Message from the Area 51 Director

It is my honour and privilege to serve as Area 51 Director for the 2017-2018 year, an Area which boasts 3 very strong clubs. This year promises to be one of new beginnings while staying true to our roots, with the launch of our new educational paradigm, Pathways. I seek to help facilitate communication, interaction and "club raids" between the different clubs, and do my part to help to ensure a smooth Pathways rollout in the coming months. I'm looking forward to a fantastic year of growth and new opportunities for myself, and all Toastmasters members.
