■  Massage from Club Growth Director/クラブ担当ディレクターからのメッセージ


Summer heat has gone and now we are in Fall, which is a good season to enjoy reading, art, tasty food, and especially for us, Toastmasters, speech contests! Now many Toastmasters are competing in Area Contests. Joining speech contests motivates us to learn advanced speech skills. And most of all, it is fun.


Under the current rules, the members of the chartered clubs can join the contests, while the members of the prospective clubs can’t. There are some prospective clubs whose members have been striving to get chartered in order to join Area contests. Fortunately, some of them have succeeded.


Do you know how many prospective clubs are in District 76 ? There is a list in the link below;.



Chartering clubs can be done only by team, not by yourself. It is a great opportunity to learn leadership and other skills. Also, when your club is successfully chartered , you can feel a huge sense of achievement.


From October, we are going to hold online seminars about examples of club building and workshops about learning speech craft, which are related to establishing new clubs. I hope these opportunities will encourage you to support prospective clubs and/or build brand new clubs in your region.

















■  【Important deadline is approaching】Reminder about club due/クラブ会費納入について

This announcement is a reminder about the club dues that should be transferred to Toastmasters International.


The club dues are required to be paid by October 1st. As of 16 Sep, the club due renewal is completed only by 59% clubs in total. We are afraid that connecting problems to the site will occur due to network congestion when the deadline is approaching. We advise the club officers to submit the dues sooner.


Refer to the following page regarding the procedure of transferring.











■  Registration will be started Soon! Fall Conference/まもなく秋季大会申し込み開始!

Registration for Fall Conference will be available on September 30, 2017.
