Come Back to Toastmasters
Every member is encouraged to take part in the 2020 Beat the Clock membership building program for your club.
(All clubs adding five new, dual or reinstated members with a join date between May 1 and June 30 receive a Beat the Clock ribbon to display on your club’s banner. Qualifying clubs also earn a special discount code for 10% off their next club order.)
In addition, District 33 has created a promotion to supplement the final 2019- 2020 membership campaign.
Every club that participates in the Come Back To Toastmasters promotion will be placed in a drawing, by Division, to win “$50” in Toastmasters Gift Certificates. The Club will receive an entry for each member that returns and rejoins by June 30, 2020. Example: if you have 4 members that rejoin, then your club will receive 4 entries into the drawing for your Division.
- Each club will receive a list of non-renewing members (Oct & April) for their club from their Division Director.
- The club is asked to send an email to each of the non-renewing members to invite them to come back to Toastmasters and rejoin.
- Make a list of each member that rejoins. (Their name will be verified against the non-renewing members’ list.) To get your club entries into the drawing by July 15, 2020, a club officer is asked to send an email, listing each member that rejoins or renews, to Flora Turner, DTM – firstname.lastname@example.org
- Winning clubs will be posted on the District 33 Website and on the D33 Toastmasters Facebook.
The Gift Certificates will be mailed to your Club President no later than July 30, 2020.
Suggested Email to past members:
“Do you remember Why you joined Toastmasters? Was it to become a better speaker? Was it to improve leadership skills? Was it to network with others? We are writing to ask you to “Come Back To Toastmasters.” Your contribution to our club meeting was very valuable.
“Toastmasters has a new educational program, “The Pathways” learning experience. In this robust program, the learning modules are specific to what each member would like to learn.
“We now hold virtual meetings via Zoom and invite you to attend. Let us know that you’re joining in the fun so that we can send you the link to log-in. We still meet every ____________ at _________ AM/PM. Looking forward to welcoming you back.”
Let’s strive to finish the 2019-2020 term as a Smedley Distinguished District.
