February Fireside Snippet

Fireside Snippet - 7th February 2024

Dear District 98 Members, 

Wishing you a Happy New Year !!!

Starting in 2024, we’ll be sending Fireside every week – Weeks 1 and 3 will be an important snippet, and Weeks 2 and 4 will be the detailed dossier.

Here is an important D98 action item for this month:

D98 Influencer

You can be the NEXT Influencer!

All you need to do is add 3/5/7/10 New Members to your club (paid until September 2024 in a single transaction), between 1st February and 31st March (Membership should commence in February or March) and get incentives worth up to Rs 4750.

Pro Tip: An Open House or Membership Campaign is the best and quickest way to identify new members. You can plan a Friends & Family Day or Each One Gets One, or a Fun meeting, etc 🙂 By experience, February and March are good months to hold one.

NewYear NewMe

The end of a year brings with itself the necessity (or rather peer pressure) to take New Year Resolutions :p

As we commence the New Year 2024, make Toastmasters a part of your pledge towards self-development and growth.

Presenting to you – New Year NewMe!

Renew your membership (for Apr-Sep 2024) before 15 Feb 2024 and take home one of the following TI merchandise:
* Parker Pen
* Coffee Flask
* Sling Bag
* Dry-Fit T-Shirt
* Membership Pin

Why wait until you can renew your Toastmasters membership and Take the Pledge of New Year NewMe today?


Dynamo Club

Additionally, clubs can vie for the coveted Dynamo Club Award. You can call your club a Dynamo Club if your club achieves 5 DCP points and has 20 renewals (or Base +3 – whichever is lower), for the Apr-Sep 2024 cycle by 15 Feb 2024.

Clubs that achieve this will receive Toastmasters merchandise worth Rs 2000 of their choice.
