Conference

Attending a Toastmasters conference, whether it is a District conference or an International conference is an opportunity to experience the best of what Toastmasters offer. There is an opportunity to network, to strengthen your knowledge and, above all enjoy fun, fellowship and being part of the Toastmaster family.

The District 71 “Fulfil Your Promise” conference was held online on 21-23 May 2021 and the International Convention will be held online on 23-28 August.  The toastmasters.org website has more information about the 2021 Convention, and you can also access a range of sessions from the 2020 Convention.

It is important for all committee members in a club to understand what it is the other members are trying to achieve, why they are doing it and how they can support each other.

This incentive supports the District’s success plan by providing clubs with a better chance of achieving their goals under the Distinguished Club Program (DCP).

Elizabeth Jordan, Club Growth Director

Every organisation needs growth to survive. In any one year some clubs will not renew and many more will start up. Toastmasters works! Let’s give everyone the opportunity to have a club within walking distance from their home and Organisations the opportunity to have a Toastmasters Club in their workplace.

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

Elizabeth Jordan, Club Growth Director

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.
