As the Year Winds Down, Turn Your Attention Towards Earning Distinguished Club Status
The Distinguished Club Program is an annual program, running from July 1 through June 30. The program consists of 10 goals for your club to obtain. At year-end, Toastmasters International calculates the number of goals the club achieved. Based on the goals met and whether or not the qualifying requirement has been met, the club may be recognized as a Distinguished, Select Distinguished or President’s Distinguished Club.
Take a moment to view the progress many clubs have made in the Distinguished Club Program so far this year.
To help keep track of your progress toward these goals throughout the year, updated reports are posted daily on this Toastmasters International website.
