On November 17, Best of Dallas Toastmasters held their bi-annual officer elections. The word of the day was suffrage, a noun, meaning the right to vote. Over half of the elections were contested, and all candidates gave brief speeches about their roles. In the end, these were the results:

Also unanimously elected by the membership was Johnny Nguyen as Chair of the Mentorship Committee. Kirdric Hill was nominated for the position of webmaster, pending his acceptance.
All officers have committed to attending one of the Toastmasters Leadership Institute trainings for their role, so that we can continue to achieve 100% officer training this year. Best of luck to all our officers and members in the new year!
