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.
