Lead the Future

The new 2024-2025 Toastmasters program year provides us all with the opportunity to start fresh.  Take the time now to reflect on your journey over the past year and think about the possibilities going forward.  Did your club reach their collective goals?  How did your own communication objectives progress?  Have you added leadership to your list of things to explore?  What does the path ahead look like?  This year’s theme for District 29 is “Lead the Future”.  While the future can be filled with uncertainties, it also brings a sense of excitement and anticipation for what lies ahead.  When we leverage the skills learned in Toastmasters, we move from being a passive observer to an active participant, fully engaged in shaping our ends.  And as we embark on a journey of self-discovery, we impact the lives of those around us, too.  How will you take charge of your destiny and lead the future?  Paula, Sukumar, and Kim District 29 Trio
