District Assistance

Enrich the District by sharing your experience and networking. Develop team-building skills, expand leadership experiences, increase facilitator and negotiation proficiencies, and develop diplomacy and marketing skills – all while completing an essential step towards your DTM award.

Serve a minimum of six months as EITHER:

New Club Mentor

Build a nurturing relationship with a newly chartered club, educating and training by example. Club Mentors instill best practices from the beginning to help the new club learn about Toastmaster traditions, meeting and officer roles, and offer encouragement so members experience the fun and success of a well-run Toastmasters Club. Club Mentors stick with the new club for at least six months, attending meetings, and encouraging participation in Area, Division, and District events.

Guide a club with 3-12 members through the process of effectively identifying and maximizing its strengths to realize its potential, and to provide the resources and tools that enable and empower the club to achieve its long-term strategic goal of continuous growth.

The goal of the Club Coach is to help the club achieve recognition in the Distinguished Club Program which is accomplished by:

  • Building rapport with club officers and members
  • Instilling enthusiasm, camaraderie, and structure within the club
  • Assessing the club environment and recommending best practices for success
  • Working with club officers to develop a Club Success Plan
  • Encouraging the club to strive for Distinguished Club Program (DCP) recognition

Community Outreach

Enrich the community by sharing Toastmasters. You can develop the next generation of Toastmasters or welcome aboard the newest members to our District, while sharing the wealth of knowledge you’ve gained from your experience as a Toastmasters.

Serve as EITHER:

New Club Sponsor

Identify a new club opportunity in the District or accept an assignment with a new club lead.

Your role begins after a new club lead has been verified and there is ample interest in starting the club.

New Club Sponsors collaborate with the Club Growth Director and the Club Extension Chair to establish a strong foundation for the prospective club.

Help the prospective club charter and celebrate the success with the newest members of District 84.

Share the tenets of Toastmasters’ communication and leadership with the next generation. Work with an existing youth group or advertise to the community at large. This workshop series is presented using Toastmasters materials and is ideal for groups of 10-25 students.

The Speechcraft digital experience allows experienced Toastmaster members to help non-Toastmasters become Speechcrafts – essentially the best communicators they can be! It is a great way to promote membership in your community or corporate club because Speechcraft allows prospective members to see for themselves what Toastmasters is all about.
