We have just set sail on a voyage of service and leadership excellence.
To all Club Officers and District Leaders and on behalf of my Senior District Officers, I bid you a warm welcome to the sail. For your moral courage to take up the servant leadership to render selfless service to the members in particular and the public in general, I would like to express and convey my profound respect and appreciation to all of you.
At the recent District 102 Leaders Training which ended on 8 July, 2018, we greatly emphasized on the need for inculcating and imbuing the spirit of excellence as leaders when rendering our service to the Clubs as well as the communities around us. In sync with this guideline, we regard and value all our leaders as “First Among Equals”. To sustain this noble goal, we have established and adopted the slogan “Dignify Toastmasters Leadership” as the District 102 Motto to guide, direct and conduct ourselves in whatever we Think, Say and Do.
We have set a high goal for achievement this term – to emerge as the best ten Districts in the World of Toastmasters. For this, we exhort all Clubs to attain by 30 April 2019 a minimum membership strength of 30, to maintain a high level of Club quality and to encourage members to participate in the Pathways Education Program.
Your Area and Division Directors are all trained to assist you to achieve excellence. Do not delay. Your action starts now, for time and tide waits for no man.
I wish all of you good health, happiness and satisfaction in your voyage of service. If you need any help, advice or input, please do not hesitate to contact your Area / Division Director or myself.
With warmest regards.
Dr William Lau, DTM
District 102, 2018-2019
