Koramangala Toastmasters Session No 10

Thought of the day :
Impossible is nothing, the word itself says I m possible and we all together made it possible.

Word of the day : resilient, an adjective meaning Recovering readily from adversity, depression, or the like.

The meeting started exactly 10.30am with a brilliant opening note by our club president Aravind, followed by introduction about Toastmaster movement by Toastmaster of the Day, Prakash.

In the first part of the meeting we had two excellent prepared speeches by
1. Ramesh (Project 1)
2. Prabhu Dev(Project 3)

This was followed by an exciting Table Topic session by TTM Ritu. All the table topics were from diverse fields and everybody thoroughly enjoyed the session.

It was great to listen the General Evaluator Srujana and her Team, for their valuable and constructive feedback.

Koramanagala Toastmasters Club Bangalore Chartered !!

It gives us great pleasure to announce that Chartering of Koramanagala Toastmasters Club Bangalore is finally done. We narrowly missed the 31st December cut off date for club-chartering. Had it been done before that, all current Club Officers would have been eligible for credit  against January 2012 to June 2012 term. It was the long holidays, especially at the tail end of holiday season(Christmas, New Year) , that went against us and delayed the club chartering. Although we are yet to hit the magical number in terms of membership strength, the excitement and enthusiasm shown by fellow members indicate that we will hit this milestone sooner than later.

After having the inaugural session on 19th Nov 2011, the club has been chartered within a month and half, which is nothing sort of remarkable. Kudos to all Koramanagala Toastmasters Club Members, special mention for Joseph Sebastian, Arvind Dhar and Reekhia Basu, who put in an incredible amount of effort in getting this done.

Thanks for all members’ continued support, encouragement and guidance. Hope to keep the momentum going in the new year 2012 🙂
