A successful club attracts members and keeps them engaged. All of us want our clubs to be successful.
How many members should a club have to be successful? After conducting a survey of members’ satisfaction and an analysis of the Distinguished Club Program, Toastmasters International has changed the minimum club membership level from 6 to 8, effective April 1, 2014. Therefore, for a club to continue in good standing after the April dues renewal, it must have at least 8 members.
You can visit Toastmasters International at the following link to see the official policy. It is located on page 139: http://www.toastmasters.org/policyprotocol
District 25 wants to educate and assist clubs in the transition to the 8-member minimum by presenting a special TLI workshop “Club Renewal Policy Change” on December 14 at Texas Wesleyan University. See how your club can prepare and what district resources are available to to help. http://www.d25toastmasters.org/tli/schedule.htm
