October is open house month
All clubs are encouraged to host an open house during the district-wide open house month from October 1 to 31.
Together, let’s create a ground-swell of social media marketing by ramping up your posts on Facebook, Meetup, LinkedIn and Twitter. Start posting your Open Houses soon and let’s create a tidal wave of awareness about Toastmasters and interest in visiting your open house.
And until November 4, District 60 will be supporting your efforts with an advertising campaign (image to the left) that’s already been seen by over 34,000 LinkedIn users!
Congratulations clubs that submitted Club Success Plans!
The Club Success Plan is one of the most important tools available to plan your club success. By completing a Club Success Plan, your club will track its Distinguished Club Program points to achieve the Distinguished Club Award.

September 30 may have come and gone, but it’s still worth completing one. Click here for the planning template.
District 60 Alignment for 2020-2021
Final version of District Alignment now available!
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.
