisting of District director, Program Quality Director, Club Growth Director, Administration manager, Finance manager, Public relations manager, Division directors, Area directors, and Immediate Past District Director) is authorized to determine whether they will continue to conduct or cancel Speech Contests for the 2019-2020 contest cycle. Each District is responsible for notifying World Headquarters of their decision. We will have a special teleconference this week to vote and will then advise the full membership of the resulting decision.
 We will have more information on how we will proceed with the District conference later this week. 
Please feel free to reach out with any questions.
