MACE Springs was chartered on Dec. 7, 2011. It was chartered under Area 36, for which John Joseph was the Area Governor and under Division I, whose governor was Salu John, DTM. John Joseph and Salu John, DTM were the sponsors for the club. It was exclusively a club for women only.
MACE Springs has its roots with MA College of Engineering, India. Suja Ajith was at the helm as the Charter President. With the timely and quality help from Vinod Raman, DTM, MACE Springs continued its journey and was a distinguished club under the presidency of Suja for the year 2012-2013. When Salu John took over as the Club President, the club was having difficulty with membership as many of its charter members started to dwindle.
MACE opened its membership to all and started recruiting fresh blood. DTM Salu's exceptional leadership motivated members to bring out the best in them. The members grew professionally and personally during his tenure. Unfortunately, DTM Salu John had pressing work commitments and had to hand over the reins to then VP PR, Noor Mohammad.
The club executive committee was fully motivated. Thanks to the inspiration and guidance of DTM Salu, the club was progressing and making the news. Subha Varadarajan was the VP Education, left no stone unturned when it came to education. Great performance reports, fully filled in agendas was inspiring. Subha was VPE par excellence. Tall Tales contest organized by MACE during the club anniversary, witnessed the then District Governor, Vicky Ferrer, DTM's presence. MACE achieved 10 on 10 Distinguished Club Performance goals and the quality of the club had improved reasonably. The club was President's Distinguished.
Subha was the next President for the year 2013-2014 with the exceptional executive committee. The plan was in place for members to gear up for growth and development. Sreekant Sreedharan Nair was the VP Education, who was a passionate Toastmaster who pushed the boundaries to another level. The club had a district officer for the first time. Noor was the Public Relations Officer for District 20. MACE continued its progressively improving journey to be President's Distinguished Club for the second time in a row.
MACE elected Rajalakshmi Rajashekaran as its 4th President. Rajalakshmi who is fondly known as Raji is relatively new to Toastmasters, but with a seemly steep growth curve. With the right motivation and a steely will, Raji led the club to the President's Distinguished Club status with members participating in Area, Division and District championships.
Binoy Sebastian who was the VP Membership during Raji's term took the helm to be the Club President during the year 2016-17. He continued the tradition of having quality meetings and this time with his exuberant personality Binoy induced a lot of enthusiasm among members. The club steadily moved ahead to be a Distinguished Club, while retaining club quality.
The dynamic Toastmaster Tabassum took the reins to lead the club to its former glory of being a President's Distinguished Club with extraordinary exposure and buzz on social media. The executive committee did a tremendous job and members had quality club meetings as was reflective in them participating and winning at various contests at different levels.
Toastmaster Kapil Kumra was elected to be MACE Springs next Club President. With a great strategy, wit and relentless attitude, TM Kapil and the executive committee led the club to achieve the perfect 10 DCP goals with a month to spare. The club witnessed an aggressive growth and increase in quality unlike previous years and it continues its journey, serving its members to be better communicators and leaders.
