Club Coach Program

Is Your Club Healthy?

Take the Club Health Quiz

  • Does your club have 12 or fewer members?
  • Are members are not coming to meetings?
  • Are there no guests coming to meetings or joining the club?
  • Are members not giving Pathways speeches?
  • Are members not earning educational awards?
  • Is the club struggling to achieve Distinguished Club Program goals?

If you answered “Yes” to one or more of these questions, your club’s health could improve with the help of a Club Coach.

Toastmasters only has one requirement for a club looking for a coach: the club must have 12 or fewer members at the time of the request.

Do not wait until your club is falling apart to ask for a coach; ask for one as soon as your club membership drops to 12 or below. If your membership is too high for a coach, but you still think you need one, call your area director and ask for help. Your area director can come in as an unofficial coach and provide you with some ideas to begin rebuilding your club.

When you reach out and share your skills, experience and time, not only will you help your fellow Toastmasters, but you will also enhance your speaking and leadership skills, and take something back to your own club – in more ways than one.

Club Coach Program Stipulations

• The district director or the club growth director is responsible for assigning a club coach.

• A club must have at least one but not more than 12 members when a coach is appointed, and the coach cannot be a member of that club until their appointment request has been processed.

• Up to two coaches may be appointed to a club.

• The appointment lasts to June 30 of the current program year if the club becomes a Distinguished Club or better. If Distinguished Club Status is not reached in the initial program year, the assignment will be extended to June 30 of the following year.
