New Division L – Proposed for 2018-2019
New Division L – Southern Nevada
On November 30, 2017, fifteen of the sixteen areas in Southern Nevada had 5 or 6 active clubs. The realignment committee determined realignment was in the best interest of current clubs and new clubs.
In Southern Nevada, recruiting Area Directors is much easier when areas have four or five clubs. Each year, our Area Directors are trained to add 1 new club per area, thereby supporting the District mission statement. The realignment committee recommended five divisions with 4 areas for a total of 20 areas. Each area will start on July 1 2018 with either 4 or 5 clubs.
This realignment will better meet our members’ needs in balancing their career, family, and volunteer efforts as members step up to district leadership. The realignment committee reviewed every club’s 5 year DCP performance, meeting location, meeting day of the week, and meeting time. Secondarily, the areas / divisions were scrutinized to ensure each area did not have multiple clubs meeting at the same day and time. And lastly, to satisfy club requests to stay or move with the next realignment effort.
The Southern Nevada clubs approved the recommended alignment at the January 2018 Toastmaster Leadership Institute. Thereby, allowing for the DEC and the district council to approve the realignment at the Spring 2018 Conference. The realignment will take effect on July 1 2018 for the 2018-2019
District 33 continues to adhere to Policy 7 District Structure, Section 1, and subsection D, to meet the members needs and for the best interests of all clubs.
