A Successful Division F Conference
Division F successfully held the Division F Conference on Saturday 6th March 2021. This was the first of the eight conferences that will take place under the district this year.
A lot of toastmasters activities are online today. Virtual meetings have become the norm because of the current global pandemic. Division F took a bold step to make this conference a hybrid event. This means twice the work went in to make the event a success at both the virtual and physical fronts.
The team did great mobilization to ensure that hundreds of people registered for this event and over 50 members were at the physical event hosted at the spacious Forest Cottages, Bukoto. We also secured sponsors and exhibitors. This support added pop and pomp to the event. Our sponsors included; Stanbic Bank, Rotary International, Joint Medical Stores, IOTEC, CSR and GALA.
The major highlight of the event was the contest. All four contests of International Speech, Evaluation, Tall Tales and Table Topics happened on the same day. Contestants taking part were the winners from the earlier organised Area contests. The contestants’ journey that started at the club level is far from over, as the winners can now start preparations for the District Conference in May 2021. These include Harriet O’city for International Speech, Doreen Baingana for Evaluation, Anne Tasamba for Table Topics and Paul Kavuma for the Tall Tales Contents.
We also had keynote and guest speakers that spiced up the already eventful event with great take-aways and inspirational messages. These included Toastmaster Eric Muriithi, Coach Joan Mugenzi and Motivational Speaker Ethan Musolini.
The Organizers of the Division F Conference are grateful to everyone that contributed to the success of the event. We look forward to similar collaboration in the future. In the same spirit, the Division recognised Toastmaster Patricia Nanteza for the Most Valuable Player award and Toast Master Alex Agaba for the Magic Member award for their outstanding contributions to the Division throughout the year 2020-2021. Congratulations to all the contest winners on that day. See you at the TEACON, in Mombasa.
