Cessnock Toastmasters Club member Nellie Beggs has been recognised for her work as Area 12 Director.

Nellie was named Area Director of the Year at the recent awards ceremony for Toastmasters District 90, which covers 34 Toastmaster Areas across Sydney and Northern NSW.

Nellie has spent two years as the Area 12 Director, working with Cessnock (where she is also vice-president), Muswellbrook, Maitland, Singleton and Port Stephens clubs, each of which have expressed appreciation for her enthusiasm and support.

District 90 director Monique Tonna said Nellie is a well-deserving recipient of the award.

"She has a can-do attitude and is always willing to go above and beyond to help and support the clubs in her Area and Division," she said.

Cessnock Toastmasters meet at Cessnock Leagues Club every Monday night at 7pm, with the November 30 meeting to be the club's contest night.
