District 25 Awards
(awarded at the Awards Banquet)
District 25 Director Quality Award
The District 25 Director’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. Clubs that are able to achieve and maintain this level of excellence year after year prove their commitment to their members and to the organization by signing up new members and nurturing them through the educational program. District 25 is proud to have these consistently high-achieving clubs in its District.
Kaizen Club Award
Kaizen is the Japanese art of continuous improvement. This concept stresses the need for continual improvement in order to
achieve high levels of quality. At the club level, it is important to keep this in mind: If we are not doing anything to improve our clubs, we remain stagnant and eventually begin to backtrack. Each year, District 25 recognizes clubs that have 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 previous years.
Strong clubs strive to maintain their base membership at Charter Strength (20 members). Each club that ends the year with 20
or more members receives the 20+ club award. Year-end Toastmasters International DCP reports used to determine eligibility.
Five Star Club Award
In order to receive the Five Star Club award, a club must submit semi-annual renewals on time during September and March,
