2023-2024 OATM – Outstanding Achievement Toastmasters

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,

Sally Philbin,
Program Quality Director
District 57
