Distinguished Toastmaster Award

DTM Requirements

The Distinguished Toastmaster (DTM) award represents the highest level of educational achievement in Toastmasters.

Members earn it by completing dozens of speech projects, serving leadership at the club and district level, supporting a new or struggling club, impacting the community with Toastmasters, and leading a major project to benefit an organization.

To earn the DTM in the Pathways learning experience, you are required to:

  1. Complete two learning paths.
  2. Serve as a club officer for 12 months, participate in the preparation of a Club Success Plan, and participate in a district-sponsored club officer training program. (If your club has six-month terms for officers, you can fulfill this requirement by serving as a club officer twice, but you don’t have to do it in consecutive terms.)
  3. Serve a complete one-year term as a district officer.
  4. Serve successfully as a club mentor or coach.
  5. Serve successfully as a club sponsor or conduct a Speechcraft or Youth Leadership program.
  6. Complete the DTM project. (Members are required to create and implement a project of their own design, in which they demonstrate the skills and expertise they have gained.)
