Pathways adoption figures for Q1 2022-23

We are now quarter of the way into the Toastmasters Year, a good time to reflect on the progress being made by your members and clubs in reaching their goals. 

As Program Quality Director, I have also been reviewing the Q1 data. The Pathways Adoption figures show that many club officers have yet to adopt Pathways. In fact, 30% of club officers fall below the full 100% adoption rate for the committee.

As leaders of the club, your adoption of the Pathways Education Program is not only a great way to encourage club members to do the same, help your club to achieve its DCP goals, it is also a way to achieve your own communication and leadership goals. 

The Pathways Community of Practice (PCoP) team is happy to support you with any issues you have, and to help you to work towards achieving 100% adoption rates. Click here to contact us: PCoP email address.

Look out for an invitation to a Pathways Open House Meeting on Wednesday 26th October. Come and bring your questions, ideas and problems to the meeting. 

We are here to help!

Many clubs experience a loss in membership at September renewals as existing members leave the club for lots of different reasons. This incentive rewards clubs which renew 80% or more of their membership base at 30th June 2021. Having a good base of experienced members is important to offer mentoring to new members and stability to the club. 

It’s a good idea to follow up with members who do not renew to help club officers to understand the reason for not renewing and to extend an invite to rejoin at a future stage. They may be happy to stay on the club’s email list with this in mind.

Good PR attracts new guests, invites discussion and improves the reputation of the Club and Toastmasters generally.

Many clubs experience a loss in membership at September renewals as existing members leave the club for lots of different reasons. Recruiting in the early months helps to maintain the membership based upon the number of members at 30 June.

Maintaining a healthy membership number (25+) gives the club a much better opportunity to hold quality meetings with enough members to avoid double roles. Quality club meetings attract new members. Healthy club growth is an important part of Club Success.
