Lorraine, Don and Glenn made their way to Portland, Oregon to meet with the trios of 13 other districts from regions 2 and 4 for mid-winter training. It was a great opportunity to get to know our new Region IV Director, Monique Levesque-Pharoah DTM. The sessions included training on a number of different issues typically facing a district trio. We had the opportunity to workshop on a number of different topics.
We also got a preview of the new Pathways program that is coming. Exciting to see more, but we still have a ways to go before it will become an issue for District 99. We also learned more information on changes coming down the pipe that will affect all of us.
It was an exciting week to be south of the border. There was lots of excitement going on while the trios were tucked away safely in a hotel to attend the two action packed days of sessions.
We also got to meet and work with some of the staff from Toastmasters International. Most notably, CEO Dan Rex was in attendance. It was an excellent opportunity to meet some of the people that make the magic happen at Toastmasters International.
