Toastronix President's Distinguished

With all of your amazing efforts, Toastronix ended the Toastmasters year as a President's Distinguished Club! To do this our club must complete 9 of the 10 distinguished club program goals.

Six of the goals are educational award goals, one deals with officer training, two are membership growth, and the lat is dues renewal on time combined with officer lists getting submitted on time!

We expect a member of Politically Incorrectly to be a representitve for our Club, Area, and Division!! So STEP UP and compete!

This year we have the new pricing model in effect, where one club payment covers everyone! Being an advanced club we have yet to determine how we are going to work this out as most of us are covered by another club! SO, that being said, please let the club officers know if you are not covered by another club and need to be so we can figure this out!

Remember meals are not covered at conference, nor is lodging! But we will get District 50 costing on these items! Watch this space for mor einfo as it becomes available!

Compentent Leadership Project 9 - Mentoring

So we all know what a pain in the arse Project 9 on the Compentent Leadership manual can be! However, a wise fellow Toastmaster told me a trick to Project 9...

Read it closely...Mentor a new or existing member through their first three projects. Well... we all just assume (at least I did) that this mean the first three project in the compentent Communicator Manual. But guess what! The Compentent Leadership Manual has "projects" as well!

Sure a Project in the CL manual has more steps in it than the CC manual... but new members are much easier to get them to do roles, than some of the teeth pulling that happens when trying to councel them for three speeches.

Not only that it does just say three projects... You can mix and match... just like in the thrift shop! Get them to do 5 roles and an Icebreaker! Three Projects done!

There’s an APP for that!

Have you tried it?! The first official Toastmasters mobile app is now available on your smartphone or tablet. This user-friendly tool is designed to help you perform your club meeting roles with convenience and ease. Preview and download the app here.

Make sure your Toastmasters International Login Access is activated to get full access to the Mobil App.

-Instant access to your club roster -Built-in Ah-Counter that counts filler words -Grammarian function that keeps track of the Word of the Day -An easy-to-use timer -A History section to track your progress. Download it today to help with your next role.

Practice Makes Perfect

To help you, we offer video recording of your speech to help you reach your goals as a fluent speaker. As any sports coach would tell you, with practice and rehearsal, you can get better. But with video you can see your opportunities to improve to be GREAT! Seeing yourself from the audience point-of-view will give you insight to improve posture, use of the stage, and any nervous habit you never knew you had. Just ask the VP of PR at the beginning of the meeting.
