Valley Town Toastmasters work hard to improve themselves through the communication and leadership programs.

This page is dedicated to recognizing our members' accomplishments.

November 17, 2012
Our club member, Tony Bratschitsch, was recognized at the District 86 Fall Conference as the Division Governor Of The Year for 2011-2012.
As Division L Governor, Tony was part of the team that guided its 31 clubs to the President's Distinguished Division status during the previous year.
The Division L team, including its seven Area Governors, were successful in organizing some of the most successful events in the district.
Good going, Tony!

Valley Town Toastmasters recognized its first Distinguished Toastmaster (DTM) when Tony Bratschitsch received his plaque from Toastmasters International.
The Distinguished Toastmaster is the organization's highest educational designation and is achieved after a member completes the requirements of the communication and education tracks.
Although our club has DTMs who have joined us from other clubs, Tony is the first member to have joined Valley Town that has achieved this level.
He is pictured in the photo with Kate Cave, club secretary.

Congratulations to Jonathan Spiegel for earning another Competent Communicator award!

Jonathan has long ago achieved the Distinguished Toastmaster designation - the highest Toastmaster level.

Yet, he continues to improve his communication skills by preparing and presenting speeches from various Toastmaster manuals.

Jonathan is pictured receiving his award from Marie Pavone, evening Chair.

Although the Competent Toastmaster level is the first one that all Toastmasters take, it is considered to be the most valuable training in improving personal communications.

Many Toastmasters have redone the CC to their satisfaction and self-improvement.

Thank you. Jonathan, for the inspiration!

Maureen Hills was recognized by Valley Town Toastmasters for achieving her Competent Communicator certification from Toastmasters International.
Completing the Competent Communication course requires working through ten projects that help develop different but supporting aspects of more effective communication.
Maureen presented all ten of her projects with superb effort, preparing each one diligently and with purpose.
As a result, she is now one of our club's finest communicators and, it is with pride, that we congratulate her.
Maureen is shown on the left in the photo receiving her award from evening chair Judy Shepalo.
Way to go, Maureen!
