Ask A Director

The idea for this column began over dinner with District Governor, Linda Ulrich and Lt. Governor, Pan Kao who suggested a column for the District website. The concept is to provide a forum for the members to ask the International Director questions about the Toastmaster organization.

Feeling emboldened by two cups of decaf I said “sure, I can do that”. So here I am offering you the opportunity to ask me, your International Director (for the next two years), questions you may have about this amazing organization.

Are you curious about what a Director actually does? Just ask.

Do you want to know something about the history of Toastmasters? Ask me.

You may be wondering about the future of the organization-I will be happy to discuss.

The column is now live, so give some thought to what you want to know about Toastmasters, past, present and future. Send your questions to, and watch for the questions and answers to be posted here on this web site.

I look forward to hearing from you.
