District 29 Clubs have an extra incentive to boost their membership during the Toastmasters International Smedley Award Membership Campaign, which runs from August 1 – September 30. Bring in 5 new, dual, or reinstated members during the campaign period, and you will earn a special Smedley Award ribbon for your club banner, along with 10% off your next club order with Toastmasters International!
In addition to these incentives, District 29 Clubs that bring in 5 new, dual, or reinstated members will receive a $50 gift certificate from the TI store. The Smedley Award Membership Campaign, named after Toastmasters founder Dr. Ralph Smedley, is a great opportunity for clubs to Raise the Bar when it comes to membership building.
How do you build membership? Invite friends and colleagues to meetings with guest speakers. Host an Open House. Advertise on your company’s Intranet. Use social media. And speaking of Open Houses, if you host one AND win a Smedley Award for bringing in 5 new, dual, or reinstated members during the same campaign period, you’ll earn “Smedley Plus” recognition at the District 29 Mid-Year Gala in November.
