Message from the Division Director
It's my great privelege and honour to be Bass Division Director for 2018-19, and my role is to support all members and clubs in the Division by supporting our Area Directors, and through them reaching out to any club or member who needs or wants my support.
I am a long term member of Toastmasters, who has achieved much and served in all Club Officer roles and many District roles, and my tagline is: 'We serve ourselves best by serving others' and quickly adopted the four core values of Toastmasters International namely Integrity, Respect, Service and Excellence.
As my tagline suggests, I am here to serve the member, club, area, division and district and endeavour to do this with integrity, respect and excellence in all I do
This term their are exciting things happening throughout District 73, with new initiatives and plans. Like you in your clubs it all starts for me too, with Success Plans.
Success comes through team work, cohesiveness and collaboration. In the Division we have very strong clubs and and a couple of clubs that need our collective support, as we are all in this together. My Division Vision for 2018-19 is that all clubs will be at charter strength (20) or a Net Gain of five (5) by 30th June 2019. To reach this visionary outcome, we will create a new high for the division, and hopefully do it together, and achieve Distinguished or better Clubs, Areas and Division.
There are many terrific leaders in Bass Division, who have done the hard yards, achieved goals, coached clubs and mentored new members, to empower us to learn, listen and lead.
Now it's our turn, along with them to build on the Bass Division Legacy, and create our high performing Division; high performing clubs;, and high performing members.
I wish you all the success you deserve. Enjoy the journey.
