District Conference Greeting from International President Matt Kinsey

Join fellow Toastmasters and guests for this unique educational and networking experience that will change your future.

Personal development is one of the best investments you can make, and it always benefits you. Whether you want to IGNITE your speaking abilities to further your career, reach your volunteering goals, or improve your skills, this year’s District 11 Spring Personal Development Conference will light the fire within you that you need to succeed. 

This year’s conference features Craig Valentine LIVE AND IN PERSON.


Craig is an award-winning motivational speaker, speech coach, and best-selling author. He has helped thousands of individuals and hundreds of organizations reap the profitable rewards that comes with presenting with impact and persuading with ease.


Our Friday night keynote speaker is Dr. Magnus Jansson. He will educate us on the skill of Improv. I assure you this hilarity should not be missed. Magnus will keep you on your toes and on the edge of your seat.

Rev. Jamie Bell

Rev. Jamie Bell is the Executive Pastor for Caring Place and has given the last twenty years to helping others change their world. As a teenager, he felt he didn’t have what it took to contribute much of anything, let alone make a difference in the world. Barely passing high school, he now has years of experience in higher education, ministry, and coaching, impacting others to live to their highest potential.

Marcy Renken

Marcy Renken, mother of six and Army veteran, began pursuing her passion for speaking in 2013. She launched Mom with Purpose in 2022 to empower mothers to reach their potential. Marcy inspires and motivates others through her stories, making a difference in the world.
