Distinguished Club Program
How It Works
The Distinguished Club Program is an annual program, running from July 1 through June 30. The program consists of 10 goals your club should strive to achieve using the Club Success Plan (in the back of Distinguished Club Program and Club Success Plan manual) as your guide. To help you keep track of your progress toward these goals throughout the year, your club’s president is sent quarterly progress reminders. (Updated reports are posted daily on the Toastmasters International website at www.toastmasters.org/distinguishedperformancereports). At year-end, the number of goals the club achieved is calculated. Based on this and the number of members it has, the club may be recognized as a Distinguished, Select Distinguished, or President’s Distinguished Club.
A qualifying requirement is a prerequisite or prior condition for participation in the program. If a qualifying requirement is not met, your club may not earn Distinguished recognition even if all of its goals are met. To be considered for recognition, your club must either have 20 members or a net growth of at least five new members as of June 30. Transfer and charter members do not count toward your club’s membership goals.
