TOWARDS CTMs and ATMs
Dear Fellow Toastmasters
Early Bird CTM or ATM
Do remember that the deadline for the Early Bird CTM or ATM Awards is
October 31, 2000. An 18k gold plated miniature Toastmasters pin awaits the
Toastmaster who attains his or her CTM or ATM Award.
Similarly, Clubs attaining 4 CTMs and 2 ATMs by October 31, 2000 will
receive either the "Better Speaker Series" worth US$29.95 or "How To Conduct
Productive Meetings" worth US$30.00.
These Awards will be presented by the District at the Johore Bahru
Convention this November. As at September 29, we have 52 CTMs and 22 ATMs.
Effective Evaluation Video Tapes
Evaluations play a vital role in helping members become more confident and
effective speakers. It is important that evaluators realise the need for
supportive useful evaluations.
To help Clubs and Members, I have ordered a copy of the "Effective
Evaluation" video tape for each of our 12 Divisions. The stock arrived last
week and Division Governors will receive their copy soon. These video tapes
are for loan to clubs to give members a better idea of supportive useful
evaluations. This is a new item and can be ordered from WHQ. Price
A mentor who guides and supports a member for project speeches No. 8, 9 and
10 towards CTM will be awarded a Mentor Certificate. Mentors can submit
their names, Mentee's name, Club Name to me at : firstname.lastname@example.org
Better Speaker Series
To help members present better speeches, Club Officers and members can
conduct "Better Speaker Series" at Club meetings. Appoint Mentors to coach
members who need help in their speeches.
If we want our members to become more effective speakers, we must encourage
more and more CTMs and ATMs.
Friends helping friends succeed.
