District 86 Program Quality

jacklyn payneProgram Quality Director District 86 - Jacklyn Payne, DTM

Serving District 86 in the capacity of Program Quality Director is an opportunity to help members achieve their personal best through quality service. My goal is to ensure that every member understands the purpose and process of the Education Program in order to reap the full benefit.

It is also important that we understand our growth and development are as a result of effective training of our leaders, the filtering of information to our members and that members participate in all aspects of the toastmasters curriculum.

As the Program Quality Director, I am responsible for all aspects of education and training within the district. This includes supporting quality club programming efforts, promoting the Distinguished Club Program and planning, organizing and executing the District Conference. I am also responsible for promoting and supporting club quality and member retention.

My Team and I will ensure that all 10 Divisions within District 86 receive quality service, readily available and easily accessible information to help members and their clubs succeed. When our members succeed the Club, Area, Division and District succeed.

Mentoring New Toastmasters - A How To Guide

Pages from Mentoring New MembersA great resource for every club. Mentoring and Coaching “is to support and encourage people to manage their own learning in order that they may maximize their potential, develop their skills, improve their performance and become the person they want to be.” Eric Parsloe, The Oxford School of Coaching & Mentoring.

Mentoring can be a very positive experience for the Mentee, the Mentor, and the Toastmasters Club. When effectively implemented new members gain the support they need to understand the culture of the Toastmasters Club they have just joined and to set realistic, achievable goals aligned with the reasons/ purpose they had when joining the club and ultimately to reach these goals.

When a Mentoring Program is implemented in an effective manner, new members are likely to feel welcome, be more engaged in the club, become active earlier and stay with the club for longer periods of time. This in turn contributes to a healthier club with more engaged members and lower turnover. Click on the image to view and download.

Speech Contest Eligibility Checker

Club and district officers can use the Eligibility Checker to determine if members are in good standing---and belong to a club in good standing---and thus eligible to compete in a speech contest or be a proxy. Please note, club officers can only check the eligibility of members within their own club and cannot use this tool to determine the eligibility of other members. The same type of restriction applies to district leaders: Area directors can only check the eligibility of members within their area; division directors can only check the eligibility of members within their division; and district directors can only check the eligibility of members within their district.

International Speech and Evaluation Contest

The International Speech Contest is the most important of all Toastmasters Contests.  The speech is to be an original speech of 5-7 minutes.  It can be serious, funny, and inspirational. The International Speech Contest is held at the Club, Area, Division, District, and International level.  The International Speech Contest is the only one that goes all the way to the International competition level - and where the World Champion of Public Speaking is decided!

The Evaluation Contest is 2-3 minutes in length. A test speaker gives a speech which all the evaluation contest contestants listen to and then evaluate. The contestants are taken from the room and give 5 minutes to prepare their evaluations (using form #1177). They are called back to the room one by one according to the predetermined speaking order and deliver their evaluations. The Evaluation contest is held a t club, area , division and district level.

A minimum of four club officers trained during each of the two training periods 

Your club achieves Goal 9 when at least four of its club officers—president, vice president education, vice president membership, vice president public relations, secretary, treasurer and sergeant at arms—are trained in their responsibilities. 

Officers must attend and fully participate in two district-sponsored training sessions. Credit is not given for non-officers attending in place of elected officers, and credit is given only for one person per office. Officers must be trained for the position to which they were elected.
