Brenda Lannon, Program Quality Director

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

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.

James Finnegan

James Finnegan, Public Relations Manager

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

Elizabeth Jordan

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.
