DG Honoring Our Proud Tradition… Looking Towards the Future Jerry Keast On July 1, 2011 District 66 celebrates our 50th Year, so join me in honoring those that served our District so proudly. To me that is the individual member who stepped out of their comfort zone to join an organization dedicated to improving the lives of others by simply caring enough to help each other reach their personal goals.

friendships and personal bonds that allow you to share challenges and TOGETHER overcome them. Your Area Governor is valuable resources as such are you warmly embracing them to join your family activities and challenging them to assist you should you need it.

Dr. Ralph Smedley embraced that simple truth in a Los Angeles Library basement in 1924 and through the multiple faces of individual toastmasters through its 85 year history held firm to the believe that “Together we

As such, I challenge each District member, including myself, to consider how WE contribute to our mutual success. Member Level – Recognize and embrace individual member’s uniqueness and with an open hand encourage each other to improve themselves and assist them in reaching their goals. Club Level – Recognize the value of working on the Distinguished Club Plan and plan meetings that are dedicated to meeting your plan TOGETHER.

LGET Alan Tuten The term "a cut above" comes from a dated practice whereby contestants in a race, or in tryouts, would be ranked on a board. A line would be drawn, the cutoff line, separating two groups - those that could continue on in competition and those disqualified from further consideration. Those above the line were "a cut above". Fellow Toastmasters, it's hard to believe that we are 75% of the way through another year. With only three months remaining, I want to challenge you and your clubs to complete the year "a cut above". Consider some examples: If you are on track to have four CCs in your club by year end, why not canvass your members and strive for a fifth. If your goal is to recruit eight members, giving you two points in the DCP, why not recruit ten. If as a member you have not yet held a club leadership role, why not make next year the year you serve, just as you have been served. Perhaps as a club, this would be a great time to reinforce the use of the CL manuals, and bring in more than two leadership awards this year. Whether you finish the year with more than 20 members or fewer ... whether you complete five points in the DCP or not ... I think you'll agree that you still have some goals that you can not only reach but exceed. Why not do so, and finish the year "a cut above"? Thanks for all you do to serve your clubs and your fellow members.

LGM Daphne Hill We are coming down the home stretch and we’re racing to the GREEN! This year we’ve adopted an overarching concept of moving clubs from red to green. We’re infusing the District with new clubs and we’re coaching clubs with less than twelve members to reach for distinguished status. If we each stand true to the Toastmaster’s Promise, each club CAN achieve Distinguished status by June 30, 2011. Achieving Distinguished Status

We’re a club with fewer than 20 members. Can WE be distinguished? YES YOU CAN! Here’s how: Get your club dues in – do it now! Each club member commits to bring a friend, coworker, or family member to each meeting. If four members bring four guests to every club meeting, that’s potentially eight opportunities per month to increase membership. You’re on your way to charter strength or a net gain of five members. Set goals ≈ Who will receive CCs between now and June? ≈ Who will receive CLs between now and June? ≈ Who will receive ACs between now and June? Set the schedule so each person selected can reach his/ her goal on time. Come to each meeting prepared to present (in case there’s extra time or someone is unable to present – you will be prepared to work on your goal). Schedule a speech-a-thon where you focus on giving speeches (with evaluations) so goals can be met. Visit another club and look for ideas to make your club meetings more engaging.

It’s Tax Time Ian Henry, District Treasurer I know it is possible you are reading this, feeling good because you have filed your tax return, or perhaps you are feeling not so good because you have not yet filed. If you are Treasurer of your club you should have filed your club’s tax return too. It is form 990-N and it was due on March 15, 2011. If you have filed it, congratulations. If you have not you could get the instructions at Toastmasters.org. www.toastmasters.org/Members/News/Newsletters/ LeaderLetter/March2011.aspx. The instructions are un-

der the Club Deadlines heading. You will probably already have heard that the next six months dues are to be paid to World Headquarters by April 1, 2011. Unless those fees are paid for you by your employer in a corporate club, your club’s Treasurer should have asked you for a check. If he or she has not, perhaps it would not hurt to remind the Treasurer of the fact. Paying dues on time is one of the points for your Distinguished Club award.

Central Division Governor Glennys E. Fleming Since January 2011, the Central Division has had lots of reasons to celebrate, which will continue throughout the 2010-2011 Toastmaster year in the Central Division, because we believe that Learning is Fun—Let’s Celebrate by Having Fun!

Eastern Division Governor Peter Moyer One area that I hear the most complaints at work and even at Toastmasters is in the area of communication. Wow, Toastmasters are supposed to be great communicators? Sure they are! Have you ever asked someone to fill a role only to get no response? Did you ever get a positive response to fill a role and have that person not show up to the meeting? Have you ever been this person? I have a couple thoughts on communication to share. Communication can be helpful and can be hurtful. Communication is helpful

when it is prompt, honest and clear. Communication can be hurtful when it is not prompt, not honest and not clear. We are in Toastmasters not only to overcome our “fear of public speaking� but to be better communicators, right? Start being a better communicator by following the three simple axioms of good communication: 1. Be Prompt 2. Be Honest 3. Be Clear

do. Be a better communicator at work, at home and even with your own Toastmasters club. When you are prompt, honest and clear in your communications you will benefit by being respected by all those you communicate with. Start by practicing this with your own Toastmasters Club. Toastmasters is a safe place to practice your communications skill. Build the habit of good communication at Toastmasters and see your skills translate to productive results at work and home. ENJOY!

Remember this in all you

Western Division Governor Linda Davis Spring 2011 is in the air. This marks a time of refreshing, growth and vigor. The Western Division is flowing into this season with an attitude of winning by increasing club membership, speech contest victories and accomplishing club goals. We started this year winning the Traveling Trophy at the District Executive Club Meeting. Our schedules are filled with events to increase membership and we are sharing Toastmasters with everyone we meet. The Blue Ridge Toastmasters Club hosted an Open House on January 25th and Best Part Toastmasters had a membership event on February 23rd. Piney Mountain and Franklin County are planning membership growth events soon. There have been several well attended, motivating part 2 Officer training sessions throughout the Western Division which has sparked clubs to focus on their goal of

finishing the year distinguished. Many clubs have held their club International and Table Topics Speech contests and we invite you to join us at our upcoming speech contests. Check the District web site (www.District66.org) for details on dates, times and locations. Area 1 - February 19 Area 10 - March 19th Area 18 - March 12

Mechanic .vs. heart Surgeon Author Unknown

A mechanic was removing a cylinder-head from the motor of a Harley motorcycle when he spotted a wellknown cardiologist in his shop. The cardiologist was there waiting for the service manager to come and take a look at his bike when the mechanic shouted across the Garage. "Hey, Doc, want to take a look at this?" The cardiologist, a bit surprised, walked over to where the mechanic was working on the motorcycle. The mechanic straightened up, wiped his hands on a rag and ask, "So Doc, look at this engine. I open its'

heart, take the valves out, repair any damage, and then put them back in, and when I finish, it works just like new. So how come I make $40,000 a year and you get the really big bucks ($1,500,000) when you and I are doing basically the same work?" The cardiologist paused, smiled and leaned over, then whispered to the mechanic..."Try doing it with the engine running."

Alan TutenToastmasters is an organization like no other. We define leadership not in terms of status, but in terms of service. Over the past decade, it's been my honor to serve you in several capacities, most recently as Lieutenant Governor, Education & Training. Each new step brings its share of challenges, as well as opportunities to give and grow. Again I am making myself available to serve, as I express thanks for all the contributions you have made to our shared success. I would appreciate your support, and given the opportunity, I'd be honored to serve as your next District Governor.

Daphne Hill Energy, Enthusiasm, Excellence, and Experience‌ epitomize your current Lieutenant Governor Marketing, Daphne Hill.

R. Eriks Goodwin-Pfister I ask for your Division Governor vote so that I can help grow the District's success through effectively leading, communicating with, and supporting the Area Governors of Central Division. I offer my proactive leadership style to benefit the Area Governors in their quest to improve leadership skill and confidence throughout their term and to help make the vision of District leadership come alive. I joined Toastmasters in 2006 by chartering Bon Air Toastmasters, leading it to achieve Select Distinguished in the first five months after chartering and then President's Distinguished. I have served as District Webmaster and Area 21 Governor.

Regina Ramona I've been recognized as the "Toastmaster Dancer" after sharing the art of Ballroom Dancing at conferences. Dancing develops various skills on social and professional levels incorporating body language, confidence and marketing; advantageous skills for the LGM to encourage growth in clubs and members. I chartered Tower Toasters and served as President during my first year of Toastmasters. We earned the Select Distinguished Award and assisted with the charter of Toasters on Track. I also served as an Area Governor and earned my ACB, ALB. Remember, the more you give to Toastmasters, the more you benefit. Let's share our benefits.

Linda Kennedy I have served in most club offices since joining Toastmasters in 2007 in Brussels, Belgium and was awarded Toastmasters Lifetime Achievement Award, Areas B1/B2, D59. Since becoming a member in D66, I have served as VPM and Area C21 Governor. Each of these leadership roles has enhanced my communication skills and strengthened my leadership abilities. I understand the challenge and opportunity of meeting the goals of the DCP and, as Central Division Governor, I will use my knowledge, energy and passion to serve and support the Area Governors of the Central Division and D66.

I currently serve as Area 26 Governor and I’m committed to the service and success of all Toastmasters. Professionally, I am an Award-winning author, inspirational speaker, Trainer and Presenter. I recently launched an audio book entitled, Effective Public Speaking in 90 Minutes and hold a Master’s degree in Training and Leadership.

Kathy Reynolds Kathy Reynolds co-chaired the wildly successful 2010 Fall Conference. Her creative vision resulted in a sellout of nearly all of the events and garnered more than $10,000 in contributions – a first for District 66. She loves Toastmasters! For the past six years, Kathy has served as club president, VPE for three terms, VPM, VPPR, Area Governor and currently is a Club Coach. Under her leadership, her home club earned President’s Distinguished twice.

Ian D. Henry I joined Blue Ridge Toastmasters Club in Charlottesville in 2000 with dreams of becoming an after dinner speaker, instead I discovered a talent for storytelling. I thank my wife for the inspiration and Toastmasters for the opportunity to develop as a storyteller. I have been President, VPE, SAA, the club’s videographer and Treasurer. I am currently District 66 Treasurer. One reason for standing is that I feel it takes a year of service to align the Treasurer with WHQ’s way of doing things but the prime reason is to provide continuity of service. Many members of DEC serve for one year so there is not enough “corporate memory” about the way things are done.

Pia Guerin "I'm Pia Guerin, a 11 year member of City Talk Toastmasters who has served in a majority of Club Officer roles. I am the current Area 17 Governor. With more than twelve years of accounting experience, I have served District 66 during 2010-2011 by providing Treasurer training multiple times in all Divisions. Striving for excellence, my goal will be to provide transparent financial records that all members may examine. As Treasurer I will be will be working with the elected and appointed leaders to keep District 66 financially sound."
