Greeting from Kelly Guo, Program Quality Director

Publish Date: 2015-07-06

Dear all members of District 89,


Thank you for your continual support, encouragement and trust for my consecutive leadership service role this year as District Program Quality Director.


Serving as LGM last year, I had the opportunity to closely connect with club officers and members in different cities. I have become more aware of the difficulties some of you have experienced and I understand how hard it is sometimes to balance your life with Toastmasters. I share your predicament because personally I’ve been experiencing all of these challenges. It’s not easy to take on multiple roles in life, and I am proud of all of us in challenging our personal growth limits in Toastmasters. As an old saying in Toastmasters goes “the more you devote, the more you gain.”


I am happy to share that last year our district achieved the highest designation of President’s Distinguished District, and ranking No. 6 in the world among 90 districts. This achievement and honor belong to all of you because of your dedication and devotion to our Toastmasters community. As members of District 89 you have been outstanding and you will continue to enjoy your Toastmasters journey to grow, learn and have fun.


The new term has just started and I know you are all ready for a brand new start with your new goal. You are full of passion, enthusiasm, and ambition, but as time goes by you might lose your passion. If and when  this happens, just remember the 3F principles our past international president Michael Notaro shared: Focus, Fun and Follow-up. Focus on your goal and be reminded for the reason why you join Toastmasters; remember if there is no Fun it’s not Toastmasters, always enjoy, have fun and learn at the same time; and keep following up with your goal, strategy and your planning during the process.


YES…I am also ready for this new term with my program quality team to better serve our community with our heart and sincerity. Please allow me to introduce my formidable Program Quality Team.

The success of Toastmasters is a collective and team experience in communication and leadership. Our team service is therefore rooted in my "TEAM" vision, - an acronym for Together Each Achieves More.

We will endeavor to bring creative and productive ideas and a positive attitude to our district. We hope to satisfy more members with their needs, drive more clubs to achieve distinguished clubs, and nurture more leaders and talents to better serve our community. Let us "TEAM" together to achieve more.
