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.

The District has created an account on Meetup.com for clubs in the district to list their club meetings. We need a contact in each club to maintain the meeting listing and respond to people interested in attending your meeting. If your club would like it's meeting listed, a member of your club needs to:
Email with their account name and the club they will manage.
A administrator of the district group will add the meeting with a generic description and list that person as the Meetup organizer. The Meetup organizer can then update the details on the page. The organizer will get an email when someone RSVPs to attend the meeting.
