Greetings & Happy Holidays from Division F,
On Saturday, December 10, 2016 8:00am, Division F held the Winter Toastmaster Leadership Institute, (TLI.) The theme of our meeting, “Making Teams Stronger,” was a well planned meeting hosted by Area F-5. Great job!
Our meeting began with an invocation and pledge led by two local 4-H club members of Turlock. It is our goal this year, to reach out into the community and get people involved with our meetings & programs. For example, at our Division F Speech Contest in September, we had the Junior ROTC, from Turlock High process the US Flag.
At our TLI, we had a guest speaker, Mr. George, Jarosik, DTM, IPDD 39, who gave an outstanding speech, “Together We Lead,” followed by presentations from our division members. We had speakers and officer trainers at our TLI, who are new to Toastmasters and it is our goal to get “them and everyone,” involved. We had an outstanding attendance for the TLI and we asked “all” Toastmasters to attend and to bring a guest.
After the meeting, we received favorable reviews and had requests to replicate (a Makeup TLI,) this meeting in late January 2017 or February for a makeup TLI. The makeup TLI will be hosted by Foster Farms Roasters, Area- F-1. The exact date, time & location.

Communication & Leadership Tip:
When planning an event, such as the TLI, you need to take the time to encourage all members, new & experienced to help you with the many facets of the program. It is important to “bring people with you,” encourage and motivate them to help out and step up to leadership positions.” Monty L. Shindler, DTM Past Division F Director,2013-2014
It is an honor working with all of you, Happy Holidays & Happy New Year!
