To District 23 Toastmasters who have yet to attend a district conference, we encourage you to attend the Fall 2017 Conference October 27 – 29, 2017 in Albuquerque, NM.  First Timer registration is $110 for the entire conference (this includes all keynote speakers, contests, education sessions, and meals).  Please register by October 18, 2017.

Your rebel conference committee is waiting to welcome you to our District 23 Galaxy in Albuquerque, NM.  Every single Toastmaster at this Fall District Conference has been a First Timer once.  This is your chance.  We cannot wait to meet you!

For those worried about not knowing anyone.  Don’t.  Toastmasters, especially in District 23, are very friendly.  We love to meet and get to know new people.  By Sunday, you will have over 100 new friends.

Attending a District Conference commits you to Toastmasters in a whole new way.  You will meet and hear from people who were once first time conference attendees just like you, but are now internationally sought after professional speakers!  You will be amazed by the contestants in the speech contest.  They will inspire you to get to that big stage at the next district conference.  Best of all you will be surrounded by other Toastmasters who share the same goals you do.  As Toastmaster we are there to help each other attain those goals.

To get your feet wet on Friday evening make sure you attend the First Timers Social.  Then the fun begins.  Keynote speaker, George Gilbert, the district Evaluation Contest, and even karaoke after a long afternoon of education.  There will also be a Star Wars themed costume contest, so dust off your Chewbacca mask and get ready for a great time!

Don’t stay up too late, because Saturday starts bright and early with keynote speaker, Patricia Fripp, a second keynote from George Gilbert, and breakout sessions.  Then get ready for the Humorous Speech contest and the Distinguished Toastmaster Ceremony.

You will wrap up on Sunday with more education sessions, including information on Toastmasters new education program, Pathways.
