Membership Building

There’s one more thing that I forgot to mention in yesterday’s post.  Our club is also up for the Smedley Membership Building Award for having five new members join between August 1st and September 30th.

Judging from our current roster on the Toastmasters site, we’ve met the requirements.  It should just be a matter of World Headquarters processing the information.  They tend to be about two weeks behind on this sort of thing.  But, considering that all the clubs are submitting their semi-annual membership renewals for October 1st, I wouldn’t be surprised if it took a bit more time.

I’ll let you all know.

The Smedley Award is one of three annual membership building contests that Toastmasters recognizes during the year.

The Smedley Award is named in honor of Ralph C. Smedley, the founder of Toastmasters.

The other contests are:

  • Talk Up Toastmasters: Held between February 1st and March 31st.  This focuses on spreading the word about Toastmasters to non-Toastmasters and coincides with the Spring Membership Renewal period
  • Beat the Clock: Held between May 1st and June 30th.  This coincides with the end of the Toastmaster year and is an opportunity to meet the minimum membership requirement of 20 members or to make one or both of the 4 new member goals of the Distinguished Club Program.
