         District Governor
                                  Gerry joined Toastmasters as a member of KennebecasisToastmasters Club which chartered in
                                  May of 1997. This new club was the very successful result of a Speechcraft Program. During his

       Distinguished by April 30th                                                                  From the desk of the District Governor

     As club leaders, how do we know we are successfully achieving the Mission of a Toastmaster Club; through performance evaluation?
     There are many signs within our clubs such as quality club meetings, supportive environment, members achieving educational and
     leadership goals and membership at or exceeding charter strength to name a few. Just as your performance review where you work is
     based on standards and criteria developed for your employment category or career position across the organization, Toastmasters has a
     performance review annually for all clubs around the world.

     The Distinguished Club Program in Toastmasters is the way club leaders around the world know that they are achieving the Club Mission.
     We as leaders are being evaluated on these program standards and criteria. Our Club Mission success is not determined in isolation but in
     comparison to our peers just like our employer’s performance review.

     Being a Distinguished Club in Toastmasters International puts your club in an elite group of clubs worldwide who have been evaluated by
     their peers to have successfully fulfilled the Mission of their Toastmaster Club.

     Our International President challenges we the club leadership to make every club around the world a distinguished club by June 30, 2006.
     As District Governor, I challenge you to “Expect the Best” from yourself as leaders and I encourage each and every member to challenge
     their club to be the very best it can be. Set a performance goal for your club to qualify to be a Distinguished Club by April 30 and know
     that you are successfully achieving your Club Mission. But don’t stop there aim high “Expect the Best”, President’s Distinguished.



           Word on the Street                                                                                         Article by Jim Bendell

         The 11th Annual Word On The Street took place in Halifax on September 25. Halifax is one of five Canadian cities which annually
         celebrate reading and writing and highlight the importance of literacy in our lives. This day long event involved authors, publishers,
         retail book and magazine sellers, writers' federations, libraries, universities, Neptune Theatre, and Symphony Nova Scotia to name
         a few. In short, anyone with an interest in reading, writing, and literacy was there. Halifax Word on the Street attracts about 40,000
         people to this event each year.
         Word On The Street was set up at Pier 21, an immigration museum, located on the waterfront in the south end of Halifax with
         about 50 booths and stages. At the stages authors presented 15-30 minute readings of their work and took questions from the
         audience. In addition, book signings took place throughout the day at various locations. Authors with local, national, and
         international reputations in their respective fields were drawn from the four Atlantic Provinces to participate in this event. The
         stages included Adult Reading stages,Kids Reading stages, and a Main Stage with a combination of spoken word presentations
         and entertainment.
         Toastmasters from Division D were involved at the stages where the authors presented their readings. A Toastmaster introduced
         each author, thanked him or her at the end at the end of their reading, and presented them with an honorarium. This event gave
         Toastmasters an opportunity get outside of their speaking comfort zone, learn how to use a microphone, meet and talk with the
         public, and share their Toastmasters skills with others. There were 15 members from 8 clubs who participated in the Word On The
         Street event.
         For the first time Toastmasters had a booth at which we were able to talk to a steady stream of visitors and promote our
         organization and its programs. The response from the public was very positive. Printed material was distributed to visitors as well.
         The benefits to Toastmasters of this kind of an event are enormous. Aside from the personal benefits to members who participate,
         our profile as an organization is certainly raised. The opportunity to talk to an audience of 40,000 visitors will definitely help clubs to
         attract new members. Word On The Street also gives Toastmasters a chance to give something back to the community and help a
         very worthwhile cause with a direct link to our mandate as an organization. Our involvement in Word On The Street goes back a
         number of years and we look forward to being keen participants for many years to come.

                                       Turning Guests Into Members

                                  Article by Shirley Kelly, DTM , PDG and Candidate for International Director, Region VII, 2005 -2006



  Many Toastmasters Clubs are successful at attracting guests, however, they have difficulty acquiring them as members.
  Sometimes guests leave with unanswered questions or misconceptions. Often Club members feel unprepared to offer
  guests guidance. Sometimes, by oversight, guests are not invited to join and leave wondering how they go about securing
  membership to the Club. A simple Guest Kit can provide many answers for guests, help any member consult with your
  guests and provide guests with a takeaway item for reference to help them consider the benefits of joining once they have
  left the meeting. Recommend that your VP-Membership prepares 20 Guest Kits and ensures the Club always has at least
  five on hand for any member to present to a guest.

  A Simple Guest Kit:
  Purchase a couple of packages of simple twin pocket portfolios (available in packets of 10 at most stationary stores for $3 -
  $4) or booklet envelopes (5 7/8”x 9 5/8 “) and place these seven items inside the Kit:

1. A one-page welcome letter from your Club President.
2. A promotional brochure from TI, such as Find Your Voice (catalog item 99) or Talk (catalog item 101)
3. A sample Club meeting agenda.
4. A one-page back-to-back description of our Toastmasters Recognition program from CTM/Competent Communicator to DTM.
 This helps the guest understand some of our acronyms.
5. A one-page copy of the descriptions of the Advanced manuals.
6. A Membership Application Form – the familiar Form 400. This is easily downloadable and printable from the TI web site.
7. A copy of the Icebreaker assignment so the guest can begin thinking about the first time he or she will present to the group.
  Remember ~ follow up each guest’s visit with a personal telephone call!
As a leader, you recognize the value of treating guests well and addressing their needs. A simple Guest Kit can help your Club be
more successful at turning guests into members! May be downloaded from the TI website.

Let the Contests begin!
It’s that time again – speech contests are right around the corner. Start early planning your club, area or division contest. There are some fabulous
trophies, plaques or medallions available through the Toastmasters International store website. Remember, they also offer engraving. Advertise
your contest and invite the world! Contest Rules are now available on the Toastmasters website www.toastmasters.org . Order several copies for
your club to ensure that everyone is well informed.

Why Compete?                                                                              Article by Deb Nowak, DTM – Division B Governor

. When it comes to competing in speech contests, some people think, “Not me,” while others are excited about the prospect. Where do you fit?
 While contests are not our main objective, they do offer benefits. Toastmasters International states there are three main purposes for having
 speech contests:
 1. To provide an opportunity for proficient speakers and those interested in competitive speaking to gain contest experience.
 2. To provide an interesting educational program for Toastmasters and the general public. A contest can create community awareness of the
 opportunities in the Toastmasters program.
 3. To provide an opportunity for those Toastmasters not participating in the contest to learn by observing proficient speakers.
 I think perhaps a better question than “Why compete?” may be “Why not compete?” Competitions offer advantages by requiring lots of practice,
 thereby promoting improvement. And for each higher level of competition, there is generally a higher level of proficiency, larger audiences, and
 an opportunity for yet another learning experience. Rather than limiting ourselves with “I’ll never compete,” perhaps you might want to try, “I
 am not ready to compete right now.” Placing boundaries can be a self-fulfilling prophecy. And who knows, next year may be your year.
 And what about your club? Are you in a “non-competitive” club? If you are, is your club truly serving the members? Or is your club denying
 them opportunities for improvement? After all, isn’t that why we are in Toastmasters–to improve?
 I understand that not everyone has a desire to compete–and that’s fine. If competing just isn’t for you, perhaps you can assist with another role
 needing to be filled. And what is a contest without an audience? Whether you chose to compete, to fill a needed role, or to be a spectator and
 support our fellow Toastmasters, it’s all beneficial. Go out and enjoy the contests!
