District Council Meetings (DCMs) are an opportunity for you, as leaders in your clubs and the District, to learn more about what is going on in the District and have your say on what happens this year. This is the first of two DCMs for the 2021-22 Toastmasters year and will be held online, via Zoom. Your attendance at this meeting will help make sure any decisions made here reflect the wishes of our members across the District.
Agenda Items – Motions
Your club has the opportunity to submit agenda items, via a motion, for inclusion in the next meeting. As per Renton’s Rules [2.70], except in cases of short announcements, the discussion is not permitted unless a motion is placed before the chair.
If you would like to propose a motion at the District Council meeting, sufficient notice of the motion needs to be given to all district council members and will be addressed as a motion on notice for the September 19th District Council meeting. Your motions need to be emailed to the D73 District Parliamentarian by 11:59 pm, 10th September 2020.
If you would like to discuss your motion prior to submission, please contact your Area or Division Director, the District Director, Program Quality Director, Club Growth Director, or District Parliamentarian. Contact details can be found on the D73 website.
If you would like assistance in wording motions, please refer to How to Write a Motion or contact Vince Camilleri, D73 Parliamentarian: .
