D26 2010 FALL DRAFT
Congratulations to these clubs! So what is the Smedley Award?
Here are 10 great questions to ask or put on a questionnaire to intrigue people about Toastmasters:
So, now what can we do? Talk with our club’s Vice President of Membership and Vice President of Public Relations about their plans for the Smedley Award so we can incorporate what they are doing. Offer our help with their plans. Invite co-workers, friends, family, and people you see to the next meeting and offer to pick them up if that is feasible. Help by being a good role model at the meeting. Sit with our guests, explain what is going on during the meeting, and answer questions. Talk to them after the meeting about any questions or concerns they may have. Be sure we have a current Membership Application available. Go over any Toastmasters materials with them that were given at the meeting. Invite them back and to join.
Toastmasters is an organization that can benefit so many people in ways we can’t even imagine. Give people the opportunity to explore what Toastmasters has to offer. Good luck on the first draft of the season. Take ownership of the selection process and enrich the lives of your fellow Toastmasters with the people you know. Together Toastmasters is changing humanity one member at a time!
Until next time "Be the leader you expect others to be".
