District 57 Award
You already do several things in Toastmasters…
Are you at a point in your public speaking career where you want to challenge yourself? Do you have a member in your club who may also be interested in a challenge?
You could run a Speechcraft or a Youth Leadership Program. Or how about mentoring a new member in your club.
If you’ve given a speech in which you demonstrated expertise in your personal or professional life, why not use your next speech project to apply to a bigger goal.
Consider a plan of action based on the OATM award.
The OATM (Outstanding Achievement Toastmaster Award) is a District 57 award that builds on your achievements in several different areas, at the club level, as well as by participating in a variety of District level events as a Trainer, Judge, or official in different capacities.
If you are interested in volunteering at the District level, why not have a plan, that builds a program for the year, that results in an OATM. Please examine the current OATM form, with requirements in each category.
In the near future, there will be a District 57 training to help prospective OATM candidates plan their OATM course of action for the 2023-2024 year.
If you have any questions, you may speak with a club member who has earned an OATM in the past, or please ask me further questions.
Together we can make a difference,
Program Quality Director

The beginning of each new term, starting in July, clubs start to assess where they are, and what goals they want to accomplish this year. Use these resources to help your club get started to formulate your club goals.
