D4 TOASTMASTERS IS ON THE MOVE!
Welcome to the first blog on the joys and lessons of Toastmasters conference planning! Registration is OPEN. Early Bird Pricing is on now but it ends on April 30 – register today to secure your ticket at a lower price!
The conference will take place Saturday, May 20, 2017, with an optional Sunday morning workshop on Sunday, May 21, 2017, at the Crowne Plaza – Foster City. The conference theme is ALWAYS IN MOTION. What’s special about that theme? It encapsulates the essence of our region and of District 4: constant innovation, an adventurous spirit, and resiliency. The conference theme celebrates each of us for bringing that into our District 4 Community!
Planning started with preliminary recruitment for some key roles. Two such crucial members are Annamarie Buonocore, ACB, CL (of Chamber Speakers Circle Toastmasters) who as Conference Chair, is leading, supporting and inspiring a team of several dozen volunteers. Click here to sign up if interested in joining the conference planning committee!
Dennis Chase, DTM (Genentech Toastmasters) has signed on to lead conference registration again. Having served as Registration Chair at the 2016 Fall Conference, he has shared lessons learned and tips with us:
- To make sure we order enough food, programs and other materials!
- To make sure we have enough seats!
- To ensure all delegates have proper voting materials/credentials/proxies for the Business Meeting!
- Better security – the hotel is a public place after all!
Why register now?
Dennis followed his own advice and was the very first person to register. In doing so, he took advantage of the preferred pricing. Early bird prices are still available. Take advantage!
Finally, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to learn more about how you can use district credits your club has earned to register club members/delegates for the conference.
See you at the big event.
