All clubs in good standing can earn this surprise incentive - Hello Sunshine.

Just for 1 month only- December 1st through 31st 2023.

Qualifying clubs will earn a “Hello Sunshine” incentive banner ribbon.

In December, someone from the District Leadership Team will submit an email via the Toastmasters International find-a-club contact club button to YOUR club.  To earn the incentive ribbon, the person receiving the inquiry email simple responds to that email within 3 business days.  THAT'S IT!

Why are we having this surprise short-term incentive?  Good question. 
D25 was accepted to participate in the TI's LinkedIn advertising campaign and will run from January through March 2024.  This campaign has generated a lot of interest in previous years. We expect the same from our District.

If your club contact information is out of date, any club officer can update this easily:

1.          Log into Toastmasters.org
2.          Go to Leadership Central
3.          Go to Club Central (If you are an officer in multiple clubs, choose the club you are trying to update)
4.          Choose Club Contact and Meeting information
5.          Fill in or update the appropriate boxes
6.          Push Submit at the bottom
7.          Done! Easy-peasy!


GO GRAB THAT RIBBON!

The 5-For-5 Evaluation Challenge is an opportunity to enhance your critical thinking and constructive feedback skills through evaluating five speeches across five distinct clubs. By actively participating in this challenge, you'll provide valuable evaluations that contribute to the growth and development of the speakers.

A D25 Service Pin and Participation Recognition will be awarded at the D25 Year End Celebration.  Proof that the written evaluation has been shared with the speaker is required.


It's important to note that these five evaluations can also be counted towards the Nemileta Networking Nine goals. To complete the challenge, you must submit proof of all five evaluations on both the 5-For-5 Evaluation Challenge form and the Nemileta Networking Nine form.

Submit agendas or screen shots from each meeting reflecting which role you held as well as brief description of your experiences and earn a district focus pin. (one award per member per year)

Toastmasters International Club Membership Building Contest

Beat the Clock Program Dates: May 1 – June 30

Toastmasters are taught to run meetings on time, finish speeches on time and reach membership goals on time. In that spirit, “Beat the Clock” is a great motivator for finishing the year on schedule—and with a bang. The goal for your club is to earn the “Beat the Clock” award! Make this a contest in your club to encourage every member to get involved. Clubs adding five new, dual or reinstated members during May and June receive a “Beat the Clock” ribbon to display on the club’s banner. In addition to the ribbon, qualifying clubs earn a special discount code for 10-percent off their next club order. (The discount code expires six months from the date of issue and is not valid with any other offer.)

Applications and payments for members who join between May 1 and June 30 must be received at World Headquarters or online no later than June 30. Each member’s join date as listed on the application must be for May or June. The addition of transfer and charter members does not count toward “Beat the Clock” credit. The winning clubs will be revealed online within a few weeks of the contest ending. Winning clubs should allow up to 10 business days to receive their award if they are located in the United States, and up to 21 business days if they are outside of the United States

Any club beginning the year with 12 or fewer members and building membership to charter strength (20) or greater will receive the District 25 Phoenix Award ribbon that can be proudly displayed on their club’s banner.

District Director 20+ Club Award

Strong clubs strive to maintaining their base membership at Charter Strength (20 members). Each club that ends the year with 20 or more members receive the 20+ Club Award.

(Year-end DCP reports from Toastmasters International used to determine clubs that met criteria for this District award.)

Note: The ribbon for club banner will be presented at the Awards Banquet..

Kaizen Club Award

Kaizen is the Japanese art of continuous improvement. It stresses the need to continually improve the way that things are done in order to achieve high levels of quality from year to year. At the club level, it is important to keep this in mind — if we’re not doing anything to improve our clubs, we remain stagnant and eventually begin to backtrack.

Each year, District 25 recognizes clubs that has been at least Distinguished for 3 years in a row. This is a major accomplishment for a club, and District 25 is proud to be able to recognize these clubs for their efforts both over the past year and in years prior. Clubs that are Presidents Distinguished 3 years in a row or longer receive the prestigious District Director’s Quality Award, which is the highest award a club can receive from the District.

District Director Quality Award

 

The District 25 Direcor’s Quality Award recognizes clubs that are President’s Distinguished over a continuous 3-year period.

This is the highest award a club can receive from the District. The clubs that are able to achieve and maintain this level of excellence prove year after year their commitment to their members and to the organization by signing up new members and getting them through the educational program. District 25 is proud to have these consistently high-achieving clubs in its District.

Triple Crown Incentive Any member earning 3 or more Education Awards will be awarded a triple crown pin.
