Publish Date: 2015-08-30


Welcome to 84th Toastmasters International Convention in Las Vegas. Kelly Guo, Matt Steele and I represented District 89 in the District Leadership Training and convention held from 10th August 2015 to 15th August 2015.



On 12th August, Sarah He, Immediate Past District Governor, led all delegates in receiving the President’s Distinguished Award from International President, Mohammed Murad.



We witnessed the born of new World Champion of Public Speaking, Mohammed Qahtani. His speech “Power of words” was really powerful.


Planning is important.  District Trio also grabbed the opportunity to have an hour discussion with our Xiamen Fall Conference keynote speaker, Mark Brown.



From 10th Aug to 13th Aug, District Trio interviewed all international officer and director candidates and used the 268 club proxies to vote for the best candidates.



The election results were:

1st Vice President, Balraj Arunasalam, DTM



 2nd Vice President, Lark Doley, DTM




Region 1 and 3 International Directors, Margaret Page, DTM and Crystal Allbritton, DTM


Region 5, International Director, Magnus Jansson, DTM



Region 7 and 9, International Directors, Russell L. Drake, DTM and Steve Chen, DTM



Region 11 and 13, International Directors, Teresa Dukes, DTM and Nagaraja Rao, DTM


 Fun Time!  We cherished the moments to celebrate and reunite with new and old friends.


 District Trio is determined to serve all members in district 89 to the best of our abilities.
