Congratulations to all of us!!!
I am proud to confirm that Waverley Communicators has achieved President’s Distinguished Club Status in Toastmasters International’s Distinguished Club Program (DCP) during 2012/13, the highest accolade available.
Through the DCP, there are 10 goals that are set for each club to achieve over the Toastmaster year, including members’ accomplishments, numbers of new members, paying renewals on time, submitting required club reporting on time, and so forth.
Achieving 5 or 6 of these goals gives a club Distinguished Club status, 7 or 8 is Select Distinguished Status, and 9 or 10 is President’s Distinguished Club status.
We achieved 9 out of 10, and again, well done to all of us!
Thanks in particular to those members that have met particular development milestones during this past Toastmasters’ year. They include the following:
- Members who completed their CC manual: Paul Bailey; Graeme Buck; Stephen Dix and most recently Kevin Miller;
- Members who completed their CL manual: Stephen Dix and Brian Duffy;
- Members who achieved a new Advanced Communication level: Finlay Cooke (now with Haymarket Toastmasters);
- And thanks to the committee members who attended the Club Officer Training.
Waverley Communicators is a special club with a wealth of talent and lots of keen and supportive members.
Our achievement this year I believe is a reflection of our combined personal and group efforts.
It has been another great year for the club, building on the hard work and commitment of past members and committees.
I look forward to seeing the club continue to grow and evolve in the forthcoming year under the stewardship of the new committee.
