Are you considering taking the next step in your leadership development?

Each year at the annual business meeting held at the spring conference, the District Council – made up of district officers and the President and VP Education of each active club – elects a new team of leaders for the District, just like a new set of officers for the club. Elected leadership roles are: District Director, Program Quality Director, Club Growth Director and Division Directors. Other roles to support the District including Area Director, Finance Manager, PR Manager, Administration Manager, and Logistics Manager are appointed by the elected leadership team. Every July 1st when a new group of leaders begins their term, they test their skills managing and leading the District in ensuring that our members get what they paid for out of Toastmasters. This doesn’t just happen. It takes leaders that are committed to helping the District succeed. Our next district leader could be you! Find out more about the District Executive Committee Roles here.

Join the Team!

Call for Nominations

Christine Lewis, DTM

District Director

Hi, my fellow Toastmasters.
It is my honor to serve you as the Program Quality Director of District 31.

It is my personal initiative to provide access to the tools that our leaders and members need to complete their personal development goals and to transition to Pathways to continue their journey.

As a Solution Architect and Cyber Security Leader for a medium-sized insurance company, leadership and communication are critical. Much of my career has been in Information Technology, I also enjoy training and coaching others.

I was an unlikely Toastmaster when a peer brought me to my first meeting in 2011. I was terrified. Less than a year later, after finding my voice, I chartered my home corporate club and completed my first Competent Communicator award. The journey has been fun and rewarding.

My leadership skills grew as I advanced from club officer to Area Director to Division Governor and now to your Program Quality Director. It’s an exciting time at Toastmasters with the new Pathways Education rolling out. Modernization of many of the projects offers more opportunities for our members to grow in this digital world without losing track of foundational communication and leadership skills.

Join me as we discover new paths and let’s make this a fun year!

Anthony Alexander, DTM

Program Quality Director

Hello fellow Toastmasters and friends! I am excited to be able to serve the district this year as Program Quality Director!
For those who I have not yet met, I have been a Toastmaster for 4 years and have been all-in within the organization since I have joined. As a quick recap I have served in multiple club officer, district leader, volunteer roles within the district and roughly around the time that you have read this, I will have achieved my DTM, twice!
Outside of Toastmasters, I am an Assistant Vice President of the country’s oldest privately-owned private bank and serve as an executive within our fund administration division. Much of my career requires dynamic leadership, interpersonal communication, presentation skills, strategic relationship management, active listening and adaptability. Skills that I continually test and refine within Toastmasters.
Since 2015, I have always supplemented my annual goals both personally and professionally with the Toastmasters program. Although I was a well-established team leader at the time, there was a lot of value that I found by level setting what my strengths and weaknesses are and challenging them within the roles that I took on within Toastmasters. As time went on, I found that with each leadership role that I took on, new opportunities kept opening for me professionally and in non-profit work.
My goal for this year is to help others create their own opportunities utilizing the Toastmasters program like what I have gained through the program. I look forward to a year filled with events, new ideas, exciting challenging and limitless opportunities!

Trevor Crippen

Club Growth Director

Hello fellow Toastmasters and friends! I’m thrilled to serve in 2019-20 as Club Growth Director for District 31.

My goal is to build strong, sustainable new clubs and to set up club leaders, mentors, and coaches to be successful in making their clubs vibrant and healthy.

We have a lot of work to do in District 31 building up our clubs, but I’m excited to work with leaders across the District in the effort.

I love the energy of being around excited, new Toastmasters. To illustrate that: I volunteer at sample meetings just for fun and my favorite officer role is Vice President of Membership. I did not expect to enjoy these roles. I’m glad Toastmasters gave me the opportunity to discover something new about myself. And I’m going to have a blast continuing to focus on Club Growth at the District level.

I have been a part of Toastmasters since 2014, when I joined as a charter member of Curious Toasters in Boston. I’m also a member of Norwood Toastmasters Club and Boston Advanced Toastmasters. I’ve previously served as an Area Director and Division Director, and was the Conference Chair for CLCON 2019, the Communication and Leadership Conference hosted by District 31 Toastmasters.

Outside of Toastmasters, I work as a Corporate Rights Analyst at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and I live in Walpole with my wife and daughter.

Matthew Morency

Division A Director

Matt started his Toastmaster journey in 2007. He has served in the majority of the club officer roles at least once. He has also served as a club sponsor, a club mentor, a TLI dean, and an area governor. As a result, he probably has an answer to your question and it probably include “let’s look it up in the new manual to be sure”.
