Dear District Leaders,

Over the past few years, there have been concerns expressed to the Board of Directors that floor candidates were being nominated during annual District Council meetings who have not gone through the District Leadership Committee (DLC) process. In order to ensure that best candidates are being nominated, the Board reviewed and made modifications during its August Board meeting to strengthen the qualification for floor candidates and the DLC process.

At the Board Briefing held during the 2019 Toastmasters International Convention, the Board announced modifications to the governing documents with regards to district campaigns, elections, and floor candidates. Attached is a copy of the changes for your reference. These changes became effective immediately. Please share this with the members of your DLC and all potential candidates. The official minutes from the August Board meeting will be posted on the Toastmasters website in the near future.

This email has been sent to all District Directors, Program Quality Directors, Club Growth Directors, and Immediate Past District Directors.

Best regards,

Jonathan Lam
District Growth and Support Manager
