North Country Toastmasters Congratulates Terry Goodemote and Steve Miller

GLENS FALLS — The North Country Toastmasters Club #6295 would like to congratulate two of its members, and servant leaders in the community, who recently completed the requirements to earn their Distinguished Toastmaster Award.  The Distinguished Toastmaster (DTM) award represents the highest level of educational achievement in Toastmasters. Less than one percent of all Toastmasters ever earn this status. North Country is one of five clubs locally in Area 74, which extends south from Saratoga/Malta region, up north to Plattsburgh, NY. District 53 is comprised of over 140 clubs throughout Connecticut, eastern New York and western Massachusetts. 

Terry Goodemote joined Toastmasters in April 2015 and was awarded his DTM December 24, 2019.  Terry retired as Executive Vice President, Treasurer, and Chief Financial Officer of Arrow Financial Corporation (Arrow) after 25 years of service to the company. Prior to joining Arrow, Terry worked in public accounting for many years as a Certified Public Accountant. He is a coach, mentor and role model who serves on many committees for the Turning Point District of the Twin Rivers Council BSA, is the Charter Partner Representative for BSA Troop 16 and Cub Scout Pack 16, is an active member and Past President of the Kiwanis Club of Glens Falls, is the current President of the Glens Falls Kiwanis Foundation, serves on the Adirondack District and Conference Council on Youth Ministries (CCYM) for the Upper NY Conference of the United Methodist Church and actively serves in many leadership roles for the United Methodist Church of Queensbury.  With the skills acquired in Toastmasters, Terry served as a summer enrichment instructor for SUNY Adirondack in a junior Toastmasters class specifically designed to encourage youth to serve with passion, lead with conviction and communicate with confidence. Terry is the current Club President and has served several other roles in the Club, Area 74 and District 53.

Steve Miller joined Toastmasters in July 2014 and was awarded his DTM January 11, 2020.  Steve retired in 2018 after more than 36 years as a letter carrier with the US Postal Service in Saratoga Springs.  He is a past president and member of the International Coleman Collector’s Club, is a member and serves on the Board of Directors of the Kiwanis Club of Glens Falls and is an active member with the United Methodist Church of Queensbury.  Steve currently serves the club as Sergeant at Arms, and has also served as Past Club President as well as other leadership roles in the Club and District 53.

The Distinguished Toastmaster distinction involves not only speeches (about 50) but altruistic servant leadership at the Club and District Level, and demonstration of teamwork and leadership skills. Both Steve and Terry are well known throughout our community for being generous with their time and energy to mentor and encourage all members to pursue their goals and strive for excellence. Hardworking and dedicated, they are also two of the nicest guys you will ever meet, which makes their tremendous success all the more special. We are so proud of them for being recognized with this incredible honor.
