President Adrian Scott congratulated his outgoing executive team in a warm and much-appreciated ceremony at last night’s meeting of First Oakville Toastmasters.
After an acknowledged difficult beginning this year, President Scott and this group of executive members transformed club meetings ending this year with members turning out in record numbers to participate in exceptionally good meetings and contests.
Toastmasters, as newcomers soon discover, is so much more than just the popular public speaking educational program. Leadership and mentoring come into play as members mature in their roles and understanding of the Toastmaster program grows.
More than a few senior Toastmasters have claimed this 2014-2015 season was one of the best in living memory and all put the credit to the hard work and foresight of the executive group.

Well done and congratulations to the outgoing executive team.
