Rockford Toastmaster member elected to statewide position

Ron Musich, an honorary charter member of Rockford’s North Kent Community Toastmaster club, has been elected to the position of district governor for Toastmaster’s District 62. District 62 covers most of Michigan outside of Detroit.

In this position, Musich will govern the 91 Michigan Toastmaster clubs, which are outside of Detroit. His responsibilities include establishing new clubs, running semi-annual conferences, maintaining membership, and promoting the educational programs of Toastmasters International.

From one club started in 1924 at the YMCA in Santa Ana, Calif., Toastmasters has grown to become the world’s leading organization, teaching public speaking and leadership skills and helping people conquer their pre-speech jitters. The nonprofit organization has approximately 250,000 members in 12,500 clubs in 106 countries.

The Rockford club meets on the first and third Tuesday of the month from 7 to 8:45 p.m.
