Note: We will update the most important and relevant contact information.

Message from Outgoing District 21 Governor - May Soo-Tveita, DTM

on . Posted in Latest D21 News

District 21 Members Extraordanaire:

As we work toward the final hours of my term as the first District Governor in the first year of realigned District 21, and the last ever District Governor in toastmasters history, I feel quite sad and exhilarated as we close the year.

It's been an unforgettable year for me, with more ups and downs than you could have imagined especially at the start and throughout the term with several challenges namely, geographical distance, 75% low member clubs, small operational budget made tighter with high travel costs and of course, with every leadership experience - interesting teams. Being a realigned year, it was a term that many regarded as "messy" so I dare say, not running away and overcoming this term intact with lessons learnt and to ponder over, is itself an achievement.
