Beat the Clock

Toastmasters are taught to run meetings on time, finish speeches on time and reach membership goals on time. In that spirit, "Beat the Clock" is a great motivator for finishing the year on schedule and with a bang.

The goal for your club is to earn the "Beat the Clock" award! Make this a contest in your club to encourage every member to get involved.

Clubs adding five new, dual or reinstated members between May 1 and June 30 receive a "Beat the Clock" ribbon to display on the club's banner.
