Welcome to District 14 Pathways News.

Our Pathways Ambassadors are excited about this, the first major overhaul of the Toastmasters educational program since Dr. Smedley published the original basic training manual over 70 years ago.
This webpage supports and supplements the information you’ll receive from your Ambassador.  Check back frequently, as information will be added monthly.


Best wishes for a successful year!
J.D. Dirkschneider, DTM, PDG
