How does a Division work and What is in it for me?

You

As member of a Toastmasters club you know that your club has an executive committee whose purpose is to serve and lead your club. Besides that, their role is to help each individual member, like you, to progress towards their personal goals.

Area

An Area is a collection of four to six clubs and an Area Governor is appointed (in District 59) to lead the Area. The role of an Area Governor is to provide help, knowledge and offer advice to the clubs that make up the area.
