Bring your Area Governor pack

Particularly bring the District Leadership Handbook – your Manual.

The training will be intensive and very strongly based around the Manual. It will be highly beneficial to look through the Manual before the Saturday Training. Copies will be distributed at the WA Governor’s Meeting on Thursday evening, June 18. If you weren’t able to get to that meeting, email Mark Richards with your mail address and he will post it to you.

2009/10 is the decisive year for our own District WA

We are poised on the edge of forming our own District, separate from Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia. The successful progress of Clubs, Areas and Divisions across WA will be crucial to our District WA success. Our Area Governors are the key factor in achieving this success, because you are in contact with our clubs.

DOT training is the vital first step in your personal success as a leader. Your success is the lynch pin of our whole campaign. See you at Training.

Finally, a reminder that you can view on the toastmasterwa website the overall structure of our WA Divisions, Areas and Clubs
