Lubbock's Second Winter TLI

We are VERY happy to report that the majority (70%) of the Lubbock officers have been trained!  All 10 clubs have sent at least 4 officers to be trained and Articulate Toastmasters sent all 7!

We had a great turn out for the training this morning, and I want to thank everyone who showed up to participate and help out.  

Ryan and Andy did a fabulous job presenting about service leadership and evaluation.

And I think we all learned a lot during the DTM panel.  I believe Angelia said it best when she said "Just say YES!"

We look forward to seeing you all during our upcoming club visits and at our Area speech contest on March 7th.

Thank you for your leadership and your continued support,
