District 86 Club Growth
Hello, District 86! It is a great honour to serve as your Club Growth Director for 2019-2020. I look forward to an exciting year, as we fulfill the mission of the District. The mission is to build new clubs and support all clubs in achieving excellence. The areas of concentration are:
- to build new quality clubs;
- to retain existing clubs through effective & quality support of the members;
- to update the training package for Sponsors, Mentors and Coaches and
- to create a stronger Toastmasters’ presence within the communities that we serve.
As the Club Growth Director, I am responsible for all aspects of marketing, club building and club retention efforts within the District. This includes:
- defining an overall marketing strategy for the District;
- developing outreach and retention efforts with existing community and corporate clubs;
- penetrating new markets; and
- supporting challenged clubs and helping them to become Distinguished.
This is a huge task and requires a team of skilled and dedicated people working together. If you are interested in helping the members and the district while mastering new skills please reach to me at email@example.com.
Club Growth Committee 2019-2020
Lisa Des Vignes - Club Extension (Sponsor) Chair
The club extension chair oversees the objectives for the club extension and club sponsor committees. These two committees are essential in assisting the club growth director through maintaining quality leads and providing guidance over the club sponsor program to ensure that prospective clubs are chartered successfully. In addition to providing sponsors for prospective clubs, the club sponsor committee arranges club sponsor credit opportunities for members who seek it.
Brahm Memone, DTM- Club Quality (Mentor) Chair
Members joined Toastmasters to become more effective communicators and leaders. They stay in Toastmasters because the club provides a valuable service and meets their individual needs. The club quality chair focuses on establishing a club mentor committee to provide this service through the club mentor program. Club mentors are the advisors and tutors for new clubs and have a great effect on the degree to which a new club succeeds. In addition to providing mentors to the club, the committee arranges club mentor credit opportunities for members who seek it.
Shawn Salokannel, DTM - Club Retention (Coach) Chair
The club retention chair heads the club coach committee which assists with the club coach program. The committee helps club coaches develop action plans to aid their assigned clubs. In addition to providing coaches for qualified clubs, the club coach committee arranges club coach credit opportunities for members who seek it. The club retention chair also assists with promoting membership building programs designed by Toastmasters International (Smedley Award, Talk Up Toastmasters and Beat the Clock), and additional programs designed by the district.
