Club Coaching


A Club Coach is an experienced Toastmaster who is appointed by the Club Growth Director to help a struggling club with 12 or fewer members. Responsibilities include assessing the club environment, recommending solutions and assisting the club in increasing its membership and fulfilling the requirements necessary to become Distinguished or better.

Up to two (2) Club Coaches may be appointed by the Club Growth Director to one club at a time for credit. An appointment lasts 1 to 2 years, until June 30th of the first year if the club achieves Distinguished status or better OR June 30th of the following year if the club does not achieve Distinguished status the first year. A Club Coach cannot be a member of the same club he/ she is coaching.

A Club Coach appointed by the Club Growth Director will receive a Club Coach pin. Club Coaches who help their clubs achieve Distinguished status or better by June 30th receive a certificate and credit toward the Advanced Leader Silver (ALS) award or Pathways Award credit. If a club achieves Distinguished status or better by June 1st, the Club Coach will also receive a gift from District 35.

If you are interested in becoming a Club Coach, please fill out the Club Coach Appointment Form, and Dave Reed our Club Coach Chair will contact you shortly.
