District 2 Conference

May 20 @ 8:00 am - 5:30 pm PDT

District 2 Conference

District 2 Toastmasters will gather for our Annual Conference both in person and online Saturday, May 20, 2023 8:00 AM at the Floral Hall building in Forest Park, Everett, WA for the first time since 2019. This will be an immersive community in action event to revitalize and reconnect with our Toastmasters values and with each other.

About This Year’s Event

In addition to reconnecting with the toastmasters’ community we have two wonderful speakers – Naomi and Larry!

Naomi Takeuchi

With over 18 years of experience as a Toastmaster, Naomi enjoys delivering impactful speeches that encourage us to think about our lives with meaning and purpose. Naomi is a dedicated Toastmaster having served in every officer role at the club level, all three TRIO roles as a District Officer and most recently as the 2019-2021 International Director from Region 1. She is a proud member of Seattle International 10, and she enjoys combining current events, science, pop culture and humor into her speeches. She will be delivering her first in-person keynote speech since February 2020. Her speech, ‘The Toastmasters Forest: Tapping the Power of the Wood Wide Web,’ will provide us some new insight and tools for growing tighter bonds, communicating effectively and cultivating community throughout District 2 and beyond

Larry Asher

Larry Asher is the director of the School of Visual Concepts (SVC), a role that was the inevitable result of saying “why not?” when asked in the 1990s if he’d like to teach a writing class at SVC. In the years since Larry has led the expansion of the School’s offerings into corporate professional development workshops, multi-month certificate programs in User Experience Design, and UX Writing & Content Design. In addition to leading the charge at SVC, Larry also teaches copywriting, case-study writing, presentation skills, and creative briefing and brief writing.

The Vibe

Come join us for a full day of speakers and reconnection in a retreat setting! This gathering is casual dress, as you may be walking the trails of the 500-acre woods.

Leading up to the full day conference, you can attend many special online events at no cost. Check out the full schedule below!
