District 86 Program Quality (Corporate)

Headshot of Myrna Barthe, DTM, Program Quality Director, CorporateMyrna Barthe, 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 13 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.
