Helping Hands


The Helping Hands program is for clubs whose membership is down (not necessarily to 12) and feel that it would be beneficial to have some extra hands and fresh ideas, evaluations, speeches, etc. to make the club meetings stronger.  The goal is to re-energize the existing members and help turn visitors into members.

The Helping Hands team will be made up of experienced Toastmasters members who are willing to attend a target club's meetings for a minimum of  3-4 consecutive meetings.  The team members may all be from the same club or may be from different clubs.  You cannot be considered a Helping Hand if you are already a  member of the club being helped when the program begins. 

If you feel your club would benefit from this program, please contact  Lt. Governor Marketing, Cindy Hinckley to send her an email. Every effort will be made to fill all requests.

Successful completion of requirement of this program will complete one of the leadership requirement for the D25 Elite/Star Award program.

Early Bird Award   


Remember that dues can be paid online on the TI website. Did you know that you need a

minimum of eight members to meet requirements? Clubs that wait to pay until they receive dues from every member risk the chance of missing the deadline and losing out on receiving DCP Credit.

Club officers use your single sign-on to pay your club’s dues online on the Toastmasters International website. Once onsite checkout the other activities you can do as well.


Also, don’t forget that clubs paying their dues ON TIME during both semi annual dues periods

will receive credit for the Five Star Club Award!


Clubs submitting dues by *
September 30 for October renewals
March 31 for April renewals
will receive
“Early Bird” ribbon for their club banner
At the Awards Luncheon on Saturday during the District 25 Conference

* A minimum of 8 renewals must be entered/submitted

by date shown to receive ribbon.

Score Big

Score BIG! and Win the Dues Renewal Game


Why are smart clubs already collecting their dues renewal payments?


Because they want to have all their members renewed by the September 30 deadline and they know that starting early is the key to success.


Now there's another reason: Our new Score BIG! promotion. Here's how your club can get the most points for your member renewal payments. All payments must be entered online at TI by September 30 to count.

All clubs with dues renewals of at least 65% of their base membership will receive a special Score BIG! ribbon.



65% of base membership renewed: 3 points. You've made a field goal, but why settle for that?


75% of base membership renewed: 6 points. Touchdown! This is a good score but there's room for improvement.


85% of base membership renewed: 7 points. Touchdown with the extra point! This is a winning score — a healthy number of members means a strong club that can win a championship.


Here's how your points can equal rewards:

3 points = Eligible clubs will be entered in a drawing for a $25 TI Store gift certificate. Two certificates will be awarded.

6 points = Eligible clubs will be entered in a drawing for a set of CC/CL manuals (4 of each) OR a $50 TI Store gift certificate. Two prizes will be awarded.

7 points = Eligible clubs will be entered in a drawing for their choice of one of the following: Full-Size Banner, Portable Lectern, Battery-Operated Timing Lights OR a $100 TI Store gift certificate. Two prizes will be awarded.


Of course, just as in the past, you will get the Early Bird ribbon by having at least six renewals entered online by September 30.
