End of “Beat the Clock” Program
Jun 30 all-day

Toastmasters are taught to run meetings on time, finish speeches on time and reach membership goals on time. In that spirit, “Beat the Clock” is a great motivator for finishing the year on schedule—on time and with record numbers!  Make it your club’s goal to earn the “Beat the Clock” award and encourage every member to take part. Clubs adding five new, dual or reinstated members with a join date between May 1 and June 30 receive a “Beat the Clock” ribbon to display on the club’s banner. Qualifying clubs also earn a special discount code for 10-percent off their next club order. (The discount code expires six months from the date of issue and is not valid with any other offer.)

End of District Open House Incentive
Jun 30 all-day

To receive $50 reimbursement from District 7, your club’s open house must be conducted by 11:59 pm on June 30, 2020. Any open house conducted after this date will not qualify for reimbursement.
