Your Path to Distinguished Toastmaster

The path to DTM is a deeply personal journey that many Toastmasters embark upon, but less than 1% of all Toastmasters achieve. Distinguished Toastmasters accomplish a set of core competencies in order to earn the right to add “DTM” in their signature line.

  • Personal Development through education: two unique Paths in Pathways
  • Leadership Experience: serve one year as a club officer (or two six-month terms) AND one year as a District leader
  • District Assistance: serve as a New Club Mentor OR Club Coach
  • Community Outreach: serve as a New Club Sponsor OR Youth Leadership Program Coordinator OR Speechcraft Coordinator
  • DTM Project: create and implement a project of your own design, demonstrating the skills and expertise you have gained

What step is next in YOUR Path to Distinguished?

    > I want to get on the list to serve as a Club Coach
    > I would like to offer a Youth Leadership or Speechcraft program to my community
