The Distinguished Club Program is an annual program, running from July 1 through June 30. The program consists of 10 goals for your club to obtain, using the Club Success Plan as your guide. To help keep track of your progress toward these goals throughout the year, updated reports for clubs in District 31 are posted daily on the Toastmasters International website. At year-end, the number of goals the club achieved is calculated. Based on the goals met and whether or not the qualifying requirement has been met, the club may be recognized as a Distinguished, Select Distinguished, or President’s Distinguished Club.
To be eligible for recognition, a club must be in good standing according to Policy 2.0: Club and Membership Eligibility, Section 4: Good Standing of Clubs and must meet the qualifying requirement of having either 20 members or a net growth of at least five new, dual, or reinstating members as of June 30. Transfer and honorary members do not count toward the qualifying requirement.
The Membership to Date number is reflective of the number of members that have paid dues to an individual club. This number matches the number of members on the club roster with exception to when members transfer out of one club and into another. If a member transfers to a different club, their original club will still retain credit for their membership until the next renewal cycle.
