Membership Matters

Membership growth is a critical to the continued success of each club, area, and our division.  But how to achieve it?  WE is KEY!  With a two-fold plan that involves the commitment of the club and division leaders.

Club Event

The Division F Leadership is challenging each club to host an event open to the public (or, if you have a closed club, open to the group/company you are affiliated with).  This club event is meant to promote awareness of toastmasters and encourage new membership.  Some ideas on possible events:

  • Standard Open House – invite people to one of your regular meetings with a focus on explaining the meeting (roles, agenda, etc).
  • Club Contest – use your club contest to get people interested in toastmasters!
  • Information Event – host an informational session where people can learn about your club.  If you have the funds for it, considering offering free food and/or beverages (e.g. Costco pizza and sodas)

Pick an event and pick a time then start promoting the heck out of it (tell co-workers, friends, other organizations you’re affiliated with, etc)!  Your division can help, too.  Most promoting will depend on the type of club/event but at the very least we can post information regarding your event on the Division F social media pages as well as get it in the monthly newsletter.

Division-Wide Awareness

Your division team pledges to work to inform the larger central valley audience, such as local chamber of commerce and news outlets like http://www.turlockcitynews.com, of the value of toastmasters and promote our local clubs.  Getting the word out and offering a listing of clubs to check out will help us sustain a healthy growth throughout the year
