20 To 20 Membership renewals challenge

Membership renewals season is starting earlier than usual this year and we are inviting you to take part in it as early as you can. In order to create a bit of competitive spirit, District 91 has created the 20 to 20 challenge for membership renewals.

The first 20 clubs to renew a minimum of 20 members by March 15th will be able to claim back £50 from District 91 coffers to organise a pizza party celebration for their members and guests. Just imagine your usual vibrant club meetings with high calibre speakers, analytical evaluators, fun table topics and FREE pizza and refreshments on the top. Amazing eh?

Getting the Word Out! By Pauline Masters, Gloucester Speakers

The inauguration of a new Toastmasters Club requires commitment, leadership and public relations to help it become a successful club. Gloucester Speakers launched 14th October 2014 and chartered 1st March 2015. Public relations made a significant impact, letting people know about the club existence and accepting new members, all to facilitate development of their public speaking skills.

To spread the word, traditional PR was employed such as press releases, posters, business and networking. Then as now, we make full use of social media, Facebook and Twitter. We found that Meetup has helped move us forward.

Local radio love to have notice of local events and are supportive in developing awareness of how Toastmasters helps with public speaking. Our PR coup, air time on BBC local radio. Read More
