To those who missed the 2015 Midyear Conference in Bulacan, here’s a short video of what happened on the 2-day conference. The videos were able to capture a lot of the fun moments we had during the conference and part of the winning speech of the Impromptu Speech Champion from Division F – Leo Nogas.
MIDCON 2015 DAY 1
MIDCON 2015 DAY 2
The 2016 District Conference is going to be on April 28-30 at the Grand Convention Center, Cebu.
This afternoon, Area 51 Toastmasters, led by Area 51 Director Fredroe Para-on, had its Area Contest for Speech to Evaluate and Table Topics. The contest was held at Fontina, Iligan City, 2-5pm.
Area 51 is composed of 4 clubs:
BAVI Toastmasters Club
Iligan Toastmasters Club
Central CDO Toastmasters Club
Macajalar Bay Toastmasters Club
ACB Pamela Resurreccion – Contest Chair
Since I’m currently a district officer (Club Extension Chair) I’m taking a break from the contest arena this year. So for this afternoon, I was one of the judges. Having competed (and won) in both categories at the District Level, I can really say that Area 51 has really upped its game. The competition for this afternoon was tough. But of course, there can only be one Champion. Here are the results for the Area 51 Speech Contest.
Both the Champion and First Runner Up can move on to the Division Level this September 20, 2015 in Cagayan de Oro City.
Area 51 Speech Contest Judges
Congratulations to the winners and to all who joined! The fastest way to improve in Toastmasters is to join competitions. Joining contests allows you to be more intentional in improving your weaknesses and strengthening what you’re already good at. So to all Toastmasters out there, I challenge you to join the next competitions. Next year, it’s going to be Humorous Speech Contest and International Prepared Speech Contest. It’s nerve-wracking and mind-numbing but it’s worth it.
