Public Speaking Northwest Leaders Meet ~ April 3, 2012

Leadership Quote: “Managers help people see themselves as they are; Leaders help people to see themselves better than they are.” — Jim Rohn

President Barbara Katz led the meeting with Ken, Emery, Jan, Prema, Pierce, and Jean in attendance.

Our treasurer, Jan, gave her report. She is currently taking inventory and will be presenting us with a budget.

Emery will be meeting with 4 HR directors as our Vice-President of Publicity.

Barb will be discussing membership with our Area Governor, Lesley Hobbs.

Both Ken and Barb are close to achieving more points toward our Distinguished Club Program (DCP). Emery’s striving to win the Triple Crown for giving 30 speeches this year.

So far we have achieved Select Distinguished toward our DCP. With Barb, Ken, and Emery’s achievements we could become President’s Distinguished by June 30th. The one thing we’re striving for is an increase in membership. Several ideas are on the table. One from Pierce is offering a scholarship fund.

As Jim Rohn said, “Leaders help people to see themselves better than they are.”  Our leaders are proving Jim Rohn right.

Respectfully submitted,
Jean Tracy, DTM

  1. Great minutes, Jean. It was a very fun meeting. Afterwards, our newest member, Lynne commented on how supported she feels by the group. With all that positive feedback, combined with a lot of fun, it's easy to take each baby step forward. That's what Toastmasters is all about for me.
