Join us for the first District 100 Social Media Workshop series!
Thursday, February 18 & 25 | 6:00 - 7:00 PM

These weekly one-hour sessions will provide clubs with the background and tools necessary to fully utilize social media platforms to promote their meetings and other activities. These sessions will go over ways to (1) establish your club presence on these platforms; (2) develop a social media brand and outreach strategy, and (3) curate posts and content that will get people's attention.

We had over 50 participants at the first session and we'd love to see you at the next sessions!

Don't miss out on the opportunity to learn in these valuable social media skills from social media pros!

Chartering a New Club Just Got Easier!
Effective immediately, any new clubs that organize now through June 30, 2021, will have the charter fee ($125 USD) and the new member fees ($20 USD per member) waived. More information is available on the Toastmasters International website

Do you have a prospective club or a club lead? If so, reach out to Club Growth Director Mike O'Neil to discuss!
Have you set up your Club Speech Contest yet?

Speech Contest season is coming soon! This year, each club will be able to send one contestant for each contest (International Speech and Table Topics) to the Area Contest held on Saturday March 13th. Tell your club officers today that you're ready to compete!
Visit the District Contest Resource Page here, which includes an updated contest script that you can use to help run your club contest!

If you don't want to compete but would still like to check out the contest, consider becoming a contest functionary! We are looking for time keepers, sergeant-at-arms, judges, Zoom masters, and other functionaries to help make the Area Contests as smooth as possible. If you are able to help, please reach out to
Program Quality Director Charlotte Naugle.

Take a few minutes to read Daniel's thoughts on the five ways you win simply by competing in a speech contest.
