I am Kathleen O’Toole, District Director for District 16. Members are the key to a successful district. All of our members have hidden skills and talents. This year we will tap into those skills and lead the membership with clear communication and direction. Our focus will be on supporting the district mission and building strong teams. As District Director, I bring over 20 years of corporate leadership experience, problem-solving, negotiation, and communication skills to the position.
I am so excited to be a part of Toastmasters and the leadership team in District 16. I joined Toastmasters when I realized all the potential that is available through the support of the members and the monthly meetings. I have learned so much from fellow Toastmasters and continue to learn with each encounter. So many have jumped in to help me as I set goals and strive to become a stronger leader and better communicator.
I am Michael Kirkland and in Toastmaster for 8 years. I ran for Club Growth Director because I want to make a difference and help the members and District become better. Help me to make District 16 to become stronger and better. My vision is have all members become more active, to work together and focus on better member retention: Let work together in retaining current members, recruiting new and former members, and developing partners with companies and interest groups to form new clubs.
