We Did It Again

June 16, 2010

Toast of CIBC completes another outstanding year on June 30.  Our many notable accomplishments include:

  • Two of our club members competed in Division F level speech contests in the spring:  Sheila Watson (Evaluator Contest) and Hondy Hung (International Speech Contest).
  • Once again this year, we achieved President’s Distinguished Club status, the highest level of Toastmasters club success.
  • Congratulations to those who added designations this year:
    • Competent Communicators, Anton Coetzee, Peter Lizon, Amy Xu and Arindam Maitra.
    • Competent Leaders, Sheila Watson and Robin Ji.
    • Advanced Communicator Bronze, Sheila Watson.
    • Advanced Leader Bronze, Sheila Watson.
  • Several other members are close to achieving Advanced Communicator Bronze, most notably Anton Coetzee, Victoria Barclay, and Lin Zhu.
  • In addition, we added eleven members to the club and have been very visible contributors at the Area and Division levels of Toastmasters.
  • We held our annual Social Event on May 19 at Marche Restaurant, BCE Place.  It was a highly enjoyable experience for those who attended.  Expect more such gatherings soon!
  • It is with great pleasure that we announce our current President, Sheila Watson, has been appointed Division F Governor.  In the new Toastmasters year commencing July 1, Sheila will have oversight of six Areas comprising twenty-two Clubs in downtown Toronto.  Toast of CIBC is very proud and wishes her the best of luck in the new role!
  • Why suffer boredom this summer?  Toast of CIBC will be active throughout the summer months, meeting every Thursday at 12.00, usually in the Commerce Court North Second Floor Boardroom at 25 King Street W.  Come out and see us for an uplifting hour in your week.
