Marketing Incentives

As a member, a part of the team, you may ask: What’s in it for me if I participate as a team member? Fellow Toastmasters, District 22 is prepared to offer several incentives throughout the 2015-16 year. The following are a sample of some of the incentives:

  • For individuals and/or clubs we are offering BINGO for both halves of the year (July 1 – December 31, 2015 and January 1, 2016 – June 30, 2016). The BINGO cards are available on this site http://d22.toastmastersclubs.org/  under “Downloads”, Incentives. They are named in honor of District Director April’s emblem, the Ninja. Their titles are Ninja Ichi (Ninja One) and Ninja Ni (Ninja Two). You will find as you play these games that the opportunities are growing experiences for you.
  • For individuals we are offering sponsor and mentor pins when they accept that responsibility. Identified coaches will receive a magnetic name badge.
  • For individuals we will offer a “Spirit Award” as the occasion presents itself.
  • For individuals we will offer an incentive for a New Club Lead that charters.
  • For clubs we are offering the 3-2-1 dues renewal incentive again for both halves of the year.
  • For clubs we will provide a “District 22 DCP Club Success Plan” gold ribbon to display during your meetings.

  • For Area Directors we are offering a TM messenger bag to the first AD in their respective division to submit all of their AD Visit Reports for both halves of the year.
  • For working the TI-initiated membership building contests (below) there are many advantages to working these contests, not the least of which is adding value to your club with new members bringing new insight, enthusiasm, knowledge as well as  their circle of potential new members.
