Meeting started with the message of Perseverance.
A key aspect of success in any field is working toward goals, learning from failures and never giving up. 
If a goal is of paramount importance to us we have to learn to pursue it with vigor. 
So no matter the trials or obstacles stick to your goals.
Don’t give up. Persistence is one key aspect that will keep on the path toward the success you so deserve.(Joseph Guarino)

In UMTMC we work together toward our goals of learning public speaking and gaining leadership skills in under a good fellowmen ship.
We pursue our club goals, and stick with our core values - integrity, dedication to excellence, service to members and respect for the individual.
These values are worthy of great organisation and these are anchor points in every decision we make.
Electing new team means persistently we're working on the path to achieve success.
