It’s the longest day of the year. I’m celebrating the day by being outside during those long daylight hours. Friend and soon-to-be Chester County Toastmaster president Cathy Lane is hosting a transition party for the local Toastmaster group.
Taking a Mentorship Role
As outgoing president, I’ve been mentoring Cathy for the past couple weeks so she is ready when she steps into her new role on July 1. The soiree is a mentoring opportunity for my executive team to help the new crew make a smooth move into club leadership.
Incredible Executive Team
I’m sure they will be and I believe that next year Cathy will feel about her executive team the way I feel now about mine. I couldn’t have asked for a better group of leaders to work with: Scott Swinehart, Joseph Eagle, Brian Sagula, Cathy Lane, Mark Reich, Mark Meaders, Daniel Fernandes and Susan Lacy. During our year, we achieved the highest Toastmaster club ranking, President’s Distinguished. We also started a club mentoring program, Chester County Toastmaster Movie night (featuring speeches of international speech contest winners), and the Ambassador Club. Thanks to Robin Flavelle who dotted all the i’s and crossed the t’s that I would never have paid attention to or known to do.
