The Historic District 73 Council Meeting
This historic council meeting is very important for Toastmasters in Western Australia. It will be the last time we meet to conduct business in District 73. The next council meeting in November this year will be a District 17 council meeting, when Toastmasters in Western Australia will be fully in charge of our own destiny. At the council meeting this Saturday afternoon, May 21, we complete important business to set up the new district, as well as some normal District 73 business.
Make sure your club is represented at the Council Meeting
The Council meets from 2 to 5 PM on Saturday afternoon, May 21. Each club has two votes at the Council. Initially they go to the President and the Vice President Education. if only one is present he or she automatically gets the vote of the other. If neither can be present they can proxy their vote to any other club member. Download the Proxy Form and bring the signed form to the Credentials Desk from Saturday morning to midday.
