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!
Free Toast Host Website – Quick Tips
By Keith Maderer, DTM, Club Growth Director
If your club is using the Free Toast Host (FTH) website that every club receives for free when they file an Application To Organize (ATO) or become a Chartered active club, then you will want to check out this quick tip.
How to make the most of your Free Toast Host website.
1. If you are already using the FTH site
Make sure you always add guests to your FTH guests email list. Then you can always invite them to meetings, open houses, contests and other social events.
Use member profile photos on your agendas. When a guest visits your club, their printed agenda will show the names and profile photo of your members that are speaking and filling the meeting roles.
2. If you are a corporate club, but are not using it yet.
Setup your FTH website (it is free) and use it just for your members, agendas and email contacts.
Use this site to help promote your club to others within your corporate environment. Use photos, TI video tips and downloads to help your membership grow.
We are very lucky. Our own Roger Morehouse, DTM is one of the FTH Ambassadors. Even better news is that he is our District 65 webmaster, the Area 42 Director, and a proud member of District 65. Thank you Roger.
Wes Brzozowski from the Endwell club is also an Ambassador for FTH and is a great resource for maximizing the use of search engines to find club websites.
