About the Club Ambassador Program (CAP)
Expand your Toastmasters experience by participating in the District 84 Club Ambassador Program (CAP). We’re encouraging you to take a step outside of your club and to visit at least three clubs you’re not a member of. You have a lot to offer clubs when you visit and also have much to gain and bring back to your home clubs!
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Building upon the success of last year’s program, the Club Ambassador Program (CAP) has evolved and there are a few new changes to the program you must be aware of.
- The submission time frame for credit visiting a club. All CA visit report forms and documentation must be submitted within 28 calendar days of visiting a club!
- Submission is done by submitting to the submission form. Complete the form and upload the supporting documentation which is the email confirmation of visit from any officer of the visited club along with the snapshot of the virtual meeting showing your virtual meeting gallery of attendees.
- Third, if you are visiting a club in person, you can print the Club Ambassador PDF form prior to your visiting the club. At the meeting, have the club officer sign the form. Then you can upload a picture of the form into the submission form to the Ambassador Chair.
