PASSING THE GUARD
January 2011If you live through your life, you will not realize the thingswhich have changed. But, if u give a thought, ponder upon thethings which matter, you might realize a lot has changed with-out much attention. All you did was your duty, took some help
from others, saw your friends stand next to you and wallah! It‘s
all done.. Something similar happened when I was in charge of the club from July'10. There were DCP goals, concern for thequality of the club, concerns for other things regarding the club.Piece by piece, meeting by meeting, month by month, all wassorted just like that.Our term did not have many EC members left by the end of the term. But, those whowere there, made sure there was nothing that they could not handle. They made surethat no one could notice that it was mere few who were handling the job of 7 fullytrained officials. Yes, they were not trained in some specific aspect of the job, but noone could tell the difference. These are those people who excel in their life and fulfilltheir dreams and turn them into reality. They surely made my job very easy. I'll missthe time I spent with these true leaders.Isn't that why we are here in the first place? Isn't learning and excelling the first ob- jective of joining Toastmasters? I have full confidence in the new EC and I am surethey will take our club to new heights. I was asked to write this down for the Newslet-ter and I was not sure of what I would write. But when I got to write it down, all of itis coming naturally from the heart. This is the impact the club and its people have hadon me. I'll surely miss them all....Before I say goodbye, I would like to say "All the Best" to the new EC and to VikasKr. Malik in particular who has to lead the pack of 7 prominent leaders having differ-ent responsibilities of their own.

Akhil Sood ( VP - Education), Shraddha Nakra (VP -Membership), Shreeja Kumar (VP - Public Relations), VinayJain (Treasurer), Sameep Taneja (Secretary) and Sanchit Aggar-wal (Sergeant at arms) for being selected as the Executive Committee. I would like tothank the Selection committee of our club which has shown their trust in this team. It isthis team's hard work, skills and perseverance which will help our club to reach newer heights.Serving a club with tradition of achievements is a matter of pride and it is my privilege to be given charge of this "Always Ahead" club. It is said that to be at the top is easier thanstaying at the top. Continuous improvement with the ability to reinvent is the utmost re-quirement of sustained success. Last Executive Committee in their term has set theachievement bar at a new high. JPKU Toastmasters Club has already achieved the coveted"President's Distinguished Club" Award. Congratulations to all members and EC team for
the same. Now, it‘s our duty to follow the path laid down by our predecessors and then go
beyond what has already been achieved.For fellow EC members, my message is to take guidance from our predecessors and striveour best to reach the standards set and then go past them. For members of club, my mes-sage is to be present and participate. The quality of the club, its meetings is defined by thequality of its members and for that members need to participate in all the activities of theclub.I wish you all the success and many new beginnings in your life.
