Welcome to the first Fall Conference in New District 27. Our theme for this
conference is based on the Toastmaster goals. They are: Respect, Integrity,
Service and Excellence.

  So! Welcome to District 27’s Fall Conference Where Leaders R.I.S.E.!!!

As we begin a new era – with new boundaries and leaders, let us look to the
future. A future as bright as the sun, filled with communication and leadership
opportunities for all. We are poised to make our marks on the world; and we
shall paint our names in the sky for all to see.

As you spend time with us today, take an opportunity to introduce yourself to
other members of the District. Ask questions of the more experienced
Toastmasters, seek guidance and clarity of your role in the District through our
Educational Sessions, and share fellowship over a meal.

I look forward to seeing and speaking with each of you!

           District 27’s Communication and Leadership Awardee

           Kim is a sought after storyteller, humorist and musician sharing her
     original stories and songs at theaters and festivals throughout the United
     States. For 15 years Kim used the art of applied storytelling as a youth
     advocate working with at risk youth. Several years ago she turned to the
     stage, taking her love of humor and storytelling to a new level, and aren’t
     we glad she did. The arts and storytelling community have embraced her
     casual, eclectic style. Her genuine care of the audience combined with
     her ability to relate results in a magical, hear a pin drop performance
     peppered with moments of raucous laughter.

           Kim is a commissioned artist through the Virginia Commission of the
     Arts and serves as the National Youth Storytelling representative for
     Virginia and is president of the Virginia Storytelling Alliance. She is also

     stores from folks within our elder communities. Her work in this area has
     resulted in a nomination for the 2008 Governors Awards for the Arts.

 I wish to give a big “Thank You” to the conference planning team.

 Without my District Governor, Bessie Johnson, and my mentors, Vince Caldwell,
 Paul White, and Lillian Cooke this conference would not have been possible. I
 must also include the District Public Relations Officer (PRO), Renee Moore, for
 all of her support and for being the “pro” that she is. A shout out to Carol
 Grohman, the District Treasurer and all of you who volunteered, asked if you
 could help, or thought about helping but were too busy.

 I hope you enjoyed this weekend and plan to attend the next conference
 because we’ll be doing this again in the spring, May 11-12. You have lots of time
 to clear your calendar and volunteer for the next one. I’m willing to accept
 whatever part you can play in making the Spring Conference even better.

 Once again, I hope you enjoyed the conference and “thank you” for the support.
