A Toastmasters District exists to grow its network of clubs and strive for excellence. District 74’s goal is to support 250 Healthy Clubs in Southern Africa. The focus on “Healthy Clubs” is important as we are not just chasing a number. Therefore it is important to understand how District 74 defines “healthy clubs” when we start and support clubs.
What is a healthy club?
A healthy club is a club with strong Vital Signs that is distinguished every year. Vital Signs provide an ongoing indication of club health and an indicator on what the club will accomplish during a Toastmasters Year (for more information on the Vital Signs read Erich Viedge’s articles, soon to be published).
Toastmasters International’s Recognition Programmes
The Distinguished Club Programme
(DCP) defines ten goals for a club to achieve during a Toastmasters Year. Based on the number of goals achieved (and a membership pre-requisite) a club is recognised as Distinguished, Select Distinguished or Presidents Distinguished. The number of Distinguished Clubs in a District is one of the goals of the District Recognition Programme (DRP), thus contributing to the measure of our District’s overall health.
