District 32 is encouraging members to step out of the comfort of their clubs, step up as a committee member, and step into the journey of fellow Toastmasters.

Approximately 60% of our clubs qualify for a club coach, yet less than a handful have an assigned coach. The Coaches’ Corner is a support committee for club coaches and all clubs needing assistance in enhancing the health and vibrancy of their club leadership and meetings. To encourage more Toastmasters to step up and help clubs in need, Toastmasters International has included an incentive that will allow club coaches to earn their district leadership requirement if they coach an eligible club to distinguished with twenty members by the end of this Toastmaster year. If you don’t want to give up competing in speech contests, this may be your year to sign up as a club coach. All you need to do is to enroll as a club coach, serve a minimum of six months, and help a fellow club reach excellence.

HYBRID CLUB COMMITTEE
Approx. last Thursday of the month (12:00 noon Alaska / 1:00 PM Pacific). Click HERE to register.

How are you coping with our Zoom world? Some clubs are exploring getting back to in-person meetings and creating a whole new Toastmaster hybrid experience. Is this happening in your club? If it is, we would LOVE to have you or someone from your club join us. Committee members will help new-to-the-process clubs and glean lessons learned from clubs that have been meeting hybrid-style for a while now. The goal is to assist hybrid clubs in facilitating happy, healthy, and vibrant participation from all members regardless of attendance in-person or online.
