We have a great success to celebrate just a few days into the Toastmasters 2020/2021 year. We already have our first new club chartered for the year and we are thrilled to have Mainhätten Toastmasters join the ranks of D95.
The founders or our brand new club in the District wrote to us to share their experience with getting started and chartered and celebrating their success:
Mainhätten Toastmasters is the first new Toastmasters club in District 95 within the Toastmasters season 2020/2021. We meet every second and fourth Monday of each month. Frankfurt am Main has now two German speaking Toastmasters clubs.
During a train trip from German speaking Fulda Toastmasters demo-meeting on the way back to Frankfurt the first idea for Mainhätten Toastmasters was born. In February 2020 we submitted the form to found Mainhätten Toastmasters club at Toastmasters International.
Five experienced Toastmasters from different Toastmasters clubs in Frankfurt started the planning for Mainhätten Toastmasters demo-meeting on March 9 2020. It was our first and only meeting in our planned location in Frankfurt. All the other meetings took place online or outdoor.
The second meeting was already planned as a hybrid meeting. Unfortunately the venue was closed and Mainhätten Toastmasters started to have online meetings. We had eight online meetings before Mainhätten Toastmasters chartered on July 20 2020.
Because of the geographically independence of online meetings members from Mainhätten Toastmasters could visit a lot of German speaking clubs. Some Toastmasters from other German speaking clubs in Europe visited meetings of Mainhätten Toastmasters as well.
The next meeting on August 24 will be another offline meeting with enthusiasm, fun and some speeches.Peter Blaskoda, VPPR Mainhätten Toastmasters
We had a lot of officers board meetings. That’s why we could plan the next steps for getting Mainhätten Toastmasters chartered very easily. Meanwhile there are 6 officers in our club officers board. At these officer board meetings we decided for example to have a website mainhaetten-toastmasters.de and a YouTube channel.
The members of Mainhätten Toastmasters are very happy to be an official part of District 95. Now after having our first outdoor meeting with the very special Charter-Party on August 10 2020 a new period for the club has already started.
We want all our members and officers to join in and congratulate our newest club in their chartering success and support them by visiting their website, or joining their upcoming meetings, or reading about them in the local press.
