District Conference 2023

May 2023 in Aarhus, Denmark

Celebrating the Past, Embracing the Future

Fellow Toastmasters,

You are cordially invited to attend the 2023 District 95 Conference which is taking place in Aarhus, Denmark on May 12th – 14th, 2023.

2023 is a symbolic year for our district: 5 years since the last reformation and 5 years of Pathways implementation, 50 years membership open to women, as well as 10 years Aarhus Toastmasters club chartering. There are many reasons to meet and celebrate. And not less reasons to embrace the future of our organization!

The conference will be conducted in a hybrid format, which gives our members an equal possibility to attend the conference in person, as well as online.

We invite all members from D95 to actively participate in the organization of the event! This is an exceptional opportunity for your growth path in effective communication and leadership skills.

The spring conference team is highly motivated to work with all interested members willing to actively participate to the conference.

We look forward to meeting you in Aarhus!

On behalf of the Conference Team
Svetlana Breum
Conference Chair
