Thousands of Toastmasters recently descended on the city of Las Vegas to attend the 84th International Convention. Over the four day event, I had the pleasure of meeting a number of toastmasters from all over the world. Each of us were not only there to improve our leadership and communications skills but to network. Each of us was a proud ambassador of our clubs. It was an awesome experience!

What about you? Would you like to become an ambassador for your club? Have you started to other clubs in your area/division? If so, why not share what you have learned, your observations and comments with your fellow toastmasters?

You can do that by joining the District 4 Club Ambassadors Program for a rewarding experience!

Please email me, Janice Hom, Club Ambassador Program Director, at ernestbear@yahoo.com.

What ideas are Ambassadors taking back to their own club?

  • Reaching out to those who couldn't attend through a meeting summary.
  • Holding occasional special events.
  • Having a sign in sheet for the participants (members and guests) to keep accurate records.
  • Adding the names of the officers in meeting agenda for the benefit of our guests.
  • Having large place markers with, for the officers, their titles on them.
  • Giving a CL ribbon to a member who had recently earned his award.
  • Having a dedicated member sews their ribbons by hand onto their Toastmaster banner.
