Build Up Membership & Earn a Smedley Award

Kiminari Azuma, DTM
District76 Lt. Governor Marketing, 2013-2014
Smedley Award - Club Membership Building Contest
Contest Dates : August 1 - September 30, 2013

It all began in 1924. Ralph Smedley invited a few men to meet in the Santa Ana, California YMCA where he conducted the first meeting of what would eventually evolve into Toastmasters International.

One person initiated a program that would go on to affect millions of people. In his honor, can your club add five new, dual, or reinstated members between August 1 and September 30?

By doing so you'll qualify to receive:

- A "Smedley Award" ribbon to display on your club's banner.
- A special discount code for 10% off their next club order (discount code expires six months from date of issue).

You will also receive a $20 Gift Certificate for the Toastmasters shop from District, if your club fulfills the requirement to earn Smedley award.

Membership applications and payment for members who join between August 1 and September 30 must be received at World Headquarters, or online, no later than September 30.

Each member's join date as listed on the application must be no later than September. Transfer and charter members do not count for credit.

Attention, Vice President Education! Plan now!

Vice President Education, please don't miss this opportunity to help your members work on CL projects.

I suggested you nominate a member to serve as the Membership Building Campaign/Contest Chairman, and also nominate members as assistants to the chair. At the end of the Smedley award term, those members will receive credit for the following projects.

Membership Building Campaign/Contest Chairman
- CL8 : Motivating People
- CL10 : Team Building

Assistants to Membership Building Campaign/Contest Chairman
- CL6 : Organizing and Delegating

Please plan now, welcome new members, and recognize members who contributed to the campaign!
