Announcements & Events

Time is flying by so fast ... 8 months have passed since the start of the term 2012/13 and I feel that I just manage to get things moving somewhat smoothly. Now it with only 4 more months to go, there are still much to be done. Whenever I deliver my addresses in the club, there are times when I thought that I had to think of something elaborate and impressive to say ... but then I remember about project #3 of the Competent Communicator manual, GET TO THE POINT - so that's what I'm going to do ...

First and foremost, the important dates to remember and be prepared for;
  • Area B4 International Speech and Table Topics Contest.
    Date/Time: 2 March 13 (Saturday), 1:30pm to 5:30pm, at Lafarge Malayan Cement Toastmasters Club.
    Venue: Level 12, Bangunan TH Uptown 3, No 3 Jalan SS 21/39, Damansara Uptown, 47400 Petaling Jaya, Selangor.
  • D'Utama Annual General Meeting (AGM).
    Date/Time: 18 May 13 (Saturday), 6:00pm to 10:00pm.
    Venue: To be announced.
  • D'Utama Toastmasters Club's Installation Nite.
    Date/Time: 29 June 13 (Saturday), 6:00pm to 10:00pm.
    Venue: To be announced.

Other events that the club will part of
  • Division B International Speech Contest and Table Topic Contest.

The GOOD NEWS;

  • The club will be conducting its annual Youth Leadership Program (YLP) to give back to our community and equip our future. More details will be release soon.
 There are more to say but I believe in good time, hence I shall stop here for now.


Yours truly,
Johnson Yike DTM
Club President
