Amsterdam. We are all very proud!
She received the medal for Distinguished Toastmaster, along with five other Toastmasters of District 59. This is a personal achievement by working through all the levels of the educational program of Toastmasters International.
During the Hall of Fame event on Sunday Morning, Sandra Van de Cauter was handed the Award for President Distinguished Division 2014-15 as the Division Governor of that term. This Award is achieved when the Division reaches the following milestones: at least 50% of the Division’s Clubs reach ‘Distinguished’ status, meaning that they gain five DCP points and at least one new club.

She successfully lead a team of 14 people to realign former Division E into three divisions with an unanimous vote and was active on the nomination committee to help find the leaders for this years division.
