President Ben Fong receiving his TLI Attendance certificates
Angeline Lee delivered project speech no. 1 The Goodwill Speech from the Public Relations manual. Speaking on “Be the Speaker You Dream Of”, she began with the reason she joined Toastmasters and ended with
Toastmasters provides us with the biggest room in the world - the biggest room for improvement. This room will never run out of space for me, for you, for people who wish to conquer their fears of failure, who dream of being a better speaker. Join us in this room because just like me, you don’t have to face your fears alone.
Evaluator KC Lim did an impromptu evaluation as the evaluation was immediately after the speech was delivered. In his opinion, the message to encourage non-Toastmasters to join the growing number of 220,000 Toastmasters world-wide was elegantly presented, and not a hard-sell as required by the project objectives.
Next, Area W7 Governor Tan Lay Theng handed out the TLI1 and TLI2 Attendance Certificates to our current team of club officers.
Treasurer Khairul receiving the Division W Membership Award from Area Governor Tan Lay Theng
Our Area Governor also handed out Division W Membership Award to our hard-working Treasurer Khairul Hassan. This award from Division W is in recognition of clubs who have submitted 20 or more membership dues by 30 March 2010.
Our next meeting will be held on 18 May 2010. With Past District Governor Low Yat Seow DTM as our General Evaluator and KC Lim attempting project no. 1 from the Facilitating Discussion manual, it will certainly not be just another ordinary meeting.
Join us on the 18th and find out more on “To Thine Own Self Be True”.
