Heartiest congratulations to Division N Governor Koay Kah Hin. You make us in Division N and Bayan Baru Toastmasters Club proud.
Toastmasters International awards for Division level are Distinguished Division, Select Distinguished Division and the highest being the President's Distinguished Division.
Last year for the term 2008-2009, Division N did not even achieve the Distinguished Division Award. So this year for the term 2009-2010, this is a major, mega, quantum jump!
As of April 30, 2010, the total paid up clubs in Division N is 28 which is a net growth of 1 club and 5 out of 7 Areas have achieved Distinguished Area or better. The criteria for President's Distinguished Division award is a net growth of 1 club and 75% of Area achieving Distinguished Area by June 30, 2010. And Division N has done it two months ahead of time. Well done!
