District Nominations Report – Spring 2016

 

Madam District Director:

 

As Chair of the 2015-2016 District Leadership Committee, on behalf of the committee I am very pleased to provide you with the following Nominations report for presentation to the Members and Clubs of District 45.

 

District 45’s longstanding tradition of alternating leadership positions between the US and Canada from year to year is reflected in this report.  Though not Toastmasters policy, this tradition has served our district extremely well in the past and has helped keep us sensitive to and grateful for each other’s countries, traditions and contributions.

 

I regret that we are unable to nominate candidates for the following positions:

  • Club Growth Director
  • Division A Director
  • Division D Director
  • Division F Director
  • Division G Director.

 

We are optimistic that there will be floor candidates to fill these gaps.

 

Eligibility of all candidates has been verified. The qualifications for reference are;

  • At the time of taking office, the district director must have served at least six consecutive months as club president and at least 12 consecutive months as a program quality director and club growth director or, division director or a combination of these.
  • At the time of taking office, the program quality director must have served at least six consecutive months as club president and at least 12 consecutive months as a program quality director and club growth director or, a division director, an area director or a combination of these.
  • At the time of taking office, the club growth director must have served at least six consecutive months as club president and at least 12 consecutive months as a program quality director and club growth director or, a division director, an area governor or a combination of these.
  • At the time of taking office, the division director must have served at least six consecutive months as members of a district council.

 

All candidates understand the duties and responsibilities of office, are committed to fulfilling those duties and responsibilities, and have the skills and abilities necessary to perform successfully as officers.

 

We are pleased to nominate the following slate of officers (named in alphabetical order in the case of contested positions):
