What are the benefits of being a member?

When you first register with us, you will receive your Competent Communicator and Competent Leadership Manuals from Toastmasters International. There are 10 basic projects in the Competent Communicator Manual and each focuses on a fundamental skill required in public speaking. The Competent Leadership manual guides you throught the appointments in meetings and each project highlights a basic skill needed to be an effective leader.

 

As a member of Tiarel, you are also entitled to attend our regular chapter meetings held every 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month. During these meetings, you can have a go at impromptu speeches (Table Topics), project speeches and ultimately evaluations (giving constructive feedback to your peers).

 

Should you wish to polish your leadership skills further, you can also volunteer to serve as a club officer.

What happens after CC?

After you have completed your Competent Communicator (CC) manual, you can choose 2 advanced manuals from the 15 Advanced Communicator manuals. After completing them, you would achieve Advanced Communicator Bronze (ACB).

 

Each advanced manual contains 5 projects.

The advanced manuals are:

The Entertaining Speaker

Speaking to Inform

Public Relations

Facilitating Discussion

Specialty Speeches

Speeches by Management

The Professional Speaker

Technical Presentations

Persuasive Speaking

Communicating on Video

Storytelling

Interpretive Reading

Interpersonal Communication

Special Occasion Speeches

Humourously Speaking

I have been diligently doing my speeches. Do I get any recognition?

When you finish your 10 basic projects, Toastmasters International (TI) will award you the title of Competent Communicator(CC). Should you desire, TI can also mail a congratulatory note citing your achievements to your employer.

 

After you have finished your basic projects, you can move on through either the communication track or leadership track.

Along the communications track, you can achieve titles like Advanced Communicator Bronze, Silver and Gold. Along the leadership track, you can achieve Competent Leader, Advanced Competent Leader Bronze, Silver and Gold. When you have both Advanced Competent Leader Gold and Advanced Communicator Gold, you are a Distinguished Toastmaster (DTM).

 

These titles are useful as goals throughout our Toastmasters journey, directing us to work towards learning and practicing our communication skills. Also, DTM is not the end of Toastmasters. Many Toastmasters have completed their DTM and proceeded to re-do it once more with different manuals!
