District elections will be held this Saturday
A golden year for WA Toastmasters is moving to its close. Elections for 2008/09 District Officers will be held in Melbourne this Saturday, May 17, 2008.
The current top Officers include these from WA
District Governor Mike Helm DTM
District Secretary Jeanette Farrar ACS
District Treasurer Alan Smith DTM
District Public Relations Officer Leonor Ragan ACS
There are two other top Officers
District Lt Governor Education & Training Bernard Marmion DTM from Victoria
District Lt Governor Marketing Damian Chong from Tasmania
The District Nominating Committee has recommended these candidates to the Elections
District Governor Bernard Marmion DTM from Victoria
District Lt Governor Education & Training Damian Chong DTM from Tasmania
or Jacqui Gullick DTM from Victoria
District Lt Governor Marketing Carole Jones from Victoria
District Public Relations Officer – no nomination but my information is that a Victorian will be put forward
The incoming District Governor appoints the Secretary and Treasurer so we can reasonably expect them to be Victorians.
So the District Management Committee will have no-one from WA or South Australia.
Will that be a problem for us in WA next year?
Not at all. We are used to that. We are heavily engaged in building up the numbers of new clubs in our state, and assisting weaker clubs to recover. We will get on with this, with the medium term target of becoming a District in our own right.
