District 52’s Theme for 2017-2018: Embrace Challenges and Seize Opportunities!

Welcome to the new 2017-2018 Toastmasters program year!

Congratulations to all members and clubs that completed their goals for the year ending on June 30. The focus now is on the year ahead.

My theme for the year is “Embrace Challenges and Seize Opportunities!” I chose that theme because Toastmasters D52 offers members many opportunities to prepare for life’s challenges – and the opportunity to grow that accompanies each of those challenges – both personally and professionally. Great opportunities don’t come everyday – recognize and seize them every chance you get.

On behalf of the entire D52 leadership team, I wish all of you and your clubs every success this year. We will do everything in our power to help you succeed.

Kathleen Lubin, DTM
District 52 Director
