District 86 – Area and Division Success Planning

Area and Division teams develop their success plans based on the needs and goals of the members they serve.  The Area and Division Success Plans evaluate current situations, establish specific goals, and develop strategies to achieve success. 

The Toastmasters International document “District Recognition Program” (available on this page) includes templates for District, Division, and Area success plans.
