Support for Base Camp Managers in the Clubs

Every Toastmaster year we have new officers and thus new Base Camp Managers (VPE, Secretary and President) who are supposed to help their members. We found that at the start it might be a bit much and therefore provided a webinar, conducted by Steve Miller (thank you very much) which is recorded.

Pathways Resources Collection

During the service as Pathways Ambassadors and Pathways Guides we created and collected quite some resources which can help members and club officers.

Excerpt from: “The Possibilities of Pathways” by Paul Sterman, Toastmasters International Magazine, July 2016

In 2010, the Toastmasters Board of Directors crafted a five-year strategic plan that laid out the goals and objectives for the organization over the next five years.
The plan’s centerpiece? A call to revitalize the Toastmasters education program. Much of the communication track hadn’t been updated since the 1970s, and leadership became a separate track in 2005. The Board stressed the need to modernize the communication track and to renew the focus on leadership learning in the leadership track.
The original vision marked the beginning of a hugely ambitious effort to enhance the education program. Early in the process a Board committee analyzed the skills, competencies and attributes required to succeed in all different roles in Toastmasters, including club-meeting roles and leadership roles at all levels. The committee studied where members learned these skills, competencies and attributes—was it in Toastmasters or outside Toastmasters?

This detailed analysis was a critical step in the revitalization process: It determined the gaps in the Toastmasters learning experience (…)

 From the outset, members have played a vital role in the revitalization process. Early on, more than 270 members were chosen to be Learning Masters, a group that offered valuable feedback to the Pathways team on the educational content and learning experience. Other members were chosen as Chief Ambassadors and Ambassadors, to share information about the program with members, making them aware of the many benefits it offers, providing updates on its progress and answering questions.

The Pathways development team also gathered data through a competitive analysis and member surveys.
They learned what members wanted to see in an education program.

The content that has resulted from this early and extensive work reflects a dynamic, skill-loaded program that will benefit members in many ways.They will have greater access to educational materials, expanded tools and resources and a customized learning experience, designed to help meet personal and professional goals.
