District 86 Alignment - 2017

Jacklyn PayneJacklyn Payne, 2017/2018 District 86 Alignment Chair

Every Fall, the Alignment committee begins to look at all clubs and areas across the district to ensure that they are well served by District 86. Clubs are assigned geographically and except for a few rural areas, most clubs in an area are within ten miles of each other.

The goal is to ensure there are 4-6 clubs in each area, so that area directors can help clubs succeed in their club planning, training, education, contests, and Distinguished Club Program goals. From Toastmasters International's experience of over 90 years, clubs have the most success following this formula.

The Alignment Chair is appointed by the district director. Division directors are given the first opportunity to be on the committee. If you would like to serve on the Alignment committee, please contact your division or area director or the Alignment Chair. Your input is always welcome.
