Run a Membership Campaign!
Once you have improved the quality of your meetings, a great way to build up your membership is to actively take part in a few membership campaigns that Toastmasters focuses on through the year.
The Smedley Award is given to clubs who add 5 new or reinstated members during the months of August and September. Accomplish this goal and you’ll qualify to receive a "Smedley Award" ribbon, named in honor of Toastmasters International founder, Ralph Smedley, which you can display on your club’s banner. Qualifying clubs can also earn a special discount code for 10-percent off their next club order.
The Talk Up Toastmasters award is given to clubs that add 5 new or reinstated members during the months of February and March. Accomplish this goal and you’ll receive a special "Talk up Toastmasters" ribbon to display on your club’s banner. Qualifying clubs can also earn a special discount code for 10-percent off their next club order.
Beat the Clock awards are given to any club that adds 5 members between May and June. Clubs that accomplish this goal receive a "Beat the Clock" ribbon to display on the club’s banner. Qualifying clubs also earn a special discount code for 10-percent off their next club order.
Fewer Than 12 Members? Ask for a Club Coach
A club coach is someone who works with a club that has fewer than 12 members.
The coach’s role is to help the club add at least 5 net new members and attain Distinguished Status.
A coach’s assignment is complete when this occurs and the club has the processes and tools in place to carry on without any external assistance.
Two coaches may be assigned per club as appointed by the club growth director. Anyone who serves as a coach receives a pin, a certificate, and credit toward the Advanced Leader Silver award.
Visit Another Club in Your Area
Take a step outside your own club and visit some other clubs in your local area. This will expose you to new ideas and strategies that you can think about incorporating into your own club.
Building your club membership starts with a club commitment to be the best club you can be!
What Is the Distinguished Club Program?
The Distinguished Club Program (also known as the “DCP”) is a set of goals developed by Toastmasters International that helps clubs in achieving education, membership, and administrative objectives.
Toastmasters has found that Distinguished clubs tend to be successful, fun, strong clubs of which members enjoy being a part. Members of these clubs are completing manuals and levels and receiving recognition, and the clubs are continually growing and improving.
There are 10 goals in the DCP.
