Dear members in District 85,
On behalf of Toastmasters International Board of Directors, it is my greatest honor to welcome you to 2014-2015 term.
2013-2014 term, District 85 has done very well. Thanks you Kenneth Wang and team for the leadership. In the coming year, am convinced that DG Alex will lead District 85 to greater heights.
Please stay focus on your educational needs, help your friends to become more effective communicators by bringing them to your club and be part of the club. Area and Division Governors, please stay focused I. Achieving the District Mission:- We build new clubs and support all clubs in achieving excellence.
I would like to heartily congratulate new elected District 85 Trio, District Governor Alex Cheng, DTM, Lieutenant Governor Education and Training Terassy Tian, DTM, and Lieutenant Governor Marketing TM Yang Zhao on leading the district and making another fantastic program year 2014-2015 with their strong and excellent leadership that they always demonstrate!
District 85 belongs to Region 13 which is the fastest growing region standing out among 14 regions worldwide in Toastmasters International, and District 85 is one of the most important key players and contributors to the amazing growth of the region. I believe the wonderful and steady growth of your district has been achieved largely by the passionate efforts and strong leadership demonstrated by club leaders and district leaders including areas and divisions. And most importantly, it was achieved by all members’ excellent teamwork. It was also achieved by your strong enthusiasm towards learning and honing your communication and leadership skills through club activities and whatever activities Toastmasters has provided to you.
The New Year dawns with new hopes, new aspirations and new ambitions! The leadership team of District 85 that takes charge on 1 July 2014 has a rich legacy of knowledge and experience that they carry with them. Yet they have a unique opportunity of writing their own destiny and leaving behind their own legacy.
The recipe for success for the leadership team lies in recognizing their vision for the members of the district. If they can articulate to themselves what is it that they wish to achieve in the forthcoming twelve months and the benefit that they can provide through this vision, the likelihood of achieving success increases manifold. As Walt Disney put it, “If you can dream it, you can do it.”
