Key Toastmasters Club began the year with a membership of 10 members. Key Toastmasters Club needs 15 members by June 30th, 2018 to qualify for the Distinguished Club Program.

Goals 1 - 4 Communication Development

Our Plan to support our Club Members achieve their Educational Goals:

We plan to schedule speeches, and with the size of our club there is rarely much competition for the available slots. We have mentors for our new members, and ask that new members choose a mentor soon after joining. Our president gave a speech on the goals for a Distinguished Club this week, and new members were interested to know the requirements and to have a goal and a deadline to achieve it.

Goals 7-8 Membership Growth

Our Plan to attract new members and keep current members:
To keep current members, the club strives to provide a supportive and friendly atmosphere, to run well organized and timely meetings, and to communicate the weekly schedule and progress reports to the group by email.

To attract new members, we have a plan have occasional membership drives. One successful method has been to set up a table for the club at student events, to inform students about the club, and to collect emails of those interested, for follow up. We have renewed our membership in ASUU, which provides funding that we will use in recruitment, and also offers some exposure to potential student members. We offer a T-shirt to new members, and to ASUU members who attend two meetings, and also have a Toastmasters gavel pencil gift that we give to guests. Our president has flyers made up that members distribute around their departments, and places of work. Existing members often bring friends as guests. In addition, we have a Facebook page which does elicit some interest. We tend to have a guest approximately every other week. We also have a plan to set up a Meetup group.

Goal 9 Club Officer Training

Our Plan to get 75% of our Club Officers trained in the Summer AND in the Winter:

We currently have two officers who trained in the summer of 2016.

Club officers will stay in contact with the district director to find out when trainings are offered and make plans to attend where schedules permit.

2 officers from club Key Toastmasters Club completed training in the Summer TLI.

0 officers from club Key Toastmasters Club completed training in the Winter TLI.

Goal 10 Club Management

Our Plan for our Club to submit Officer's Lists on time:
Toastmasters key club will begin the process of electing new club officers in November 2016 and will be encouraging members to review their personal and professional goals for the year. An induction ceremony will indicate the official transition to new officers, and the information will be submitted online by the deadline.

How can the Area Director assist your Club to be successful?

We appreciate the Area Director's visit to our club recently. It helps to meet the director in person, and to know who to go to with questions and for help.

The Key Toastmasters Club President has requested a meeting with the Area D1 Director on 0000-00-00 to review the club’s Success Plan.
