Club Growth News

Club Growth MapThe thrilling news is that on the 10th of September Walsall Speakers club received its charter, becoming the District’s 203rd club and our first new club this Toastmaster’s year. Walsall is located just North of Birmingham (see map) in Division E in Area 39. It has taken nearly two years to reach charter status from the initial demonstration meeting. That journey has been navigated by the Club’s Sponsors Tanya and Michele (Mish) Barad. They are now assisted by Club Mentor Asma Riaz to help develop strong foundations for the Club.

At a recent club meeting of Fexco, Killorglin, County Kerry (see Map), Club Growth Director Gerard Mannix presented the club banner to Siobhan Colborne, President of Fexco Payments Toastmasters Club.

 

Sincere congratulations to Siobhan as she has been the brainchild and founder of this club. She was assisted by Toastmasters Debby Looney and Rachel Pinckheard. The club is thriving with regular very proactive and well attended meetings
