District 89 Newsletter June 2016 Issue

Congratulations to 2016-2017 District 89 EXCOM!
A new Toastmasters year embraces the birth of a brand new District 89 EXCOM.

If you want to know them better, stay tuned for more updates in the coming issues.

As District 89 Director of the year, Kelly Guo would like to share with us the district vision she depicts for the new term.

Our District Vision This Year is CFD - Create, Foster and Delegate

C is for Create. We create a high-quality, satisfying and enjoyable member experience.
The core value of Toastmasters and of our district is to serve members’ needs. Whether we are district officers or club officers we are also members. As such, not only do we create high-quality, satisfying and enjoyable experience for members, we also enjoy the fruits of our labor ourselves as members.
F is for Foster. We foster a diverse culture with harmony, respect and understanding.
We are uniquely diverse because our district covers HK, Macau and PRC. Yes, we sometimes have differences but they are outweighed by advantages and benefits of the diversity. With an attitude of harmony, respect, and understanding, our diversity is our strength, and unity our power.
D is for Delegate. We delegate and empower leaders and members to discover their potentials and fulfill their goals.
As leaders, learning to delegate and empower team members is one of the most important leadership skills we should possess. This will benefit both ourselves and the team members. By doing so we are creating and nurturing talented and capable leaders for our Toastmasters community.
So, this is our district vision, CFD - create, foster and delegate. This will be the direction we are working towards in the coming year. We aim to have all members satisfied with their Toastmasters experience while nurturing more qualified and capable leaders for our district.


District 89 EXCOM are ready to serve you!
