There are two District Council Meetings a year.
  • The first is a Virtual District Council Meeting as required by Toastmasters.
  • The second is the Annual District Council Meeting which occurs at the Spring Conference on April 23, 2022.  Your attendance is required for each part/session of the Council Meeting.

VIRTUAL VOTING REQUIREMENTS: Virtual meeting has a different set of rules. There are no proxies – You cannot assign your vote to another person. You must register - confirm your attendance and your voting information.

Registration is now open. Eligible voters must pre-register before April 16th to receive the ZOOM meeting links and be added to the voter list.  If you have already pre-pregistered, the District thanks you. You must be present for attendance to be on the voter list before the meeting start time. **After registering for each business session, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting. This is your link to join the Council meeting. Save each link to your calendar.

DISTRICT OFFICERS: As a District Officer you are entitled to one vote. No proxy voting is allowed. If you are also a current President or a Vice President of Education of a club in good standing, you are entitled to an additional vote but must indicate on your confirmation of attendance and voting when registering. Please read the new club officer votes section carefully.

CLUB OFFICERS: All Clubs are assigned two votes. The current President and Vice President of Education on record of a club in good standing each have one individual vote. These officers cannot vote on behalf of each other. No proxy voting is allowed.
