Introductory Message From Our New Vice President of Public Relations

Hello Peninsula Toastmasters and guests! I wanted to introduce myself to you through video. It’s going to be an exciting 2012-2013. I just wanted to throw myself out there so you can get to know me better. Please  see the embedded video below or click HERE for the direct link.


Last Chance Officers Training

The last Officers Training on the peninsula for the Fall is 5:30PM to 7:00PM Thursday, August 25th. Light refreshment will be provided. The agenda includes opening remarks, officer training by experienced officers, and a keynote speech. The cost is $5 with pre-registration and $7 at the door. Please bring ca$h.

Pre-registration is highly recommended. To register, click HERE to email Andy Coltart the Area H3 governor with your name, position, club, and area/city. We only have three officers trained thus far. Let’s pick up the pace!

A Roadmap For Mentors

Having a mentor can turbocharge your career as a Toastmaster on the Communication and Leadership tracks. To kick off our Mentorship program, Peninsula Toastmasters has created guidelines for the new mentor. This document outlines the 3 primary objectives of a mentor and provides a checklist of specific action items one may take to achieve those objectives.

Any roadmap for mentors will always be a work in progress. But as our wonderful mentors and mentees begin to cooperate and gain new experience, we will revise the document to incorporate new tactics and insights. The latest version of the Mentorship Program guidelines will always be found at the under “Members” section of on the Navigation menu.

As in any worthwhile endeavor, Momentum is critical and fleeting. Mentors and Mentees should reach out to each other as soon as possible. To ensure that the new member will be learning from a dedicated, experienced Toastmaster, all the mentors are current Officers. If you do not have someone’s email address, please check with Loni, our VP of Education.

Your questions and comments are welcome. You may also email Loni at:
