Come on a Journey
Time to Grow
Hello District 91, Debbie Williams here, your new Club Growth Director.
I want to invite you on a journey. How would you like to gain more club members for your clubs and the district? How can you make a difference?
We have ambitious goals to grow our membership base this Toastmaster year. We would love you to talk about your Toastmasters experience outside your club. Why not invite a friend or colleague to your club and let them enjoy the experience and pure fun of being a guest?
How about asking a member who has not attended the club for a while to come back? Lapsed members form a large untapped resource of potential new or reinstated members.
We will be welcoming new clubs joining our District and looking at increasing our mentor database so that these new clubs have the benefit of experience from an existing Toastmaster who will guide them to become strong sustainable clubs.
For clubs that need assistance there is the Club Coach program. The parameters for coaches have changed this Toastmaster year, putting the needs of clubs at the heart of the program. Training for potential coaches will take place later this month on 21st July. Please see the district calendar for further details. And check here for more details: https://www.toastmasters.org/magazine/magazine-issues/2022/july/club-coach-changes
The goal for the year is to have strong sustainable clubs in our District, both existing and new clubs. I look forward to supporting you all throughout the year ahead.
