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
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.

District 60 alignment for 2021-2022
District 60, District 123 Alignment Process has begun
2nd Draft is available for our members input. 3rd Draft will be available in early April in time for the Council meetings
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.
