Top 10 Reasons To Attend Conference
Here are ten reasons why you should attend:
#10: It’s the cool thing to do. When you attend the conference, you will stand out as one of the movers and shakers of District 50. Think of the conference as the Academy Awards of our district, with plenty of recognition and photo ops to go around.
#9: Make new friends. Our district is diverse, and members who attend conferences are just the types of people you want to meet… outgoing, interesting and fun-loving.
#8: Make new contacts. This is huge. If you aspire to be a leader in District 50, attending the Spring Conference is a great way to mingle with the people who can help you make that happen.
#7: Learn from the best. You will have multiple opportunities to expand your knowledge at the conference education sessions and keynotes. You can also meet and talk with district leaders at lunch, dinner and other events for guidance and advice on how to get the most from your Toastmasters Experience.
#6: Make a difference for someone else. Bring a guest or fellow Toastmaster who has never attended a Conference. You can open up a whole new Toastmaster Experience for them.
#5: Cheer for your favorite contestant at the District Speech Contests. From the club level to the conference, the contests are part of what makes Toastmasters exciting and fun. District contests are amazing and you can learn from the best in the district as you enjoy the competition.
#4: Discover some great bargains. The conference auctions are legendary for offering interesting, fun and highly-desirable items that you can bid on. Not only can you get a great deal, the district gets a great deal, too, because all the proceeds go into the district treasury to help us fund district activities.
#3: Expand your horizons. Taking charge of your professional growth is the key to success. Use this opportunity to learn and grow. It can help you succeed in the short term and the long term.
#2: Become a district insider. By attending the District Business Meeting, you will learn the state of District 50, and witness the district leader election process. This is important because you will get a unique perspective on how the district operates, its challenges and goals.
