Dues Renewal is Open
This is your friendly reminder that dues renewal is open. As we are already in September, it is very important to encourage all of your club members to renew their dues. Remember to get your payments submitted to Toastmasters International by October 1st. If you have any questions about retaining your members, please feel free to reach out to any of your District leaders for answers.
A club coach is an experienced Toastmaster who coaches a club to rebuild membership and restore quality to the club environment. The goal of a coach is to help the club achieve recognition in the Distinguished Club Program, which is accomplished by:
- Building rapport with club leaders and members
- Instilling enthusiasm, comradery, and structure within the club
- Assessing the club environment and recommending best practices for success
- Working with club leaders to develop a Club Success Plan
- Encouraging the club to strive for Distinguished Club Program recognition
You could personally help catapult Toastmasters into a new place by volunteering to become a Club Coach. District 58 is currently looking for experienced and brand new Club Coaches to help clubs. This year we are focusing on rebuilding our clubs and helping them have quality club meetings. Club Coaches can bring new ideas, motivation, and even some reprieve to club members and help a club return to greatness! Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out the Club Coach form online at https://forms.gle/1pfYpuW8L8GSGyVT8.
New Club Ideas
Do you have an idea for an amazing new club? We are currently looking for ideas to help us create new clubs within District 58. This year, our focus is to help build new clubs that are focused on a specific topic. These clubs are often referred to as “Specialty Clubs”. Reach out to CGD Mike Ward at email@example.com to discuss your idea.
Club Sponsors and Mentors
New clubs that have Club Sponsors and Club Mentors are typically more successful than clubs that try to start without this support. Club Sponsors and Club Mentors create the critical support system that they need to help new clubs get going. If you are interested in helping with starting or supporting new clubs this year, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out the Club Sponsor & Mentor form online at https://forms.gle/KzsSUSGd5cJY758H7.
Our Marketing Team is growing. If you are interested in sharing marketing ideas, helping with committees, helping with our District communications, or just be involved in being “in the know” please send an email to email@example.com and CGD Mike Ward will invite you to the next Marketing Team Meeting.
