How do you react when the club participation drops? I suppose there are two things you can do, # 1 is to cry, complain and curse. And 2nd thing you can do is strive to make the club attractive because people are attracted to attractive people, attractive events and attractive places.
When Division – J, District – 79 felt that they need a boost in Toastmasters activities participation, they adopted the 2nd principal and organized a Debate contest among the clubs. It created a flutter in the club activities and participation. As a TM standing on the platform on the day of train departure, I could see Toastmasters getting on the train and creating a buzz. The train was full and when the journey ended, the Facebook and the email boxes were full too with recognition, congratulations and accolades to the winner and participants.
A great job well done Division – J; District 79 Toastmasters for becoming more attractive.
