We are #2 of all districts in the world regarding annual business meeting proxies!
The quasi-official ‘Mike Raffety blog’ proxy report rates us at rank 2 of all districts in the Toastmasters World for the first time! Meaning 100% of all active clubs in our District 95 have assigned a proxy for the annual business meeting!
THANK YOU ALL
Many thanks to everybody who has contributed to this achievement. First to all our club presidents and club secretaries who have taken the time to assign their votes.
But they might not have been aware of this if our AD’s and DivD’s wouldn’t have taken action to remind and inform the proxy holders. Thank you all, who have taken action.
Last but definitely not least we have to specifically thank our leader of the ‘D95 Proxy Hunt’ Project Mr. Stefan Gruß (CGD & DTM and still not on facebook) who compiled every day a statistical overview of the progress on our D95 Website (tm95.org) and never rested to sending out email reminders.
WHY THIS ACHIEVEMENT IS IMPORTANT
It gives D95 a strong voice at WHQ and at the Board of Directors. It simply shows that the communication is working. And we’re developing s a close connection from our District (ADs, DivDs and Core Team) to our clubs.
Additionally, it shows that a first spark of awareness has arrived at each and every club in our District:
Toastmasters is and can be more than club business. It’s a worldwide family on every level: Clubs, Areas, Divisions, Districts, Region and worldwide. A family who shares experiences and cares for personal development for each member.
I’m happy this is a great start supporting this year’s leadership mantra: ‘Let’s grow together!’
I’m happy and proud of our District. Thank you!
