President’s Update

Spirited Speech Masters is having a “Jumping June” this last month of the Toastmasters year! On June 10th, we had our officer elections, and I’m pleased to say that we have all of our Officer Positions filled!  Our 2019-2020 Officers will be:

  • President: Joann Hester
  • Vice President Education (VPE): Sally Boyd
  • Vice President Membership (VPM): Twana Benjamin
  • Vice President Public Relations (VPPR): Loni Huff
  • Treasurer: Dawn Sandlin
  • Secretary: Allison Powers
  • Sergeant-at-Arms (SAA): Naureen Syed
  • Immediate Past President (IPP): Sally Boyd

I am really excited to see some of our newer members step up into officer positions.  Good luck to all of our new officers!  Our officer installation will be July 11th.  We will be installed by our new Area Director, Patricia Koch!  There will also be speeches by our outgoing and incoming Presidents.

Open House!

Our open house was so much fun!  We had a great crowd!  Dawn Sandlin gave a great speech on packing a backpack, and Loni Huff did a wonderful job as her evaluator!  Thanks to Joann Hester for an interesting Word-of-the-Day, and we introduced the practice of snapping our fingers when someone uses the WotD!  Karl Jonsson had the Table Topics theme of “Vacations,” and several of our guests gave great presentations.  We hope to see some new members coming in soon!  Finally, both Allison Powers and Naureen Syed gave their “#MyWhy” speeches, telling why they joined Toastmasters!  Overall, it was a great meeting.  Thanks to all of the members who pitched in to help!
