DTAC 2019 – Create a Legacy

Fellow Toastmasters of District 20! DTAC has fallen upon us once more.

How time sure flies!

This year, DTAC focuses on Creating your Legacy. We as Toastmasters go on delivering speeches and taking up leadership roles, but we rarely stop to consider what difference we’re making, and what impact we have on the audience, or to the teams we work with! Have we set a benchmark for the future leaders and communicators to come? Perhaps it’s time to start!

Creating your Legacy has grown to be a vision for many leaders in the District, and as Toastmasters, taking the initiative to continue that legacy and make your own mark in your roles brings out your best selves.

With that, we evolve and grow beyond our limits. DTAC this year is pushing to create its own legacy to inspire the next predecessors to do more for the years to come.

With diligent months of planning and meetings, we hope to deliver a Legacy that would inspire you to move above and beyond.

We hope you’re all excited for what’s in store this year, we know we are! Best of luck to the leaders and speakers at DTAC 2019!

Khurram Salman,

DTM District 20 Director.
