Do you want to grow your personal network while expanding your horizons? Try District 27’s Club Envoy program.
The Club Envoy program encourages members to experience Toastmasters outside your club, by visiting new and emerging clubs. By “clubbing” you boost your understanding of how other clubs operate, while giving a lift to clubs that have fewer than 20 members.
Club Envoys who meet the qualifications will be recognized at the District 27 Conference or Hail and Farewell program. In a similar vein, the Club Envoy who visits the most clubs before the end of the year, June 30, 2018, will be recognized as the “Club Envoy of the Year” at the next District 27 Hall of Fame Ceremony.
“The Club Envoy program is a great way to meet and interact with Toastmasters outside your Club. You will not only inspire others, but will be inspired as well,” said District 27 Club Growth Director Robin Hylton. “Participating in the meetings of other Toastmasters clubs provides you with a different audience and helps you sharpen your skills,” Hylton added.
To receive Club Envoy credit, you must:
- Visit a minimum of three Toastmasters clubs in District 27
- Receive a signature from a club officer during each visit
- Please contact either District 27 Extension Chair Ralph Jones (firstname.lastname@example.org) or District 27 Retention Chair Altheria Barnett (email@example.com) to line you up with a non-charted or chartered club prior to any visit
- You must then contact a club officer of the club you intend to visit to provide any information required for building access
