There is no doubt that the impact of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) on individuals and communities both inside and outside of Toastmasters has escalated over the past week in Southern Africa and across the globe. Toastmasters International has provided us with directives regarding District events:
- Following a directive received from Toastmasters International Area, Division and the District contests will not take place in person, we may hold these contests online.
- Club meetings and contests may continue, in person or online.
- RoyalCon on the 7-10 May is cancelled, we will communicate refund procedures shortly.
- The District 74 Annual District Council Meeting, where we elect our leaders and take decisions will be conducted online on the 9th May 2020
Toastmasters encourage clubs to meet online if necessary, so that you may continue your educational journey and use this opportunity to practice skills and become proficient in utilizing online programs and meeting tools. Please continue to use the education program and material available to us.
Toastmasters International is committed to working with District leadership and members to provide the best support possible. Additional information is available on www.toastmasters.org/covid19.
We appreciate your dedication during these difficult times and will continue to keep you updated
Taking #onestepforward with you,
Nikki Quinn, DTM
District Director - District 74
