“Distinguished Club Website” programme


Website controlIs your club website working hard on your behalf?

Your club website is the primary way that “strangers” will find your club. It’s also a great place to ‘showcase’ the amazing benefits of your club.  

Do you have high-quality club website?

Is it attracting new members to your club?

This year we have a new challenge for clubs in D71: The “Distinguished Club WEBSITE” Programme — or “DCW” for short.

An initiative from 2017-18 District PR Manager Laura Bruce is the “Distinguished Club Website”. Sound familiar? Like the Distinguished Club Program, the DCW has a maximum of 10 points on offer.

The principle is that a website that meets these criteria will be helpful to potential guests and visitors.

A club’s website that meets all 11 criteria will be rewarded. [You want loot? We got loot!]

Here are the criteria for the Distinguished Club Website:

  1. Name of club and city or town the club meets in
  2. Time and date/schedule of meeting (e.g. “1st and 3rd Thursday”). Be specific if you meet every 2nd week – include dates of your meetings. 
  3. Meeting venue and directions to venue
  4. Description of what a first-time visitor might expect at a meeting
  5. Names of your club officers
  6. Photos from one of your meetings (Best speaker ribbon presentation? People chatting at your network break? New member induction ceremony?)
  7. Contact form to get in touch with the club by email AND phone number of someone at the club
  8. Information about what Toastmasters is and how it works
  9. Details about how your club is part of a larger district, within the worldwide organisation
  10. Toastmasters logo on each page – ideally as part of header
  11. Is it mobile friendly?
