It is time for the District 32 Annual Conference! Mark your calendars and make reservations to attend our District’s 71st conference, to be held online from May 9th to May 14th, 2022. The theme for this year’s conference is Develop, Enhance, Thrive!
Why attend a district conference?
Attending the spring conference is an excellent opportunity for each of us to develop skills and abilities, enhance talent already learned (or experience that has taken a rest!), and thrive, growing closer to a fuller version of your professional and personal self in a dynamic atmosphere.
“You Can Develop Any Habit Or Thought Or Behavior That You Consider Desirable Or Necessary.” -Brian Tracy
“Optimism Is The One Quality More Associated With Success And Happiness Than Any Other.”- Brian Tracy
“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.” – Maya Angelou
You will have the opportunity to hear from our conference keynote speaker and our workshop presenters, and support our Division International Speech and Evaluation contestants who are competing at the District level! Observing members compete is an excellent way to glean presentation and evaluation techniques you can use every day. The District International Speech Champion will move on to compete at the Toastmaster International semifinals and, if successful there, will have a chance to compete for the World Championship of Public Speaking.
A special note to Club Presidents and Vice Presidents of Education: As voting members of the District Council, you will not want to miss the District Council meeting! This is your opportunity to have a voice for your club. The business meeting will be on Saturday, May 14, 2022. As club leaders, you will vote on several important matters on behalf of your club, including the election of our district officers for the 2022-2023 Toastmaster year and club alignment within District 32. You don’t want to miss this! This year’s meeting will be online. Club Presidents and VPEs must attend to vote (per Toastmasters International, proxies cannot be assigned to another club officer or member for this event). You can attend the meeting via any electronic device (desktop computer, laptop, tablet, or smart phone)! Meeting registration ends MAY 9th!
