Every club needs leaders who can move the club forward and work with and motivate others. One of your duties as a club officer is to identify members with leadership potential and encourage them to serve.

Hold elections at the first meeting in May, with new officers taking office July 1. In clubs that elect officers semi-annually, also hold elections at the first meeting in November, with new officers taking office January 1.


Article VI: Officers, Section 5

Nominations for club officers shall be made by a club nominating committee appointed by the club president at least two (2) weeks prior to the election. This committee shall consist of three (3) active individual members, when practicable. This committee shall present its report at the regular business meeting imme-diately preceding the business meeting at which the election is to take place, and shall present only the names of active individual members who have consented to serve if elected.

Further nominations may be made from the floor at the time of the election by any active individual member. All elections shall be by secret ballot, unless a secret ballot is dispensed with by unanimous vote, with a majority vote of all active individual members present and voting necessary to elect each officer.

The chair of the club nominating committee shall be the immediate past club president, unless the best interests of the club require otherwise.


At least two weeks before elections, appoint a nominating committee. Any current paid member of the club is eligible to run for office, and members may run for more than one office.

Offices to be filled are president, vice president education, vice president membership, vice president public relations, secretary, treasurer (or secretary- treasurer) and sergeant at arms.

All positions should be filled if possible. However, a club must have a minimum of three officers: the president, a vice president and the secretary or secretary-treasurer, and each of these offices must be held by a different person.


The nominating committee selects candidates for each of the club offices. The club president appoints a nominating committee of three members in good standing—one of whom being the immediate past president as the chair—at least two weeks before club elections.

The Club Constitution for Clubs of Toastmasters International states that clubs meeting weekly may elect officers annually or semi-annually. Clubs that meet less frequently than weekly must elect officers annually. Annual terms of office must run from July 1 through June 30; semi-annual terms run from July 1 through December 31 and January 1 through June 30.

Club presidents elected for a term of one year may not be re-elected for a successive term. Club presidents elected for a term of a half-year may be re-elected for one successive term of a half-year.
