Keep getting those renewals in! Welcome those potential guests to attend your next meeting and ask them if this program could help them succeed!

See details of the Contest below:

You LOVE your club. Your members are your trusted friends. You learn, laugh, and sometimes cry together. There is nothing quite like a fellow trusted Toastmaster.

Each year lives change. People move. Their focus shifts. Family needs them in different ways. Life happens. Twice a year, some of your members might make that tough decision to stop learning in your club and focus on other areas of responsibility. While you never joined Toastmasters to promote Toastmasters, if you want your club to continue being that vibrant gathering each week, you need to find more potential fellow learners.

To help you and your team members focus on the FUN factor of reaching out to future friends, we’ve issued a CHALLENGE with prizes that ALL our clubs could potentially win!

Create that Rising Tide that floats all boats.

Grow your club by 10% above your July 1st base as of the April 1st renewals (which we’ll see around April 8th) and your club WILL WIN:

  1. All your members’ names on the VIP Guest List of the Kelowna Spring Conference’s Saturday Night “AfterParty” event (it will be an event to remember!)
  2. A special Party Pack for your team to help you celebrate at the AfterParty event
  3. A Club Care Package to take back home with you. This Care Package will contain a collection of helpful resources and items to help you care for all those brand new members and sustain the growth you’ve achieved, keeping your club that fun, supportive and exciting learning opportunity you LOVE going to each week.

How do you find your July 1st base?

  1. Click on this link to view the District 21 Dashboard: http://dashboards.toastmasters.org/Club.aspx?id=21
  2. Scroll down to your Division and Area to find your club. You’ll see all of your DCP points, as well as your July 1st 2017 and your current membership.
  3. You can click on your club’s name to pull up a “one page” that focuses completely on your team. This is great for printing or displaying on a screen at meetings

How do you grow your team?

  • We have a host of resources to offer. Browse this website, our YouTube Channel and the resources at Toastmaster International (and try not to get stuck in overwhelm). Just seize one or two ideas that connect with you and take action! Whatever you do will help create awareness and grow everyone who helps you. It’s never a waste to try different ways to promote your club opportunity to your community you serve.
  • Reach out to your Area Director. He/she is committed to helping your club succeed and is dying for you to ask!
  • Reach out to your Division Director to find out what District resources and events might help you.
  • Conspire with your team through Moments of Truth. Decide how you want your club to function, what areas you could work together to improve and how you want to be perceived by your ideal future members
  • Use your Passport! Visit other clubs and discover ideas you want to try out in your own club. Jot down your “Ah-Ha’s” and get your passport “stickered” or initialed! We’re offering a small appreciation gift for the chance to collect helpful data from your passport at the Spring Conference AND there’s 1st 2nd and 3rd prizes for the most points!
  • Invite a member to chair a memberhip campaign
  • Invite several members to chair PR campaigns with specific focuses.
  • Ask a successful club in our District what they did to grow their membership. Great ideas are everywhere! Toastmasters love to share and help their fellow clubs succeed.

Looking forward to seeing YOU and your team in Kelowna and, if you can’t make Kelowna, hearing how your team chooses to celebrate your success, as well as use that Club Care Package!

A New Club Could Mean a Swanky Hooded T-Shirt for You

Imagine that very first club you discovered and joined, that place where you gained encouragement, helpful feedback and mentoring through your early speeches, never existed. What would your life be like today? Look how far you’ve come from that first day you walked through the door and experienced your first meeting.

We are searching for new club ideas and opportunities to share the transformation Toastmasters provides to more people in more corners of our District. Do you have a brilliant idea for a new club? Maybe it’s a

  • community club where there’s an ideal space or central location;
  • advanced club that can help members in your Area or Division accelerate their personal or professional growth;
  • specialty club that could serve a niche market or help members achieve a specific goal; or
  • corporate club in a company with 250+ employees

Send your club idea RIGHT AWAY to our Club Extension Chair, Gene Vickers. If your club is fully chartered before end of day June 14th, and you will become the proud owner of one of these swanky Toastmasters branded Hooded Long Sleeve T-Shirt (They are sweeeeet!)

BONUS: Your two Club Sonsors will each receive a new Pathway along with their hard-to-get credit toward their DTM at Toastmasters International.

So … what’s your size?

See all you need to know to charter a club HERE.

Warmly and with great anticipation,

Your 2017 – 2018 District 21 Director

What is this D21 Club Treasure Hunt Adventure?

By now your club has hopefully had some little care package arrive through your Area Director with a Treasure Chest, a Map, and a letter about both the Passport Program and the Treasure Hunt Adventure. You might have even received a few little cards with “bling” attached.

This program is designed by Club Retention Chair, Jeff Galenzoski, to help your members, both new and not-so-new, have a year of exceptional personal growth, and a lot of fun along the way. Celebrating each member’s contribution to the success of the team is one way to spark more enthusiasm for doing all those little things that make a big difference to your member experience.

Here’s how it works:

  1. The Map  – is your guide to where the “treasure” is. Explore the map! Go through it as a team. Display it at your meetings. Beside “Our Ship Be Named” write your club name and Tag Line. As you receive treasure, mark up the map with who brought in what! By June, this map should be marked up, starred, scribbled on with notes of encouragement, random art, and lots and lots of names!
  2. The Treasure Chest – is where you place the “bling” part of the rewards your team receives each month from the District. Have fun celebrating the bling! You could do Table Topics speeches by your contributors each month as they deposit their treasure in the team chest. DECORATE your team’s chest in unique ways! Make it a reflection of what your club is all about and the people you serve. At some point, we’ll be asking for Treasure Chest photos … more to come!
  3. The Treasure Most is automatically rewarded by our District team as we watch the amazing things you continue to do – education awards, new members, new member sponsors, DTM’s, District Training events and Above and Beyond Service “bling” will be delivered to your club after the close of each month. There are a few exceptions we need help with:
    1. Someone on your team chairs a Membership Building Campaign – please forward their name and a blurb about the campaign (any materials the team produced, a link to the facebook or webpage, a flyer, a handout your members were working from) ASAP to Club Retention Chair and Mastermind of this project, Jeff Galenzoski.
    2. Your team launches a PR Campaign – please forward a summary of the PR Campaign and any supporting evidence (social media, newspaper, flyer, etc) to District Director, Carol Carter
  4. Have fun with this! Share the adventure! We’re looking for stories, facebook posts and other feedback on how you are using the Treasure Hunt Adventure to help your entire team succeed this year. A rising tide floats all boats. We’d also love to see a little friendly club rivalry going on (get creative!).

More questions? Contact Jeff or myself any time through the “Connect With Us” page.

Wishing you and your team Grand Adventures and much fun ahead!

 

 

Your 2017 – 2018 District Director, Carol Carter

 

The District 21 Passport Program – Make this year a Grand Adventure!

Membership has its priviledges! As a member of Toastmasters, you are part of a large family of clubs around the world. Other than “closed” clubs (special organizations with requirements to belong) you are welcome to attend ANY of them. Have you explored your own backyard? How much of District 21 have you visited? How many new friends, valuable connections and brilliant ideas for your own club, are still waiting for you to discover?

Your District 21 Passport has a set of adventures waiting for you:

  • Visit clubs and jot down ideas you’d like to try in your own club
  • Visit Specialty and Advanced Clubs. Think of what type of member they could attract.
  • Attend (extra point for helping out) a club contest in another club, your Area or your Division. Note new ways to enhance your own club contests.
  • Attend a Toastmasters event – Workshop, Club Officer Training, Judge’s Training, Train-the-Trainer, Speaker-to-Trainer, and more. Would your club like to host a training event? Contact Program Quality Director Shawn Gold to find out how.
  • Participate in a Speechcraft or a Youth Leadership Project
  • Participate in a Demo Meeting for a potential new club
  • Attend a District 21 Conference

The more Passport Pages you complete, the more points your passport is worth! Whether you’ve completed one adventure or all of them, make sure your Passport is handed in by you or someone else at the Spring Conference in Kelowna April 20 – 22. Pick up a SPECIAL GIFT if you deliver your passport in person at the Conference!

Prizes!

Besides the adventures and ah-ha’s, your SPECIAL GIFT, and all your new connections, there are prizes for the most points! Winners will be announced in our June 2018 e-Newsletter.

Your Passport should have been given to your club by your Area Director. If your club needs more Passports, please contact Carol Carter, your District Director.

Carry your Passport with you at all times! Share ideas you’ve jotted in its pages. Collect proof of your “travels” and make this year a Grand Adventure for you and all you meet along the way!

BEE LUCKY!

BEE LUCKY!

Last month’s contest:

In August, we wanted to discover the longest personal name (yours) registered at Toastmasters International….that is, the D21 member with the most letters.
AND the winner is…Drum roll please!

We have not one but TWO winners of our August contest. Congratulations to Nikesh Ravind Banyandhub (thanks to Wendy Chernoff for submitting the name) and Samantha Sophia Pattridge! Both winners have 23 letters in their name (as registered at Toastmasters) and they will be receiving a $10 Starbucks card by snail mail.

Now for our September contest. Using only the letters found in the words Toastmasters International what is the longest word you can make? Obviously you can see words like ‘toast’ and ‘national’ and ‘master’. But jumble the letters up a bit and you have ‘state’ and ‘name’ and many more possible words. We’re looking for the longest word (and, no, you can’t use either ‘Toastmasters’ or ‘International’). You can enter more than once. Send entries to letters@d21toastmasters.ca. The deadline for entries is October 1st 2016.

The winner will be announced in the October newsletter and will win a $10 Starbucks card.
