Message from Division A Director: 

How can the old be new?

Yes, Division A was and will remain vibrant, dazzling!

We are the clubs east of highway 404 in the City of Markham, “Canada’s largest diverse community, with a rich cultural heritage, outstanding planning community services and vibrant local economy.” (Extracted from the city of Markham's website)

Our four enthusiastic, energetic Area Directors and I plan to avail of the wealth of this city and share it with our corporate and community Toastmasters clubs and members.

Having been awarded District 86's "Coach of the year" as well as the area director for the year 2018-2019, I am humbled to lead Division A. Thank you for the renewed confidence and the empowerment to continue for an opportunity to serve Toastmasters.
