Smedley Award (Membership Building Contest)
Aug 1 – Sep 30 all-day

All Toastmasters clubs need new members. Even though your club may currently enjoy a healthy membership, a few months from now that could change as members move, change jobs or reach their objectives.

  • By adding new members, your club will benefit:
  • Increasing more meeting participation
  • Improving learning opportunities

Adding chances to hone new skills Conducting a membership-building contest is an easy way to gain new members.

Can your club add five new, dual, or reinstated members with a join date between August 1 and September 30? Accomplish this goal and you’ll qualify to receive a “Smedley Award” ribbon, named in honor of Ralph Smedley, which you can display on your club’s banner. Qualifying clubs can also earn a special discount code for 10-percent off their next club order. (The discount code expires six months from the date of issue and is not valid with any other offer.)

Need help? Contact your Club Growth Director for details!
