May Region 4 Website Message

Please help me welcome Pat Hannan as our incoming Region Advisor!  Pat comes to us with a wealth of knowledge and talent.  Besides being in past District leadership roles, Pat is also a past International Director.  I hope you are as excited as I am about Pat joining the leadership team in 2017-2018!

Socrates said “the secret of change is to focus all your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.”  This is the time of year for leadership change.  Many of our Districts have held their April/May Conference (or will very soon) which included the business meeting where the new District leadership team was elected by you.  Welcome all new District leaders!  Let’s finish this year strong and continue to build new clubs and support all clubs in achieving excellence in 2017-2018.

With the change of the District leadership teams, I also want to thank the outgoing leadership teams for all their hard work in 2017-2018.  I will give a little more detail about their hard work in the June letter.  Make sure you thank your District leadership teams.  They have made amazing things happen the year!

Be mindful of the May 5th email sent to you from Toastmasters International.  The email included several proposed Bylaws and Club Constitution amendments.  You have a chance to vote on these changes at the business meeting held on Saturday, August 26th at 1:00pm in Vancouver, British Columbia.  Make your club voice heard at the International level.  If you are unable to attend the meeting on behalf of your club, proxy information will be sent to you soon.  Proxy your vote!  This link contains more information about the proposed amendments:

The March Board Meeting Minutes will also be published soon.  Keep an eye out for them in this link:  Exciting things are coming our way!

Let’s continue to focus our energy on building the new.  We can make Region IV a power house by building new clubs and supporting all clubs in achieving excellence!

Kelly Nielsen
Region 4 Advisor 2015-2017
