2009-2010 District 31 Governor!

As the incoming District 31 Governor my theme for the 2009-2010 Toastmaster year is
"TAKE CENTER STAGE" ... because I believe the more you "TAKE CENTER STAGE" the better speaker and better leader you will become!
"If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader". John Quincy Adams

This is a famous quote and it was sent to me in the form of a card by International Director, T. S. who wanted to show his support on my election to the District 31 Governor seat! It is greatly appreciated! Looking forward to reconnecting with TS and his team at the TM Convention!

Today is my first day on my 365 day journey as the 2009-2010 District 31 Governor - which begins on July 1, 2009 and ends on June 30, 2010. I wanted to post more today about being elected to the District Governor seat and add more testimonials - but I must keep this short.

I think that I will begin this Toastmaster year with posting my district duties to keep a time line.

Today I ordered Area & Division Governor Badges, Signed the Hilton Hotel contract for our 09/10Conferences as well as the deposit check. I also worked on the District 31 calendar and plan to send it into WHQ tomorrow.

See some comments by my fellow TM's below - I will post more and add as the year goes along.

I highly recommend the leadership track !
