Fellow Toastmasters of District 51,
Greetings and welcome to the new exciting Toastmasters term 2015-2016.
It is indeed an honour and privilege for me to serve District 51 as its first District Director and to pen a few words to all of you.
As we embarked into this new term, let us be reminded of the Toastmasters International Mission, District Mission and Club Mission. More importantly, our oath as a Toastmaster that we grow individually in developing ourselves by honing our communication and leadership skills. This is the heart of what Toastmasters is all about.
Let us ponder firstly, what are our personal goals in Toastmasters this term?
-To achieve an educational goal, leadership goal, etc?
-How do we get there?
Well, District 51 has its mission, vision and own goals too for this term.
The District 51 Theme for 2015-2016 is “Simply Distinguished!”, and it is the dream and vision that all Clubs in District 51 to achieve at least Distinguished and above.
Visualised that it will happen and it will if all of us stay focused, first on our personal goals for growth in Toastmasters. Stay focused on what you are set to achieve and the how will happen somehow. Your fellow Toastmasters and leaders will support you and all of us will reach the pinnacle of success together.
It is a sure proof way in Toastmasters that we can gain so much in self-confidence and personal growth. Let us work for a higher purpose in Toastmasters and the rest will follow through.
Believe that we can, and we can achieve.
Not forgetting that in all that we do, let us keep in mind the CORE Values of Toastmasters:-
Integrity – Dedication to Excellence – Service to others – Respect

Program Quality Director
Dear D51 & D51R Toastmasters,
Many times we hold back on completing something very dear to our hearts, for example, going for swimming lessons, learning how to drive a car, completing the CC or ACB, doing the HPL, taking part in speech contests etc. There may be many reasons for this, fear of failure or not remembering the importance of that particular task. This term, I urge you to break out of your comfort zone and confront it. Do that speech, go for the HPL, take part in contests, and learn how to drive a car.
At the end of the term, on 30 June 2016, you will reflect back to this moment when YOU decided to just do it! You will be the happiest and most satisfied person.
Andrew Tan, ACS ALB
Club Growth Director
