Reformation Protocol 7 : needs analyis
If the Board approves the request or directs a reformation, the district director appoints a reformation committee to conduct a detailed needs analysis that includes the following:
- Map of proposed boundaries demonstrating that the reformed districts will have no fewer than 100 clubs each
- Number of clubs, club strength, growth trends, growth potential, population, education, languages spoken, and geographic influences for both districts
- Reasons why the reformation is in the best interests of the members, the clubs, the districts, and Toastmasters International
- Implementation strategy
- Marketing plan projecting growth and identifying key market opportunities for both districts
- Succession plan identifying qualified future leaders in both districts
- Financial projections demonstrating the anticipated income and expense for both districts
The needs analysis is submitted to the Chief Executive Officer for review with the Executive Committee. The Executive Committee provides its recommendation to the Board.
