FALL CONFERENCE UPDATE There still is time left to register for the 1999 District 50 Fall Conference being held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel at 7050 N. Stemmons Freeway on Friday, October 22 and Saturday, October 23. Come to attend some great educational sessions, hear Toastmasters International President Tim Keck speak, make new friends, and attend the District Humorous Speech and Table Topics contests. All District 50 Club Presidents and Vice Presidents of Education are requested to attend the business meetings on Saturday as voting representatives of their clubs (there is no charge to attend these portions of the Conference). Particularly important is the business meeting on Saturday afternoon, where a quorum will be required to vote on District business. If you hold one of these club offices and cannot attend the Saturday afternoon session, please sign the proxy you recently received in the mail and give it to a member of your club who plans to attend so that your club gets to vote.
CLUB NEWS RSA Toastmasters, #5082, has recently established a new meeting time. The club will begin meeting every other Thursday at 11:45 A.M.
Unique Toastmasters, #7274, is in the process of developing a Youth Leadership Program for the Carrollton/Farmers Branch School District.
Talk Of The Tower Toastmasters, #8952, has established the first Tuesday meeting of each month as a special meeting to showcase Toastmasters. The first portion of these special meetings consists of presenting highlights of the Toastmasters Organization overall. The second portion of these meetings contains a presentation from the Successful Club Series program. Guests and club members both find these meetings to be informative and interesting and the Successful Club Series presentations help club members to achieve their CL and AL designations.
