The appointment lasts through June 30 of the current program year if the club accomplishes at least Distinguished Status by reaching at least 5 of the 10 Distinguished Club Program goals as well as obtained the required number of active members. If either of those two criterions are not reached in the current program year, the assignment can be extended for an additional program year to June 30.
After the club and Club Coach candidate(s) agree to work together, the club submits the completed Club Coach Appointment form to the district’s Club Growth Director ([email protected]) for further processing to World Headquarters (WHQ). WHQ replies to all either confirming the coach assignment start date or identifying why the assignment was denied.
In the event the assignment ends before Jun 30 (club coach is inactive, club coach relocates, etc.) the Club President or the Club Coach must notify WHQ ([email protected]) and the district Club Growth Director ([email protected]) at once of the assignment termination.
Note: Credit is not received until after year-end results are final.
After successfully completing the assignment, WHQ will send you a certificate of accomplishment, apply your leadership credit to your personal educational profile to apply towards your Distinguished Toastmaster (DTM) accolade, and you will receive acknowledgement from the District Team.
If your Club Coach role is successfully completed on or before June 30, 2022, your Club Coach credit can count toward both the club support and the district leadership requirements, if it meets the Toastmaster International incentive. For more details on how to apply this role for an education award, you can contact the Education Services team at [email protected].
If your Club Coach role is successfully completed after June 30, 2022, you submit the club name, club number, and date appointed on the DTM award application.
The Vice-President Education will approve your award application. The application is then forwarded to WHQ for you to receive credit towards your Distinguished Toastmaster accolade.
