“Having a quality club is the first step in retaining members and net membership growth is our indicator of excellence.”

Esteemed Toastmasters,

Greetings from your Club Growth Director and Club Growth Team.

During September/October, we focused on membership retention. The questions we faced were how to help our clubs to better serve their members, improve membership retention, and how to achieve excellence. The answers are multi-faceted, but we all agree that having a quality club is the first step in retaining members and that net membership growth is our indicator of excellence.

All of us in District 46 can push ourselves and support a fellow member in setting and achieving their goals. Supporting each other will inevitably lead to achieving our goals and retaining more members to continue their Toastmasters journey. I encourage each of you to maintain a quality club and strive to retain existing members and recruit new members — so that your club can have a net membership growth at the end of the 2018-2019 Toastmasters year. Net membership growth is our indicator of excellence.

It is for this reason that there are various incentives created in 2018-2019 that will reward club membership growth.

I am very pleased to share with you the Leadership Challenge and Net Membership Growth Award Winners.

46 clubs have proactively renewed 20 members or more by September 20th. These clubs will receive a $50 Toastmasters International (TI) Gift Certificate from District 46 on December 1st, 2018 at the Holiday Celebration.
