Excellence in Marketing Award!

Excellence can be obtained if more than others think is wise;...risk more than others think is safe;...dream more than others think is practical;...expect more than others think is possible.” Anonymous

Ending the District 31 2007-2008 Toastmasters year with “Excellence in Marketing” award! It was an honor and privilege "TO LEAD and TO SERVE" District 31 as the 2007-2008 Lt. Governor of Marketing!

Friends I want to share that on Friday August 13, 2008 at the Toastmasters International Convention in Calgary, Alberta, Canada inside the Calgary’s TELUS Convention Centre at approximately 1:30 PM during the “Hall of Fame” Ceremony I will receive the “Excellence in Marketing” award from the International President, Chris Ford, DTM!!

“Excellence is the unlimited ability to improve
the quality of what you have to offer”
Perry Paxton

And of course I am excited and thrilled to have met the marketing goals for BOTH club building and membership (per caps) BUT I really accept this award on behalf of the MANY members in District 31 who helped and assisted me with meeting our marketing goals!!

Some of my "STAND OUT" Top Performers are -

My Co-Dues Are Dues Coordinators - Tien Truong and Gary Budiansky,
My seven (A-G) Division Demo Team Leaders from – Ray Gatti, Doug Sheadel, Tom Kirschner, Ben Lappen, Sheila Sullivan, Dale Averill, Ed Skurka.
My Club Coaches - (incoming LGM) Bil Lewis and Judy Artley,
My Membership Building Committee.

And especially the MANY Toastmaster members who invited friends and family members to Club meetings, took a roles at our Demo Meetings, helped with Chartering Paper work, submitted their membership dues “on time” to their club Treasurers, “Shared Their Toastmasters Stories”, Assisted at Toastmasters Booths in both Massachusetts and Rhode Island and helped get the WORD out about TOASTMASTERS!!

Some Nice Testimonials from Members in my District 31
