Thursday morning in Palm Desert, California, USA, the Board of Directors of Toastmasters International briefed attendees at this years International Convention about proposed changes to the running of Toastmasters International.
The intent is now to truly take Toastmasters “Global” by introducing changes to branding and the recognition process for Areas, Divisions and Districts from July 2012. As of this date, ALL Districts will be able to achieve Presidents Distinguished status while Division & Area requirements will change slightly to enhance this. At present only the top 6 achieving Districts in the world can gain this status.
The full details of these changes will be available on Toastmasters International website from August 20, 2010.
