2017-18 Club Presidents Honored

The Bridge Builders 2017-2018 Presidential Trio were recently honored with the Area 62 Club President of the Year Award.  2017-2018 was a challenging year for Bridge Builders Toastmasters since we had three different Presidents at the helm.  Matt Bayer (far left with Dick Poirier as stand in) started the year but was transferred to Saudi Arabia in October 2017.  Euridice Oware (far right) stepped in to fill his shoes for several months but also needed to step down due to other commitments.  Megan Steiner (center) finished off the year.  This Trio maintained the continuity needed to enable the club to achieve President's Distinguished Status for the 6th year in a row! 

Thank you Matt, Megan and Euridice!

About Our Club

Bridge Builders Toastmasters is President's Distinguished Once Again!

A Toastmasters Club quality is measured by its level of achievement of goals as set forth by Toastmasters International.  For the sixth year in a row, in 2017-2018, Bridge Builders Toastmasters reached the highest level of President's Distinguished status by attaining 9 of the prescribed 10 goals.  The goals relate to individual member achievement in communication and leadership as well as the number of new members joining the club.  Bridge Builders gained 11 new members this past year.  Several goals also relate to officers attending training and to administrative goals.  In recognition of this President's Distinguished accomplishment, the club will receive a special ribbon from Toastmasters International for displaying on the club banner.

The Toastmasters Mission
A statement of shared values

Every Toastmasters club shares the same mission, clearly defined in the following mission statement:

We provide a supportive and positive learning experience in which members are empowered to develop communication and leadership skills, resulting in greater selfconfidence and personal growth.

Through this mission, each Toastmaster gains a clear understanding of the club's purpose, and the organization as a whole benefits from a shared set of values and goals.
