4. Please assist Randy Estrella, our VP-Public Relations as he works to increase our social media presence:

Randy requests that you provide your Facebook username or email to start adding you to the Facebook page. First Randy will send you a request to friend you and then he’ll be able to add you to the group. Also, due to the fact that there is also another Helmsmen Club in Texas, the group name will have to have a different one to prevent confusion. Here are some suggestions, Helmsmen Pentagon Toastmasters, Helmsmen DC Toastmasters, Helmsmen DC Toastmasters Club 2412 or Helmsmen Pentagon Toastmasters Club 2412. Please send Randy an email to see which one you like the most and/or if you have any other suggestions.

He looks forward to your responses as well as your Facebook username.

Also – If you need help creating a Facebook page and/or take selfies to post them, please let Randy know.
