Second Quarter Theme for October thru December:
Light the FIRE Within ... Not Under!!
By LGET Miko Porter
Hello Awesome Fellow Toastmasters!!!!
It is time to turn up the heat and Light the FIRE Within…Not Under!! Every one of us has an opportunity to enthusiastically make a difference with our members and in our clubs no matter where we are or what our job description says.
Opportunities are all around us and are promoters in the many chances we have to take action. To generate overwhelming club momentum, start with inviting a Toastmaster from a different club to be a guest speaker and advertise that meeting; collaborate with fellow Toastmasters to create a Speakers’ Bureau; create a Toastmasters’ buddy system where the goal is for each buddy is to earn an education and a leadership award by May 15, 2014; unite with 2 different Toastmaster clubs to have huge open houses; create a list of club wins (Atta-boys and Atta-girls) based on every time a member indicates their Toastmasters experience has helped move them ahead in any aspect of their lives.
Awesome Toastmasters, it is up to us create imprints that leave impressions which can be seen now and will be talked about later, in conversations, that start like this…I remember when (you fill in the blank).
These suggestions are just to get us started; our time is now…Light the FIRE Within…Not Under!!
