2016 Fall Conference
Our 2016 Fall Conference on November 11th & 12th was a fantastic success! We welcomed Past Toastmasters International President Michael Notaro as our keynote speaker, along with a talented roster of workshop presenters.
In keeping with our conference theme of “Celebrating Our Freedom of Speech,” we honored our veterans. We recognized the work of Heroes In Action, a Toledo-based organization that sends care packages to U.S. Armed Forces personnel overseas, and joined them in creating some care packages of our own.
We were honored to be joined by a number of veterans from within our Toastmasters ranks, as well as from the Toledo community at large. We were pleased to host Dr. Harold Brown, Lt. Colonel USAF (retired) and former Tuskegee Airman, who presented “Keep Your Airspeed Up: The Story of a Tuskegee Airman” for the benefit of conference attendees.
Finally, we capped off each night of the conference with a contest: Table Topics on Friday night, and our Humorous Speech Contest on Saturday. Congratulations to all of our winners from both contests!
Save the Date
We’re already looking forward to the 2017 Spring Conference, scheduled for May 19th & 20th at the Doubletree Hilton in Dearborn!
