August 24 @ The Convention

By Christopher Teo

The highlight of the day was the Golden Gavel Luncheon. The event began with the parade of the Distinguished District Governors for 1999-2000. Our District 51 was the President's Distinguished District and was represented by IPDG Maimunah Natasha DTM.

The 2000 Golden Gavel recipient was Nido Qubein. He was selected as one of the Five Outstanding Speakers of 1999 by Toastmasters International. I enjoyed Nido's view about the journey from success to significance. Nido shared that success is about happiness while significance is about fulfillment. This is a timely reminder for our district to move beyond, to strive for significance in all we do.

The evening was a time to get to know the candidates (for Internation Director) through a showcase session. Our Past District Governor Augustine Lee DTM will be running for this position representing the Overseas Region. The Annual General Meeting will be held the following day, 25 Aug 2000. On behlaf of the district, we extend our best wishes to Augustine for his campaign.
