The Division J Annual Conference is to be held this year on May 4th.

This is the day when the best of the best within the Division will be competing against one another to move forward to the highest level in the District. It is also a day for all of us to share our achievements for the year and to meet one another – remember that the Division has grown from around 350 members in the beginning to around 700 plus now – so there are many within our family for us to get introduced. Not only this, we have been crowned the PRESIDENT’S DISTINGUISHED DIVISION and we are expecting to have all our Areas to reach THE PRESIDENT’S DISTINGUISHED AREA STATUS within the next one and half months – so it is time to celebrate.

    Congratulations to all the Eligible Bachelors of the entire UAE – they are IN for a surprise when they choose (& qualify) for the marriage of this CENTURY.

    Congratulations to LAGOON TM for producing the most Humorous Toastmaster of Division J. I, on behalf of Apple toastmasters would like to extend our congratulations and extend the best of wishes for a repeat (& effective) performance at Bahrain. God willing, I would be fortunate enough to witness the electrifying performance once again. I have already started visualizing on what would the post marriage experiences be! At least a couple more humorous speeches?

    Good luck TM Shurouq!!
