“The greater the loyalty of the group toward the group, the greater is the motivation among the members to achieve the goals of the group, and the greater the probability that the group will achieve its goals.”
– Renis Likert
District 26 has used the international brand refresh as the catalyst to raise the bar and expand our training to include all forms of communication. We believe that in going beyond public speaking to promote effective oral communication, leadership skills, and use of social media, we will reach a wider audience and develop a more professional image and performance. We urge all clubs to post a link on their website that will take members directly to the District 26 Dialogue and the D26 website.
If clubs are to thrive, every member must take an active role in promoting Toastmasters. Review the marketing resources above and share your own ideas and success stories with the district.
“People share, read and generally engage more with any type of content when it’s surfaced through friends and people they know and trust.”
– Malorie Lucich, Facebook Spokesperson
Recognition Program Update
Recognition programs have been established by Toastmasters International for all levels: Club, Area, Division, and District. The recognition programs are describe in the Club Leadership Handbook, and the District Leadership Handbook found on Toastmasters.org. Throughout the year, you can check on the progress and status of your clubs, areas, divisiosn and District 26 on the Toastmasters Dashboard.
Additionally, District 26 has rolled out incentives for Members, existing Clubs, District Officers, District Leaders, and new Clubs. From time to time we will add new incentives so be sure to check back often.
Improved Login Webpage
To make logging into the Toastmasters International website easier, the login webpage has been enhanced. Now you can recover your password easier and log in with either your email address or User Name. A new “Keep me logged in” option will remember your login information from your personal computer for three months.
Receiving Multiple Magazines?
Many Toastmasters receive duplicate copies of the Toastmaster magazine each month because of multiple club memberships. Use your extra magazines to bring new members into your club by following these suggestions. If you prefer to receive your magazine digitally instead of in hard copy, or to cancel extra subscriptions, notify firstname.lastname@example.org
Our members come from a wide range of interesting cultures and professions. Check out the interview at Qi Quong with Travis Usinger, president 2012-2013, Summit Toastmasters # 7064.
