It is the final term of 2017/2018. To end off the current exco's term, our next president, Eddy Lee hosts as the toastmaster of the evening. To celebrate the occasion off, the theme 'Celebrations' has been selected and Eddy can be seen with Baju Melayu to commemorate the recent Hari Raya festivals.

In Addition, we also have a special award that is given to the end of each term known as the Toastmaster of the Year Award. In this special occasion, we have our president, Patricia who managed to obtain the award to recognize all the effort and hard-work that she has placed into ITC Bintang Toastmasters Club.

We also have our senior members of the club to thank for. Our 'Council of Senior Members' aid in coaching and giving advises to the newer members of the club and guide them upon the path of being a toastmaster, sharing their expertise and experience throughout the journey.

Lastly, a celebration isn't a celebration without a cake to go with it. In appreciation to Patricia Low on behalf of ITC Bintang Toastmasters Club, thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
