Challenge: “Beat the Clock” Initiative
Program Dates: May 1 – June 30
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 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. Qualifying clubs also earn a special discount code for 10% off their next club order (the discount code expires six months from the date of issue and is not valid with any other offer.)
In addition, clubs will receive from District 60, Toastmasters International gift cards (US dollars) for the following membership achievements:
- $50 – 5 new, dual or reinstated members
- $75 – 10 new, dual or reinstated members
- $100 – 15 new, dual or reinstated members
Please notify firstname.lastname@example.org by June 30th once you qualify for this incentive.
Applications and payments for members with a join date between May 1 and June 30 must be received at World Headquarters or online no later than June 30. The addition of transfer and charter members does not count toward Beat the Clock credit.
The winning clubs will be revealed online within a few weeks of the submission deadline. Winning clubs should allow up to 21 business days to receive their award.
