New incentives for 2020/2021 are here!
District 37 and Toastmasters International offer incentives for achieving a wide variety of goals both at the club and individual member levels. For additional information on these incentives, contact Club Growth Director Jody Koonce.
July 1, 2020 – December 31, 2020
From now until December 31, your club has the opportunity to compete in a district wide BINGO contest. Download your card, follow the instructions and your club could win! Complete the tasks to get five across, down, diagonal, or fill in the four corners. Send the completed card to our District Director Michael Beach, DTM by January 15, 2021. Winners will be announced in late January.
Club Officer list must have been submitted to Toastmasters International by June 30, 2020 for the club to be eligible.
On your card, write the date in the block when the club completes a task between July 1, 2020 and December 31, 2020. The Club wins BINGO if it achieves five across, five down, five diagonal or fills the four corners. Please provide details of each achievement (e.g. who visited your club). Clubs can have multiple Bingos on a card but only one card per club and one recognition per club. Each Division will have three winners.
A Trio Member can not be a member of your club. CGD is Club Growth Director. District Support Team Member is one who works directly with a Trio Member on a team.
Completed cards can be sent to District Director Michael Beach and must be received by January15, 2021. It is suggested that the club Secretary manage the BINGO card.
