Club Success Plans
Quality clubs promote the best possible member experience resulting in member success and member retention. Quality clubs require teamwork, positive supportive environments, and a plan. As Club Officers, you create your Clubs Success Plan, review it regularly, make adjustments where necessary, and cheer your team and club members on.
The Distinguished Club Program and Club Success Plan (Item 1111) is an excellent tool to help you with your plan. Click here to download

High Performance Leadership (HPL)
Working on an HPL project hones your leadership skills in areas like developing a vision, goal-setting and working with a team. To complete an HPL you must select a team of at least three other members. Form a guidance committee and meet at least five times through the duration of the project. Deliver a speech to introduce your plan and vision, complete your project then share your experience at the end. There are many opportunities available to complete this DTM credit.

The Program Quality Director focuses on education goals, training, the district conference and speech contests. The district’s priority is to ensure all members are trained and pursuing their educational goals using the Pathways program. Our Toastmasters Learning Institute (TLI) events will continue to include vibrant speakers, stimulating workshops and training. Speech contest support needs more attention including identifying facilities to hold Area contests which is often a challenge. As an organizer of a district conference, I understand its value not only for the business meeting and speech contests and education workshops but also as a great social and networking opportunity members throughout the district. Most important is to provide quality club programming and promote the Distinguished Club Program.
