New membership incentive for finishing strong!
Toastmasters are taught to run meetings on time, finish speeches on time and reach membership goals on time. In that spirit, Beat the Clock is a great motivator for finishing the year on schedule, on time and with record numbers! Make it your club’s goal to earn the Beat the Clock award and encourage every member to take part.
Clubs adding five or more new, dual or reinstated members with a join date between May 1 and June 30 receive a Beat the Clock ribbon to display on the club’s banner and at least $50 USD dollars in TI gift cards. Click here for additional details.
To learn valuable insights in attracting guests to your meetings, please register and attend this workshop on Thursday May 13 at 7pm.

Challenge: “Helping Hands” Initiative
District 60 is committed to strengthening its Clubs. A new incentive has been announced – “Helping Hands”. This incentive is intended for two clubs to form a partnership where a club that has found success in growing membership, creating an exciting club meeting atmosphere, and/or continually achieves the Distinguished Club Program award, will work with another club that seeks to grow membership, hold memorable meetings, and achieve Distinguished Status.
– Program will run from January 25, 2021 through June 30, 2021
– Both Clubs will receive District recognition and a $50.00 (US dollars) Toastmasters International gift card when the Club receiving support achieves Distinguished Club Program status
If your club is interested in participating, please email the Helping Hands Program Chair, Angela Ho.
New club incentives – charter & new member fees waived
Any new clubs that organize for the months of November to June of the 2020-2021 program year and pay future renewal dues, will have the charter fee ($125USD) and the new member fees ($20 USD per member) waived.

When Toastmasters Districts grow to a certain size, it becomes necessary to look at a reformation strategy that keeps the organization vibrant and its members successful. This process is akin to the realignment process that Districts go through every year with Divisions and Areas. Both District 60 and District 86 have grown substantially since the original reformation in 2008, and we are at the point again where we must look to the future.
