It’s never too late to begin!
Your 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 might attract.
- Attend (extra point for helping out at) a club contest in another club, your Area and your Division. Note new ways to enhance your own club contests.
- Attend a special training event – our TLI’s count. Contact the organizers if you didn’t get your stamp. If you missed the TLI, look for Judge’s training, a Speechcraft event, or other special training opportunities in District 21. Can’t find one? Why doesn’t your club host one? Contact Program Quality Director to find out how.
Make your journey special. record your notes in your Passport and hand it in at the Spring Conference. We’ll send it back with a Special District 21 “Thank You” note after collecting great ideas and feedback to help make our clubs and District event better.
Submitting Your Passport
Whether you’ve completed one task or all of them, make sure your Passport is handed in at the Spring Conference in Abbotsford April 29 – May 1st. You can send your passport in with someone who is attending the conference. If you bring your passport to the conference in person, you’ll receive a special small gift from our team right there!
Besides the adventures and discoveries, your gift and your returned passport as a momento from your journey, there are prizes for the most points:
- 3rd Prize: a fun and functional Toastmasters Selfie-Stick
- 2nd Price: a stylish and comfortable Toastmasters Core Jacket
- 1st Prize: Full Registration to the District 21 Fall Conference on Vancouver Island!
Adventures, thank you’s, mementos and possible prizes … all great reasons to participate in this year’s District 21 Passport Program. The best reason of all, is connecting with old friends and making new ones in our wonderful District. We have amazing teams and brilliant, dynamic members in every corner of District 21. The opportunity to get to know them is waiting for you.
