Club Growth Tip - TM as a leadership development program
Looking for a way to help your Corporate Club grow? Rebrand it as a leadership development program.
The key to a successful corporate club is the support of senior leadership. If you want that support, learn to think like a corporate leader. This group is looking for “return on their investment” and “value added.”
It is expensive to keep training and hiring new employees due to turnover. Position your Toastmasters Club as a leadership development program and watch your membership soar!

Betty Puckett has been a toastmaster for five years. She says, “I joined toastmasters because I had decided to be more involved in politics and thought it could help me speak more eloquently with candidates and other constituents.” She claims she “was slow to get started, but once I read the manual and learned what Toastmasters could do for me, I was hooked!” There has been no stopping her. She adds she has enjoyed every step of her journey to reach DTM in four years.
You can help with two different types of Gavel Clubs
According to Toastmasters International, “Gavel Clubs are open to those individuals who are unable, either because of age (youth) or other circumstances (prisoners), to be a member of a regular Toastmasters Club.” Gavel Clubs operate like a traditional Toastmasters Club, using the Competent Communication and Competent Leadership manuals. They are not eligible for enrollment in Pathways. The Gaveliers are able to earn educational awards equivalent to those earned by Toastmasters, with a few exceptions.
Our call to action regarding collection of manuals for Gavel Clubs has been a huge success. It's fantastic that Toastmasters are willing to step up and donate their manuals to the gavel clubs.
Members have asked where to take their extra manuals?
