The District Council consists of all club Presidents and Vice Presidents Education (VPEs) plus the District Leaders who comprise the District Executive Committee (DEC). DEC members are entitled to one (1) vote and may cast up to two (2) additional votes as a Club President or Vice President Education. The VPE and the President each has one vote.
Clubs must be in "active" status (with a minimum of 8 paid members paid through 9/30/22) in order for their Club President and/or VPE to vote in a business meeting
(Club Status Guide
A quorum is required to conduct business. When a meeting is conducted virtually, no proxies will be permitted during voting. In other words, each District Council member must cast his/her own vote. Note in order to vote and receive a ballot you will need to register no later than 3 pm PST, Thursday, April 28, 2022. Instructions on voting and meeting procedures are included in the meeting packet.
Per Toastmasters International Protocol 7.1(6)(F), members who are not District Council members may attend District Council meetings, however, only voting members may participate in council deliberations.
District Executive Committee (DEC) Meeting
District Executive Committee (DEC) members are also members of the District Council. The DEC include the district director, program quality director, club growth director, public relations manager, district administration manager, district finance manager, division directors, area directors, and immediate past district director.
There is a DEC Meeting before the District Council meeting on Saturday, April 30, 2022 at 7:00 am. A separate email with the packet and zoom link will be sent to each DEC member.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org . As we approach the last few months of the Toastmasters program year for 2021-22, the District Leadership team and I continue to support you in any way needed to ensure you, your club (and members) achieve the year end goal(s) you set forth in the beginning of this year.
