Talk Up Toastmasters!

Program Dates: February 1 – March 31

Toastmasters love to talk, so take advantage of it. During the “Talk Up Toastmasters” membership contest, you can encourage your members to invite guests to a special meeting where regular procedures are augmented by a discussion of Toastmasters’ many benefits. Add five new, dual or reinstated members to your roster between February 1 and March 31 to receive a special “Talk up Toastmasters” ribbon to display on your club’s banner. In addition to the ribbon, qualifying clubs earn a special discount code for 10-percent off their next club order. (The discount code expires six months from the date of issue and is not valid with any other offer.)

Applications and payments for members who join between February 1 and March 31 must be received at World Headquarters or online no later than March 31. Each member’s join date as listed on the application must be for February or March. The addition of transfer and charter members does not count for credit toward “Talk Up Toastmasters” credit.

Remember the contest runs from February 1 to March 31. So don’t wait, start planning how your club will add 5 members and qualify for the Talk Up Toastmasters! Award. Challenge every member to get involved and have fun!

Begin Beat the Clock Membership Campaign

Program Dates:  May 1 and June 30
Toastmasters are taught to run meetings on time, finish speeches on time and reach membership goals on time. In that spirit, “Beat the Clock” is a great motivator for finishing the year on schedule—and with a bang.

The goal for your club is to earn the “Beat the Clock” award! Make this a contest in your club to encourage every member to get involved.

Clubs adding five new, dual or reinstated members between May 1 and June 30 receive a “Beat the Clock” ribbon to display on the club’s banner.  In addition to the ribbon, qualifying clubs earn a special discount code for 10-percent off their next club order.

Smedley Award

Program Dates: August 1 – September 30  

It all began in 1924. Ralph Smedley invited a small group to meet in the Santa Ana, California YMCA where he conducted the first meeting of what would eventually evolve into Toastmasters International. One person initiated a program that would go on to affect millions of people.

In honor of Ralph Smedley and the birth of the Toastmasters club, Toastmasters International holds the Smedley Award contest each year. To qualify, the individual club must add five new, dual or reinstated members between August 1st and September 30th. Those clubs receive a ribbon for their banner and a 10% discount off their next club order. This is a great opportunity to collaborate and encourage others to spread the word about Toastmasters and bring new members to your club.

Remember the contest runs from August 1 to September 30. So don’t wait, start planning how your club will add 5 members and qualify for the Smedley Award. Challenge every member to get involved and have fun!
