Moments of Truth (MoT):
Based on 90+ years of experience Toastmasters has a tool called Moments of Truth. This is a facilitated session to review in detail the club’s activities and to identify improvements and solutions. The six critical Toastmasters moments of truth are:
- First Impressions – focuses on welcoming guests
- Membership Orientation – helping a new member to get oriented in the club
- Fellowship, Variety and Communication – creating a warm, friendly and supportive environment
- Program Planning and Meeting Organization – planning meetings, well-prepared speakers and good evaluations

Club Success Plan (CSP):
The Club Success Plan includes all elements necessary to achieve your club’s goals: what, how, who and when. Determining in advance what should be done, when and how it will be accomplished and who is responsible for doing it, makes achieving success much easier.
Distinguished Club Program (DCP):
The Distinguished Club Program includes 10 goals that your club should strive to achieve each year. When your club incorporates Moments of Truth into every meeting, it is already well on its way to reaching these annual goals.
The 10 goals have been grouped into four areas:
Education: Members who have the opportunity to earn education awards are reaching their goals.
Membership: When new, dual, and reinstating members join, everyone’s experience is enhanced because your club has enough members to provide leadership and fill meeting and committee assignments.
Training: Trained club officers are better able to serve and support your club because they know how best to fulfill their roles.
Administration: Submission of the dues renewals and the club officer list on time, which will help your club run more smoothly, benefiting your members.
