President Natalie Cummings and the executive members of the Imperial Champions Toastmasters Club hosted a handover ceremony and planning retreat last Saturday at the Board Room of the Beachcombers Hotel in Villa, St Vincent and the Grenadines.
The event, which was addressed by Distinguished Toastmaster (DTM) Dr Kenneth Onu, was held so that the club would retain President’s Distinguished status for the year 2020-2021.
Dr Onu highlighted the importance of executive members understanding their roles and performing their roles to the best of their abilities. DTM Ken highlighted that it is through the excellent performance of our roles, members in turn will achieve the best results.
After attaining the goals set out by Toastmasters International for improved communication and leadership in 2019-2020, the club is poised to repeat this feat and has commenced the year with the objective to even surpass last year’s performance.
