Roseman Elected CSC Incorporated Toastmasters Club President
Cover & Rossiter’s Luci Roseman was recently elected President of her local Toastmasters International club, CSC Incorporators Toastmasters Club. Joining Toastmasters International as part of her professional development plan has added tremendous value to her career at Cover & Rossiter, where she is currently a supervisor in the tax department. “I’ve taken on more of a leadership role with our newest staff members and have developed and presented various classes,” Roseman said. “I’m constantly asking for feedback to continue to improve my communication and leadership skills,” she added.
Besides her professional development, Roseman has also seen the positive benefits Toastmasters has had in her personal life. An avid horseback rider in her spare time, she sees parallels between her hobby and her involvement with Toastmasters. “I think that Toastmasters and horseback riding feed off of each other,” she said. “Whether you’re in front of an audience or on top of a horse, it’s important to hide any butterflies you may have, otherwise they’ll sense that nervousness.” In terms of leadership, just as with people, “It’s important to establish trust in order for the horse to let you lead them.”
Roseman is excited to take on the role of President of her Toastmasters club and continue the path of the Club’s previous President. “I want to keep it fun and energizing for the members and also continue to bring in new members.” With regards to her new role, Roseman said, “If you would have asked me a year ago if I could see myself as president, I would have said ‘No way!’”
