Congratulations Tongue Tamers!

Hi Tongue Tamers,

You may already be familiar with the DCP program, but if you are not: DCP stands for Distinguished Club Performance, which is a program run by Toastmasters International and designed to provide a benchmark to measure club performance. In the course of one Toastmasters year (7/1 – 6/30), each club is supposed to met certain goals. If a club reaches 5 of 10 goals and has at least 20 members or a net growth of 5 new members by 6/30, it can call itself Distinguished Club. If it reaches 7 of 10 goals, it can call itself Select Distinguished Club. If it meets 9 of 10 goals, it can call itself President’s Distinguished Club – it does not get any better than that. So how did we do in this competition?

– We have achieved President’s Distinguished every single year since 2010 – that is 6 times in a row.
– This year, we have met 10 of 10 goals – there are 33 clubs in our local Division G and only 4 of them have scored a perfect 10. But none of them did it with as few members as Tongue Tamers!

Our score card is attached for your review. I would like to thank all of you for your commitment and dedication, which have made this remarkable result possible. You have every reason to be proud of this accomplishment and, hopefully, we will do it again next year!

Stefan Blasig

Please remember that social media only works well if content is shared.  Everyone can do that, should do that – don’t wait for the usual suspects (aka, club officers) to take the lead.  We will soon be on Facebook, Google Plus, and YouTube as well.  Stay tuned and get involved to make our club bigger and better!

Thanks for your help.
