Spring 2016 Conference Program Ads

Fellow Toastmasters:

Did you enjoy the Fall 2015 Conference? You can be a part of the Spring 2016 conference by placing an ad in our conference program. Ad space for our program is available now.

You may be wondering why you would want to place an ad. To that I say: why wouldn’t you want to place an ad?

Do you want an additional opportunity to promote your club? Do you want to recognize your club for achieving Distinguished status? Do you want to congratulate a member of your club for his or her achievements this year? Do you want to thank a fellow Toastmaster who was particularly helpful to you and your club? Do you have your own business, products, or services to advertise? Placing an ad in our conference program allows you the opportunity to do any and all of those things.

Ad space is available for purchase online now through the District 83 website. Once you have purchased your ad space, kindly e-mail a copy of the ad to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it following the specifications listed below. Please note that the deadline for all ads is April 1, 2016 (no fooling!) to allow time for the program to go to press.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or if you want to review the ad options in more detail. Thank you again for your interest in supporting the District 83 Spring Conference through your ad!

Step Up to Success!
