Club Ambassador Program
Grow Your Comfort Zone
By organizing visits to other clubs, the Club Ambassador Program (CAP) helps both individual Toastmasters and clubs explore new opportunities and expand their horizons.
Why Be an Ambassador?
There are over 16,600 reasons why visiting different clubs makes sense.
After completing a club visit, submit your post-visit report here.
The Club Ambassador Program (CAP) fosters the mutual growth of both individual Toastmasters and clubs by encouraging members to visit other clubs within or outside the district — or around the world.
For individuals, visiting other clubs provides an opportunity to explore other Toastmasters environments and gain new experiences and speaking opportunities. For clubs, hosting a club ambassador can energize meetings and share new ideas and viewpoints with its own members.
In addition to recognizing the best practices of club visits (as reported by club ambassadors), the Club Ambassador Program also presents awards to Toastmasters for making the most visits and to clubs for hosting the most visits.
Why Visit Another Club?
Being a club ambassador provides an opportunity to share your experience as a Toastmaster and can help the clubs you visit bring out the best in themselves. Moreover, you’ll learn new ideas and best practices and you can bring back to your own club. Simply put, the Club Ambassador Program creates opportunities to proliferate the best of Toastmasters.
- Gain confidence from speaking in front of unfamiliar audience.
- Expand your horizon by meeting people and learning new things.
- Get new ideas to bring back and rejuvenate your home club.
- Gain more experience to become a club coach, mentor, or sponsor in the future.
- Fill in a functionary or speaker role when the club needs help.
- Exchange ideas with the host club to learn something new.
- Any member in good standing, including area and division directors, can participate.
- No sign-up is necessary.
- Earn 1 point for each individual club you visit within the district during the Toastmasters year. (You may visit a single club as many times as you wish. However, only 1 point will be awarded for that club.)
- An area director and/or division director visiting clubs within their own area or division is not eligible to earn points for their visits.
- To earn credit for a club visit, club ambassadors must submit a report within 7 days of their visit.
- District 101 will recognize the Toastmasters with the most points and the clubs which have hosted the most ambassadors at district events.
- In addition, the top-three Toastmasters who earn the most points will receive gifts at the end of the Toastmaster year.
