Omega Line Toastmasters Club is a brain­child of Omega Line Group Direc­tor Felix Fer­nando, who is also the Char­ter Pres­i­dent of the club. This Toastmasters Club, which was char­tered on Au­gust 2, 2009, with 23 mem­bers, has come a long way in Toast­mas­ter­ing with many achieve­ments to its credit dur­ing these eight years. It cur­rently holds a mem­ber­ship of 59.

The mem­bers of Omega Line Toastmasters have rep­re­sented the club at Area, Di­vi­sion and District lev­els on many oc­ca­sions at con­tests with out­stand­ing per­for­mances. In 2010, TM Chethiya Subas­inghe be­came the first run­ner-up at the Di­vi­sion’s Hu­mor­ous Speech Con­test. TM Jiveeka Maduras­inghe was the sec­ond run­ner-up at Eval­u­a­tions Con­test in 2012 in the Di­vi­sion. In 2013, TM Dil­shan He­wawasam was the win­ner of the Di­vi­sion’s Hu­mor­ous Speech Con­test. In 2014, he be­came the first run­ner-up at the Di­vi­sion’s Hu­mor­ous Speech Con­test.

In 2016, TM Clar­isha Peirispulle be­came the sec­ond run­ner-up at the Di­vi­sion’s In­ter­na­tional Speech Con­test and TM Chamikara Per­era be­came the sec­ond run­ner-up at the Ta­ble Top­ics Con­test.

The club has pro­duced four Area Di­rec­tors, DTM Chethiya Subas­inghe, TM Sa­man Jayasinghe, TM Su­dath Fer­nando and TM Kapila Mi­traratne, who is the cur­rent Area Direc­tor of Di­vi­sion H 2. The im­me­di­ate past Di­vi­sion Direc­tor too is from Omega Line TMC.

Omega Line Toastmasters achieved the Pres­i­dents Dis­tin­guished Club sta­tus in sev­eral years from the year of char­ter and it is a club that has a va­ri­ety of events through­out the year that keeps the mem­bers en­gaged and en­joy­ing while learn­ing, which is also fun filled.

This year’s in­stal­la­tion was a mem­o­rable cer­e­mony which ended with a sump­tu­ous din­ner and live mu­sic where the mem­bers danced and en­joyed till late into the night.
