Welcome to Division D!  We are dedicated and devoted to every aspect of the Toastmasters program; learning, teaching, leading and communicating!  Our Division goals include sharing knowledge from the more established clubs with those who need support as well as seeking potential growth opportunities.  The Division D Success Plan includes reaching out to our fellow Toastmasters beyond our Division to enhance our learning experience, which in turn fortifies our District as a whole. Our Area Directors have already established themselves as leaders in their own Toastmaster communities and welcome the opportunity to assist ANY Toastmaster where and whenever needed.

About Division:

 Division  E is made up of 18 clubs across 5 areas. Out of the 18 clubs, 2 are community clubs and the rest Corporate. The Division is the first new division formed from splitting Division C and absorbing the geographic area south of the Mississauga town line boundary that was previously Area B35, B36 & B37 from Division B. As the first newly formed Division, numbering of the areas started in the next numbered grouping of E1, E2 etc.

Message from Division E Director 

 

I am excited and thrilled to be part of this new division which has come about due to the transformation that D86 has undergone in 2019 and the vision that our District executive have for building and sustaining strong and vibrant Toastmasters clubs. The community clubs have been the mainstay of Toastmasters for generations, however, corporate clubs are as important and are part of the Toastmaster experience for many people. I understand the challenges faced by many corporate clubs, due to timing and work deadlines, last minute meetings, site relocation etc., I had my fair share of them as I started my Toastmasters journey as a member of a corporate club. However, I’m convinced that as more and more  of our members embrace the Pathways Program, corporate clubs will stand tall alongside our Community clubs poised to fulfill the Toastmaster mission to empower individual to become more effective communicators and leaders.   

I’m excited  to take on the role as leader of the division and as this year unfolds my goal is to visit as many clubs  as possible within the division, meeting members, listening to their ideas and celebrating their club successes. My vision is that our division E  will be the Division of Excellence where members are empowered and engaged to become the best they can be.

Division N consists of 17 clubs in four areas. We may not have as many areas, but we cover more area by land mass than any other division. It would take over 15 hours and over 1300 kms to drive through all of the areas in Division N.

 

Message from Division N Director

I am very excited and nervous to take on this post. Division N, affectionately referred to as "The North" (said in your deepest voice), has special challenges because of our geography. Our clubs are fewer and further between compared to other divisions but they are mighty. We have some amazing dedicated people and I will be calling on all of them to help make this an amazing year. 

Like many other divisions we suffered some membership loss over the last few years but I know with the energy and enthusiasm I've seen and felt from our membership that we will regain the momentum. 

Toastmasters has done so much for me, in speaking, leadership, and confidence in myself, I want to share that with as many people as possible.
