Woking Speakers Club is part of the worldwide Toastmasters International organisation which is focused on helping people to improve their communication and leadership skills.
Our goals are to give our members opportunities to do this and our allegiance is always towards helping our members first. Toastmasters International does, however, encourage it’s member clubs to aim to meet certain goals each year. Aiming to hit and achieving the goals will lead to a healthy club.
Happily, healthy clubs (such as Woking Speakers) generally have no problem hitting the goals and achieving the awards. This is a win, win situation.
Each year, Woking aims to meet the following Distinguished Club Program goals:
|1||2 people completing their CC||Completed|
|2||2 more people completing their CC||1 achieved|
|3||1 person completing either ACB, ACS or ACG|
|4||1 more person completing either ACB, ACS or ACG|
|5||1 person completing CL, AL or DTM award|
|6||1 more person completing CL, AL or DTM award|
|7||4 new members|
|8||4 more new members|
|9||Minimum of 4 club officers trained at officer training twice during the TM year|
|10||Dues in on time in March and September + the Club Officer list received by TM International prior to 30th June in the previous year||Club Officer List submitted on time|
5 goals = Distinguished Club
7 goals = Select Distinguished Club
9 goals = President's Distinguished Club
*please note that the Toastmaster year runs 1st July - 30th June.
