Club Meeting Contest Requirements and Criteria

As I promised you all yesterday, today I’m sharing the requirements for participating in the Eastern Division‘s first Club Meeting Contest and the criteria by which the meetings will be judged.

In order to take part in the contest, clubs must fulfill the following requirements:

  1. Club is willing to compete and is available to compete on April 9th.
  2. Club is in good standing with Toastmasters International.
  3. Club participates actively in the DCP program.
  4. Club will perform a 30 minute meeting for the contest.
  5. Club must have enough members to cover all meeting roles.

The three clubs chosen to compete will be rated on scale of one to ten in each of the following criteria:

  • The Meeting begins and ends on time
  • All meeting participants arrive on time and are prepared
  • Members and guests alike are greeted as they arrive and are made to feel welcome
  • The program is fast-paced, interesting and fun
  • Transitions between segments are smooth
  • All members present have an opportunity to participate
  • Evaluations are helpful, constructive and contribute to members’ personal growth and improvement
  • Member’s achievements are recognized
  • Members are enthusiastic and are enjoying themselves, and it shows
  • Total DCP Points as of March 25th

As I mentioned, our Area Governor will be deciding whether we will be competing during her club visit on March 23rd.
