4th Dimension held its tenth anniversary meeting on Friday, 12 April, 2013.
The club was chartered by Regina Martins with help from Estie Smal and the rest of Alberton Toastmasters. Martins was working for a company that was subsequently acquired by Dimension Data, so she decided to start a Toastmasters club there.
After Regina, the club’s first president was Nerina Uys.
Erich Viedge joined the club in 2004, and became its third president. VPE of the club was Adriaan Botha at the time. Erich Viedge went on to be Division C Governor and then District Governor in 2011/12.
Louise Howell took over from Viedge and took the club to Select Distinguished status — 7 points. That same year, Adriaan Botha left the club and joined Standard Bank Ops where he helped David Preece rescue SBSA Ops club.
Standard Bank Ops went on to be the top club in District, two years in a row; David Preece himself went on to succeed Erich Viedge as District Governor in 2012/13.
