Quality

Your Club Can Qualify for Quality!

 

YES! Every District 25 club that meets its membership qualifier for the
Distinguished Club Program by May 15, 2016, will receive a $25
Toastmasters International gift certificate.


 


EVERY club.

Whoa!  I like it!

But what is the “membership qualifier?”

   
$25

Nice!

      

It's the number of members that your cub must have on the roster by
June 30, 2016, in order to attain Distinguished status. 
Being a Distinguished club shows that you are a Quality club!

This number is either 20 members
OR
a net growth of at least 5 new members from the base number
of members that you had at the start of the Toastmasters year.
(Look at your club's DCP report to be sure.)

 

 

        

Great!  I love it!

But wait! (Yes, there IS more!)

Every club that Qualifies for Quality will be entered in a drawing to win automatic timing lights (a $269 value).

The winner of the drawing will be announced at the Awards Luncheon at the Spring Conference on May 21st.

Wonderful! I can’t wait!

Coy Studer at Bethesda Toastmasters - using new timing device!!

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.

 

Here's another reason: Our Score BIG! promotion is back! 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 70% of their base membership will receive a special Score BIG! ribbon.

 

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-M2YWoXm1rHU/Ugq0ZiBZQ7I/AAAAAAAACrk/RRjOsYZ0xG0/s200/score_goal.gif

70% of base membership renewed: 3 points. You've made a field goal, but why settle for that?

 

80% of base membership renewed: 6 points. Touchdown! This is a good score but there's room for improvement.

 

90% 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 $50 TI Store gift certificate. Three prizes will be awarded.

6 points = Eligible clubs will be entered in a drawing for a $75 TI Store gift certificate. Threeprizes will be awarded.
