Membership Building

Open Houses

An Open House is one of the most powerful ways of building membership. It provides a friendly and inviting means of demonstrating a club meeting and giving prospective members a taste of the benefits of joining your club.

Each club that conducts an Open House will be reimbursed up to $40 by the District. To receive reimbursement, complete a reimbursement voucher, provide copies of receipts and the event flyer, and submit all to the Club Growth Director – [email protected]

How about holding your Open House in conjunction with a Toastmasters International Membership Building Contest?  See details below:
