Distinguished Club Program 

The Distinguished Club Program is an annual program, running from July 1 through June 30. The program consists of 10 goals a club should strive to achieve (set out below). World Headquarters tracks the progress of clubs throughout the year. Monthly reports are available on the Toastmasters International web site (www.toastmasters.org). At year-end, World Headquarters calculates the number of goals achieved by a club and recognizes it as a Distinguished Club, Select Distinguished Club or President’s Distinguished Club based upon the number of goals achieved and the number of members it has.
