Essex Toastmasters Earns Distinguished Club Status

By on April 1, 2014

public-speakingEssex Toastmasters is excited to announce that the club has reached its Distinguished Club status! Toastmasters International encourages local chapters to participate in the Distinguished Club Program. The purpose of the program is to ensure the progress of clubs meeting educational and membership goals. Every year, high-performing clubs are recognized based on the number of goals they achieved, and may proudly display a Distinguished, Select Distinguished or President’s Distinguished ribbon on their club banner.

Earning the Distinguished Club status is the result of our members accomplishing their Competent Communicator, Advanced Communicator, and/or Competent Leader certificates. Essex Toastmasters’ next goal is to advance to the next levels of the program, which are the Select Distinguished Club and the President Distinguished Club. The club will be able to accomplish this with its active members continuing to achieve their public speaking and leadership goals.
