The Distinguished Club Program is an annual program, running from July 1 through June 30th. The program consists of 10 goals your club should strive to achieve during this time using the Club Success Plan. Each incoming Club President is given a book called, “Distinguished Club Program / Club Success Plan — How to be a Distinguished Club” at the beginning of his/her term. If your President has not received one of these books, please contact your Area Governor.

World Headquarters tracks the progress of your club toward these goals throughout the year, sending quarterly progress reports to your Club President and posting monthly reports on the Toastmasters International website. At year-end, World Headquarters calculates the number of goals the club achieved and recognizes it as a Distinguished Club, Select Distinguished Club, or President’s Select Distinguished Club based on the number of goals achieved and the number of members it has.

Goals to Achieve

Following are the goals your club should strive to achieve during the year:

  1. Two CCs
  2. Two more CCs
  3. One ACB, ACS, or ACG
  4. One more ACB, ACS, or ACG
  5. One CL, ALB, ALS, or DTM

  7. Four new members
  8. Four more new members
  9. Minimum of four club officers trained during each of two training periods
  10. One semiannual membership report and one club officer list submitted on time

In addition, your club must meet a membership requirement. At year-end (June 30th), it must have: at least 20 members OR a net growth of at least five new members.
