Toastmaster's 2012 Spring Newsletter:
Good afternoon everyone! It seems that another
Toastmaster's term has already passed us by, but that never stops the Capitol Toastmasters.
over the past few month, there have been some big initiatives presented in the club.
First, to kick-off the spring season the State of Arizona turned a grand 100 yers
old and to ommiserate that historic event, the Capitol Toastmasters rolled out the
AZ Centennial Membership Drive, and it is still ongoing. To date, the club
has welcomed in tew new members and also brought in a slew of new guests to open
their eyes to the "way of the Toastmaster". When it's all said and done, the
membership drive will have looked to bring in a total of four new members to the
club, and a tone of new guests.
More importantly, the club is continuing to work on a Spring Social Bash, where
all current and past members and their families can come and enjoy some wonderful
fellowship and good times. This was all made possible by the gracious donation
of last years President, Tim Owens who was so kind to make a cash donation in the
hopes of jump starting the social event! Thanks Tim!
As always, the VP of Education is whipping the Toastmasters into shape to get those
manuals done, and just recently the club has had several members finish the CC and
CL manuals, along with those the club has even had a few advances series manuals
get finihsed with many more getting started. In the grand scheme of things,
Education is the reason that Toastmasters exists, and I like many others have said
for a while now, our VP of Education, Leigh, is the "super" glue that holds this
Lastly, for all current officers, the terms are up at the end of June and the club will
be soon holding elections for the new corps of officers that are going to hold leadership
roles within the club. This is a very joyful period for all Toastmasters members,
because it is a changing of the guard in a way, and it allows for new members along with
old members to infuse the club with excitement and determination. Plus, the induction
ceremony for the new officers is a very distinguished and meaningful event for the entire
club! So if you are interested in becoming a club officer, let any current officer know.
Finally, looking back on the year that has been, I truly would like to commend all members
of the Capitol Toastmasters for a job well done. As always the entire club worked together
as a team to pull together events, meetings, speech contests, pay dues, invite guests, and the
list could go on for days, but I only have so much space. So in closing, great job on
another wonderful year Capitol Toastmasters!
