Time to navigate your path to excellent leadership! We invite you to attend the Pathways focused Toastmasters Leadership Institute.
17 presenters are set to deliver 12 impactful Breakout Sessions for you to choose from. If you are an officer, you can be trained for your role and attend another session in the morning or afternoon.
Pathways Unleashed is a special session being offered during both breakouts. Bring your laptop/tablet and learn how to access this awesome program and bring this knowledge back to your club and be a Pathways Star!
Our Keynote presenter is Charley Patton, our Toastmasters Region 2 Advisor, and excellent trainer. Be prepared to Listen, Learn, and Lead with Intent: From Voluntold to Volunteer.
All members or potential members are encouraged to attend. The event is free! Please bring a potluck Item to contribute.

See you there!
Come support one of our prison clubs as they promote themselves to their fellow inmates. The Open House will be in the chow hall at Columbia River Correctional Institution and will include the option for visitors to purchase a dinner of rotisserie chicken, dinner rolls, and mac & cheese. The price for the dinner is to be determined and would need to be paid in advance (November 22 I think), but people also have the option to attend the Open House for free. Guest attendance is capped at 40 people. Advanced screening may be required if you haven’t visited this prison club before.
I will update this announcement as I receive more information from the event organizer.

Club Contests can start as early as December 1st. You have until March 2nd to finish them. Have fun! They are an excellent opportunity to thrive and grow as a speaker and leader!
Other than selecting the best speakers to represent our areas, our goal is to get this contest completed within 2 hours, or less. Given that we might have up to 16 contestants in total, to achieve the two-hour completion goal, we need your help. Here’s what you can do to help all of us:
Contestants check-in starts at 9:20 am. All contestants must check-in no later than 9:45 am, failure to do so will result in disqualification.
Drawing of the order of presentations for contestants is on a first-come-first-serve basis.
Judges, Ballet Counter, Timer, etc.
Briefing for volunteers starts at 9:45 am. All volunteers please plan to be at the location a few minutes early.
Call for Volunteers:
Our ideal scenario would be to have a judge from each club to ensure equal representation in the judging of the contests. If you can and are willing, please contact the organizer to volunteer. We promise that we will be done by 12:00 noon.
PS: Area 32 & 33 covers Corvallis, Lebanon, and Newport.
