Newsflash – Update on progress towards the President’s Distinguished Award!

Dear Spa Speakers,

You may or may not know that the committee is striving to achieve the fabled President’s Distinguished Award, the highest honour that Toastmasters can bestow upon a club for being amazing! We are keen to extend our great track record in this regard and secure the top award for the 12th time in 14 years. (Click here to read more about our past performance)

The President’s Distinguished Award can only be achieved if the whole club is committed, so here is a quick update on where we are and what needs to happen before 30th June to get there.

Meet the Heroes of Spa Speakers, 2017-2018!

We need to get 9 Distinguished Club Points (we’ll call them DCP points from now on) out of the maximum 10 to achieve top honours. So far we have secured 4 of them, so 5 more to go!

But will we get them?

Yes!

Achieving the President’s Distinguished Award depends on our members, and at Spa we are lucky to have true heroes who are dedicated to the cause. Keep reading below to see who in the club will be working to make 2017-2018 another distinguished year! (if the table below doesn’t show up in your email, click here)

Matt Dutton, our Vice President of Membership, got us our first and second DCP points by recruiting 24 members! (we only needed 8 members, Matt!!)

Status: Done!

Kash Baga got us our third DCP point by acheiving his Advanced Communicator Silver Award!

Status: Done!

Fiona Clayton at Spa Speakers Fabulous Fiona has won us our fourth DCP point by achieving her Competent Leader Award!

Status: Done!

Our trusty Treasurer, Michael Roberts, will be getting us our fifth point by ensuring membership dues are collected on time. Members, make his life easy and pay up for the March Renewals!!

Status: almost there!

David Thompson, our spectacular Sergeant at Arms, will get us our sixth point by attending a Club Officer Training event in London on Feb 21st, thereby meeting the criteria that 4 club officers attend training in each 6 month period.

Status: almost there!

Rachael Siggers will win Spa our seventh point when she achieves her Advanced Leader Bronze! Just one educational speech to go!

Status: almost there!

Louise Weickert will make it eight points by completing her Advanced Communicator Bronze! Just 2 more speech projects to go!

Status: almost there!

The club needs 2 members to achieve their Competent Communicator award for our ninth and final DCP point. Right now, Ginny, Elaine and Layla have just 2 speeches each to finish up earning their awards. We’d like all 3 to get their awards by end of June so we comfortably get our point! You are all so close!!

Status: almost there!

On behalf of the club, thank you all for what you have done and are continuing to do for Spa Speakers. It’s really appreciated!

Final Note!

We could still get 10 points; if Layla, Ginny, Elaine and a mysterious fourth member all get their Competent Communicator, it’s possible! If anyone who has completed 5 or more speeches from their CC is interested in finishing the rest before June 30th, get in touch with the committee ASAP!
