Message from Area 91 Director

Is Area 91 for you? Do you live in Kitchener, Waterloo or Stratford? Then this is the right place. Our Area is composed of two open clubs: Concordia Toastmasters (Waterloo) and Speak Stratford (Stratford). If you are interested in building your public speaking skills, then this is where you want to go.

Our Area also hosts two corporate clubs. If you are a student, alumnus, faculty member or retiree of Conestoga College, then Conestoga College Toastmasters is also for you. If you are an employee with MTD Kitchener, then the MTD Toastmasters Club is your opportunity to start improving your public speaking. 

If you are interested in trying out a meeting, just drop by one of the clubs listed below. There is no commitment and you can start to get out of your comfort zone!

May Announcements

I hope things have been going well as we are about to enter into the last month of the Toastmasters year! I have heard great things about the Open House at Speak Stratford, and the toga party last month at MTD Kitchener!
 
Distinguished Club Program
We are close to becoming a Select Distinguished Area! Our District 86 Director informed me that due to all of your hard work we are close to becoming a Select Distinguished Area! All that is left is to have Speak Stratford add six more new/dual/reinstated members and MTD Kitchener achieve one more educational goal! I would say that is certainly within our reach! Thank you, Conestoga (Almost President's Distinguished!) and Concordia!
 
Change in Club Executive and Area Leadership
We are going to have a changing of the guard soon to a new club executive. Be sure to consider taking on a different role within your club this year or passing the torch to new members so they can share in those experiences. For those who are interested in becoming an Area Director and getting their Advanced Leader Silver, please let me know!
 
Club Realignment
Our last point is that we will be undergoing a re-alignment for this upcoming year (Starting July 2017). That means that for all of you, your Area will change.
 
Conestoga College - Area 92 - Division T
Concordia Club - Area 62 - Division W
Speak Stratford - Area 64 - Division W
MTD Kitchener - Area 61 - Division W
 
I believe that this makes more sense geographically, but I certainly appreciate all of your efforts this year to built a real sense of community within the club.
