Would you like the opportunity to network with fellow Toastmasters as you create your club’s Open House?
In this session you will learn about the planning and logistics for a successful Open House and receive some great ideas on
how to include the important ingredient—FUN!
Creating a Club
Every Toastmasters club needs a plan. Toastmasters International has designed a plan for clubs to use. A quality club environment is the single most important factor in a healthy club. The Distinguished Club Program monitors and measures a club’s achievements. The Club Success Plan is the ROAD MAP to club success and meeting members’ needs. Sometimes the Success Plan can be overwhelming to the executive team, but it doesn’t have to be.
This session is designed to help clubs work through the plan and develop a
strong road map for the club to follow.
Our virtual world continues to challenge us. Managing online meetings doesn’t have to be painful, especially with great technology like Zoom.
This session is designed to help solve those “problems” you may be having, and help to master the use of Zoom. It can be fun once you know what to do.
Developing Leaders -
Resolving Conflict, Pt. 1
Conflict is a part of life. People will always have differences. It is how we handle those differences that can lead to either a positive or negative result. Part I session is designed to help members know and understand what is happening in the conflict, why it has occurred, and what to do about it.
Part 2, next month, will share the resolution process, how to apply it, and how to apply assertive language to help deescalate a conflict.
Journey to DTM
The journey to Distinguished Toastmaster (highest award) is an exciting and rewarding experience. If you are interested in taking this wonderful journey, this session is for you! It will help you plan, move through the steps, and enjoy receiving the highest award in the organization.
