Attention Toastmasters Club President and Club Secretary,
Cast Your Vote
Your club has an important vote to cast during the Annual Business Meeting at the Toastmasters International Convention Clubs will vote to elect international officers and directors to the 2017–2018 Board of Directors as well as vote on Proposals A through G: (see them here>>)
Amendments to the Bylaws of Toastmasters International and the Club Constitution for Clubs of Toastmasters International. Please plan to attend on Saturday, August 26, at 1 p.m. in Ballroom AB at the Vancouver Convention Centre, Vancouver, British Columbia. To learn and understand the roles, attributes and responsibilities, please review the Leadership Roles. As provided in the Bylaws of Toastmasters International, Article X, Section 1, a Toastmasters club in good standing is entitled to two votes at the Annual Business Meeting. To make your club’s vote count, assign your proxy and cast your votes in one of three ways:
1. Send a delegate from the club who is attending the Annual Business Meeting to carry your club votes.
2. Designate the 2017–2018 district director to act as your club proxy. The district director, program quality director and club growth director will be attending. If (and only if) the district director is not in attendance, the next senior district officer attending the Annual Business Meeting will act as your club proxy.
3. Designate an active member from another club to act as your club proxy.
NOTE: The club president or secretary must assign the club votes. If the votes are not assigned, they cannot be cast. Votes must be assigned even if you are assigning the votes to yourself. To assign the club votes, go to www.toastmasters.org/clubcentral, log in, choose the club(s) you are assigning proxies for and click on Club Proxy.
If you have any questions or need help please contact me.
Cathy Herschell, DTM
District 86 Director
