■  District Goal 2017-2018/ 2017年-2018年ディストリクトの目標

 “+5 members!”

   We would like to encourage all clubs to attempt to add 5 members in this Toastmasters year.

 These last two years,we have encouraged and emphasized the importance of the club membership to create quality meetings. We have explained that we can keep quality meetings if the clubs have 30 or more members. We are sure that many of the clubs have attempted to obtain 30 or more members. However, when analyzed the data of the membership in District 76, the percentage of the clubs which have 30 or more members remained on the same level, around 30 % (please refer to the Figure 1). We know that there are various clubs. Some have large number of members, others have small number of members. Therefore, we would like to set a more effective and realistic goal this year, which is “+5 members!”.

 If all the clubs achieve this goal, almost half of the clubs in District 76 will have 30 or more members (please refer to the Figure 2).   Even if the clubs have only small number of members, they would accomplish to challenge to the Distinguished Club Programs. Those mean we can activate ourselves more and more with having quality club meetings.

 To encourage to achieve this goal, we are going to take various measures; to hold more frequent online seminars to create quality club meetings which give more “Moments of Truth” to the guests, and to accelerate public relations to invite many guests. Also, we are going to support the clubs which have fewer members.

 As all of you know, we are going to start the new education program called Pathways in this term. Before such big changes, I believe that we should keep basic strength, which is the most important. And our basic strength means, of course, the members. They will definitely bring further developments to our organization. We believe that this goal is applicable to your club.

■  Club Officer Training #1/ 第1回クラブ役員研修

 The first Club Officer Trainings (COT#1) have been held in six Divisions and the three more are planned next month. The each training is planned under the following concepts. "Learn in Enjoyment", “Expand Our Network” and "Encourage First-timers”. Each Division chose programs from “Leading a Club to Success”, “Creating a Quality Club” and “Building a Healthy Team”. We held trainers’ trainings for all programs to help each presenter in advance. We also hold two special sessions “Resources” and “Pathways”, which are presented by District senior officers and Pathways Ambassadors.
