How is your Membership Campaign?

Good Morning ! I have been absent for 12 days away in Miami for the 69th Toastmasters International Convention. It was an eye-opener for me there in such a great convention.

BTW, how is the membership campaign ? Have clubs in your areas recruited new members ? We are convinced that they are working very hard to bring Toastmasters benefits to the community.

* Toastmasters can benefits virtually everyone
* A person will join if he or she believes in you
* You must encourage the VPM of every clubs to guide prospective members to understand the importance of Toastmasters learning opportunities
** make every club meeting a sales tool
-- have a well planned club meeting agenda. The Toastmasters of the day will keep the meeting on track
-- General Evaluator manages the evaluation of the club meeting He/she introduces the grammarian, Ah counter, and Speech Evaluators He/She then provides a general overview of the meeting, highlighting areas which was well done and suggest areas of improvement
-- Speech evaluators shall provide feedback to manual speakers Begin with comments reinforcing specific things the speaker did well. Next provide areas for improvement - be specific and positive. Finally close with a positive/upbeat comment designed to encourage the speaker to give the next speech
** table topics master to lead the impromptu session. Topics to be drawn from a variety of current issues and sources
** Timers shall play an important role to help the speaker to keep their time.

Please spread the words round your community. Invite guests, invest them to join. Follow up to help them join. Then encourage them to participate in the Toastmasters program......

Kindly circulate to all your clubs members and let us make the August/ September membership campaign month a great breakthorugh.
