Please join us all in congratulating Donald Zurakowski DTM for achieving recognition from the Toastmasters International Board of Directors for earning the Excellence in Program Quality Award for his work in our district in 2016-17. Our district had the distinction of achieving 74 out of 149 clubs reaching distinguished status. That is an accomplishment that we all can be very proud of for the members and clubs of the district.

Donald will receive his award formally at the International Convention in Vancouver, BC on Thursday, August 24th at the Hall of Fame ceremony. If you are going to be at the convention, please attend and congratulate Donald on his award.

From Donald:

This I am happy for.What it doesn’t say is that this is a reflection on all the dedicated Area and Division Directors, especially the Members in District 99. Members believed in the educational benefits made available.  Members worked hard to achieve their personal goals resulting in achievement and recognition for  District 99.District 99 ranked 1st in Region 4, for Distinguished Clubs and 55.3% in the world.(102 Districts)Thank you members of District 99.The recognition in Vancouver will be on your behalf.“Members First” Donald,Donald Zurakowski, DTMDistrict 99 Director Toastmasters International   “Where Leaders are Made”
