Speeches Outside of the Club

There is a two speech limit per manual in the traditional education program but this is not the case in the Pathways program. There is not a limit in the number of speeches you can complete outside of the club. The requirements for completing speeches outside of the club in the Pathways program are as follows:

  • Speak to your VPE/executive committee and receive approval for completing your project outside of your club
  • Meet the project requirements
  • A Toastmaster must be present for your evaluations
  • Receive a verbal evaluation
  • Receive a written evaluation

If this criteria is met, your project will be eligible for credit. The intention of the Pathways program is to be more flexible as life is ever-changing more now than ever!

Pathways Evaluation Forms

Pathways

PATHWAYS EVALUATION FORMS

Evaluations are a fundamental part of Toastmasters. We learn and improve by giving and receiving good evaluations.

In a verbal evaluation, the evaluator begins with what they did well, makes a few suggestions for improvement, and then concludes their evaluation with what they did very well, followed by a summary.

Pathways projects include either one or two speeches that needs to be delivered to complete the project.

Following are the evaluation forms for all the Pathways projects. They are PDFs. In most cases, they contain editable fields. This means the evaluator can type the evaluation directly onto the form if they wish, and email it to the speaker.

Alternatively, you can click on the link, download the form to your computer and print it.

Club Success Plans

Club Success Plans

by Keith Maderer, Club Growth Director

TM Club Success Plan

As many of you know, the Club Success Plan is a vital tool for the success of any club. But all too often, clubs just ignore the process of completing this valuable blueprint to success.

This district has offered a monetary incentive to clubs that take the time to complete theirs and submit it to the district before December 31st, 2017.

We will give each club a $25 gift certificate to the TI Store that can be used to purchase supplies or anything else that the club needs.

We have also provided a link the Club Success Plan as an MS Word document that you can download, fill in, save and email to the district to receive your $25 incentive.

This document was provide and edited by several of our great toastmasters. Mike Reinbolt and Molly Duteau both added input and helped us make this process easier for you. Please thank them for their efforts.

When complete, you can email this .doc file to d65trio@gmail.com to receive your $25 incentive. Thank you for taking the time to help your club succeed.

District Director’s October Letter

By Ellen Pieklo, DTM 

District Director

Ellen Pieklo

Dear District 65 Toastmaster,

It’s hard to believe that it’s already October and our contest season is well underway. As with everything in life, we’ve had a few glitches but Glenn Gordon, Division A Director, provided speech contest training on September 16, 2017. This webinar is available to listen to and view. Hopefully this will minimize a few of the issues that arise during contest season. Good luck to all of our contestants and I wish everyone the best of luck with your fall competitions. Contests will be held at each Area and each Division, with the 5 finalists competing on November 10-11, 2017 at the Fall District 65 Conference in Buffalo, New York.

The Fall Conference will be the last District 65 Fall Conferences. After this fall, if we should conduct fall contests, those contests would stop at the Division contest level. The division contests could compete at the next spring conference – or end at the Division Level. This will all be up to our 2018-2019 Leadership team.

Our Fall 2017 Conference Committee is working to ensure this will be a conference worth coming to and worth remembering. To register, there is a link on the District 65 Home page, located at www.tmdistrict65.org.

I see people are working toward our incentives, especially creating a Club Success Plan. Already, we have awarded several $25 gift certificates for the TI store, heard about planned open houses, and we’ve already welcomed our newest Toastmaster Club, ERG (HSBC), in Division A. We wish all of your new ERG members an amazing Toastmaster journey.

Our new District leadership is working hard to fully implement the concept of fewer emails but as matters arise, we are also trying to keep members in the loop and ensure we don’t end up with clubs losing their active club status, resulting from missed dues periods. We keep all of information posted on the official web page, www.tmdistrict65.org and the official Facebook Page, located at: https://m.facebook.com/toastmastersd65/?ref=bookmarks.

What’s up with Pathways? That’s a recurring question all of D65 Leaders are hearing. We plan to have a conference session updating members to the Pathways rollout status during the Fall Conference. If you are well into your Toastmasters learning path and concerned that you may need to convert to the Pathways program goals, think about attending our Road to Distinguished Toastmaster (DTM) seminars, held on the last Sunday of the month at 7PM. These will be posted under our events page.

I would also like to announce the start of a second set of leadership opportunities, Monday Nights Toastmaster Matters. This will be an opportunity, held on the second Monday of the Month to address your concerns, ask questions, or just talk about Toastmasters and learn from your District Leadership. Call information will be sent out under our events calendar.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve you as your District 65 Leader and am wishing you a continuously successful Toastmaster Year.

Sincerely,

Ellen Pieklo DTM

District 65 Director
