Welcome to the 2019 Toastmasters year. I hope everyone is back, recharged and ready to go after the winter break.

Esprit de Corps was quite busy just before Christmas with the Christmas Party and then officer elections. Now it is time to turn back to Pathways and speech contests!

Upcoming events:

LOCATION CHANGE: February 4, 2019 — Saalbau Gallus! Only for this meeting.

February 4, 2019 (tentative) Club Contests (International Speech, Evaluation and TableTopics)

February 26, 2019: Area F3/F4 English speech contests. Saalbau Bornheim

March 23, 2019: Division F conference and speech contests

If you’d like to volunteer to help with the club contests (judges, timers, ballot counters) please let any officer know.

We are counting on your support to make sure these are high quality events that support your speaking and leadership development.

World of Toastmasters

The Toastmasters International Convention was held in Chicago and crowned a new World Champion of Public Speaking, Ramona J. Smith. You can see her winning speech on YouTube.

Closer to home, our next meeting, on September 3 at Saalbau Dornbusch is shaping up nicely with three prepared speeches, TableTopics and (of course) evaluations.

It’s also time to start collecting membership dues for the second semester. Please get your dues in early so Esprit de Corps can continue to support its mission of leadership and public speaking development.

Meeting on Monday

Esprit de Corps is excited to have a new member and first-time Toastmaster moderate our next meeting on 27 August. The agenda is shaping up well and it’s certain to be a great meeting. One speaker will deliver a speech on a freely chosen topic and another will speak about the Mentor/Protege relationsfoip.

Those speeches, plus Table Topics (impromptu speeches) and evaluations makes a full agenda. Please be at Saalbau by 19:15 so we can network before the meeting and still start on time.

See you then!

Next Meeting: 13 August at Saalbau Dornbusch

I hope everyone is having a great summer. It seems like the weather has finally cooled off a little and we can resume meeting at our normal place at Saalbau Dornbusch.

Saalbau can be reached by taking the U1, U2, U3, U8 lines from Frankfurt to the Dornbusch stop. From there it’s on the north-east corner of the intersection over a Reformhaus grocery.
