Electric Toasters Rocks the DCP!
The DCP stands for Distinguished Club Plan and is a set of ten goals that each Toastmasters club should strive for. Six of the ten goals are related to the educational program, two are related to membership, one is related to officer training, and one is for club administration. Toastmasters designates clubs that meet at least 5 of the 10 goals in the Toastmaster Year of July-June as “Distinguished Clubs” – less than half of clubs around the world reach this designation. Even rarer are the clubs that reach the “Select Distinguished Club” status (7 of 10 goals) and the “President’s Distinguished Club” status (9 of 10 goals). I am proud to announce that Electric Toasters has met 9 of the 10 goals and attained the President’s Distinguished Club status for the first time since the 2003-2004 Toastmasters Year. Congratulations to club president Jeff Brooks and to all of us for rocking the DCP!
Here are the goals that we met to reach President’s Distinguished Club Status.
