District 71 – 50th Anniversary Year
How did we do in Q1 2021?
It’s 50th Anniversary year for District 71 and our dream is to have all clubs in the District Distinguished by 30 June 2022. Imagine how exciting that would be for all of us!
We invite all clubs in District 71 to help make this dream come true! For most clubs that means having 20 members and at least 5 Distinguished Club Program Goals.
How is your club doing and what do you need to achieve this. Check your Dashboard here! – Just type in your club name under “Club Search” . Want help? Just ask your Area Director. They will be happy to help you.
Results of the Incentive Awards Q1
We are delighted to announce the results of the incentive awards for Q1
Golden Quarter Award
The three clubs which added the highest number of new members in Q1, who also renewed in October, received the Golden Quarter Trophy.
This is an outstanding achievement award and our thanks and congratulations go to the following three clubs who had exceptional growth in new members in Q1.
· First place went to Godiva Toastmasters. 9 new members added*
· Second place went to Tuam Toastmasters. 9 new members added*
· Third place went to Lincolnshire Speakers. 8 new members added
*The tiebreaker was judged on the club which had the earliest member joining date.
Tuam Toastmasters renewed from a base of zero. Welcome back Tuam Toasmasters. We are delighted to see your club meeting again.
Renewing members bring experience and loyalty to a club, help sustain it and provide a pipeline of club committee members for next year’s term.
Congratulations to the 22 clubs which renewed at least 80% of their membership in September renewals.
A special shout out to the 5 clubs who renewed 100% of their members:-
- Analog D’Voices,
- Cashel Club,
- Castleknock Toastmasters Club,
- GSK Herts Speakers
- Phoenix-Tara Toastmasters.
7 of 7 Club Officers Trained
When Club Officers attend Club Officer Training (COT) they learn the objectives of their role, build up a network of peers across the District in the same role and acquire the skills to deliver a quality experience for their members and achieve Distinguished Status for their clubs. All club officers are encouraged to attend training which will be happening in January.
Aim to have all 7 trained to earn the round 2 COT incentive.
Congratulations to the 15 clubs who had all 7 of their club officers trained in round 1 and the 14 clubs with 12 members or less who had at least 4 club officers trained.
Special Recognition goes to Godiva Toastmasters
Very special recognition goes to Godiva Toastmasters who have added 17 new members to their club since 1 July 2021 and already have 7 goals registered on their Dashboard. Their President Nishanth C Mohan tells us how they achieved this:
“When we were sworn in as the new committee, the vision we signed up for was to “Become the best club in A42, Divison E in terms of DCP points, and reach President’s distinguished status in 6 months.
So we were grinding for the last 3 months with our PR – pulling in lots of Guests, Membership – ensuring we do 80% guest-to-member conversion and with Educationals- doing maximum speeches with additional speakathons, thereby getting max points.
We basically worked toward the vision with a well thought out plan. All credit goes to the committee”
Dream, Believe, Achieve….it really works and we encourage all clubs to think big in this very special year.
Have a look at the remaining incentives for 2021/22 and see how your club can earn some credit.
