Incentive Awards, 2021-2022

District 71 – 50th Anniversary Year

How did we do?

It’s 50th Anniversary year for District 71 and our dream was to have all clubs in the District Distinguished by 30 June 2022.

The Covid legacy and our return to in-person meetings, the introduction of hybrid meetings and, for many, the continuation of online meetings has been a difficult challenge. Club members in District 71 have proven their resilience, professionalism and dedication by ensuring their club meetings were kept interesting, fun and educational.

100 of our 205 clubs achieved Distinguished Status or higher. Congratulations to all these clubs. Your achievement means that our District is Select Distinguished in the Distinguished Clubs category. Thank you!

Special recognition goes to all of the other clubs who retained their eligibility in challenging times. Thank you to each and every Toastmaster involved.

The Incentive Program is one way the District has of  thanking you for volunteering and keeping the passion you have for Toastmasters alive.

The Incentives earned by clubs for 2021/22 are now available. Make sure you know what your club has earned. Check below – Just type in your club name under “Club Search” .

Brenda Lannon

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 Club’s Success Plan by providing clubs with a better chance of achieving their goals under the Distinguished Club Program (DCP)

Elizabeth Jordan
Elizabeth Jordan, DTM, Club Growth Director

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. 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.

James Finnegan, Public Relations Manager

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.
