Division E is made up of 18 clubs across 5 areas. Out of the 18 clubs, 2 are community clubs and the rest Corporate. The Division is the first new division formed from splitting Division C and absorbing the geographic area south of the Mississauga town line boundary that was previously Area B35, B36 & B37 from Division B. As the first newly formed Division, numbering of the areas started in the next numbered grouping of E1, E2 etc.
Message from Division E Director
I am excited and thrilled to be part of this new division which has come about due to the transformation that D86 has undergone in 2019 and the vision that our District executive have for building and sustaining strong and vibrant Toastmasters clubs. The community clubs have been the mainstay of Toastmasters for generations, however, corporate clubs are as important and are part of the Toastmaster experience for many people. I understand the challenges faced by many corporate clubs, due to timing and work deadlines, last minute meetings, site relocation etc., I had my fair share of them as I started my Toastmasters journey as a member of a corporate club. However, I’m convinced that as more and more of our members embrace the Pathways Program, corporate clubs will stand tall alongside our Community clubs poised to fulfill the Toastmaster mission to empower individual to become more effective communicators and leaders.
I’m excited to take on the role as leader of the division and as this year unfolds my goal is to visit as many clubs as possible within the division, meeting members, listening to their ideas and celebrating their club successes. My vision is that our division E will be the Division of Excellence where members are empowered and engaged to become the best they can be.
