The DCP ensures productive meetings. Focusing on the educational goals of the DCP will keep us moving through the
education program. When members earn communication and leadership awards, they gain much more than just a certificate or points
toward the DCP; they gain the satisfaction and confidence that comes from completing a goal. They also provide an inspirational
example for other clubs, who can see the transformation that has occurred as a direct result of Toastmasters training. Other
aspects of the DCP help keep meetings productive, too. Keeping club membership at or above 20, for example, will fill club
meeting roles and maintain the energy level needed for a successful meeting.
The DCP provides structure and guidance. Clubs that perform well in the DCP always know who should be doing what and
when they should be doing it. The club officer training requirements of the DCP, for example, help ensure that club business is
conducted fairly, efficiently and in accordance with Toastmasters policy. Similarly, the educational goals of the DCP provide
direction and incentive for all s to achieve individually as well as collectively.
The DCP increases the enthusiasm of the club. The goal is not for clubs to compete against one another; it’s for all
clubs to strive to achieve the same standards of excellence. Nonetheless, striving for achievement in the DCP program is a way
to engage the spirit of friendly competition that can help motivate club s to perform their duties with gusto.
