2017 Smedley Award Winners
Congratulations to Capital Club and Closers! They have each won a Smedley Award and a ribbon for their banner. Capital Club added 5 new members and Closers added 6 new members. Well done!
What is a Smedley Award you ask? And why didn’t my club win an award? Excellent questions.
The Smedley Award is a membership-building award. Simply add 5 new members to your club between August 1 and September 30 and you win the award. VPEs and Club Presidents, mark your calendars for 2018 and pass on the information about the award to the Toastmaster who assumes your role next year.
And, here’s some great news! Membership building awards happen 3 times throughout the Toastmasters year. Add 5 members to your club between February 1 and March 31 and you will win the Talk Up Toastmasters Award.
In case you’re wondering, the third membership building award is Beat the Clock and it runs from May 1 – June 30.
Keep these awards in mind as you plan spring open house events or Speechcrafts. Add 5 members and get an award for your club.
