Welcome to the new 2020-21 program year starting on July 1, 2020. The impact of the pandemic has been unprecedented no doubt. However, we had our silver lining of success stories in the 2019-2020 year as highlighted in the following video. We look forward to an exciting Toastmaster year as we adapt to the current realities and become more resilient as leaders.

How is COVID-19 Pandemic Affecting District 99?

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has been unprecedented. How will this continue to impact our district and clubs?

With the 2020-2021 program starting on July 1, we are moving forward with the lessons learned during the last three months of becoming more resilient. With a focus on quality and retention, we will be intentional and agile in our approach to conducting the district’s business of serving our members and supporting our clubs to achieve excellence in this current Toastmasters year.

It is good to see that many of our clubs adapt to conducting their meetings online. As life gradually opens up into a new normal, we are here to provide support as your club work through rethinking how your club continues to create a rich member experience using a hybrid model of conducting in-person meetings in a safe environment while extending that to an online audience.

Visit the District 99’s COVID-19 Resource page for tips and tricks on conducting online meetings and for a list of clubs that are currently meeting online.

Register your club to let us know that you are still conducting online meetings by filling out this form.
