Toastmasters are taught to run meetings on time, finish speeches on time and reach membership goals on time. In that spirit, “Beat the Clock” is a great motivator for finishing the year on schedule—and with a bang. The goal for your club is to earn the “Beat the Clock” award! Make this a contest in your club to encourage every member to get involved. Clubs adding five new, dual, or reinstated members during May and June receive a “Beat the Clock” ribbon to display on the club’s banner.
