Tess 1

Wilsonville. Tess Daniel, VP Membership at Toastmasters for Speaking Professionals (TSP), has a sure fire way to bring visitors through your club door and convert them to members. Her method works! Tess’s vision, when she stepped into the role of VP Membership at TSP in October 2013, was “to attract and retain right fit members.” Since then, Tess has signed up 10 new members. She says, “That’s only the beginning!” 

Following Tess’s presentation, the dynamic duo, Capitol Division Governor Le Snelling and Past District Governor Ann Snelling, will present a mini version of their much-sought-after workshop, The Power of Engagement. Learn how you can increase membership in your club through connecting and sharing your stories.

You will be amused and challenged by the D7 Bit Players as they present “First Impressions.” We will finish the morning with presenations on using social media to attract visitors to your club. Register for It’s All about Membership!  today.
