Victoria Quay is sponsoring an award for District 73 members who achieve a second and subsequent Distinguished Toastmaster Award.
The Distinguished Toastmaster Award has a demanding set of requirements with 40 speeches altogether, at least five workshops, and demanding leadership roles such as Club Officer, District Officer and starting a new club or reviving a failing club. These demanding requirements usually take several years for members to complete.
Distinguished Toastmasters have contributed a great deal to their Clubs, Areas, Divisions and District and in the process have learned many skills and acquired valuable experience. They can be a very great resource on a continuing basis at all levels.
The Double DTM award is designed to:
- highlight this continuing contribution
- recognise and honour the recipient
- encourage existing DTMs to aspire to achieve it
Right now we know of 77 members in the District who have achieved a DTM, but only two who have continued on for a second. They are Anna Riggs in Adelaide, and David Nicholas in Perth. It is proposed to present the Double DTM Awards at this year’s DTM Breakfast Event at the Convention, and at similar events from year to year.
Distinguished Toastmasters are a valuable resource for our District at all levels. Victoria Quay hopes to encourage more of our high achieving members to provide inspirational leadership by presenting them with the Double DTM Award.
