District 41 Toastmasters
I am pleased to present to you the District 41 PR Awards for the term 2017-18. These awards are designed to recognise the Best Clubs which:
• Promote Toastmasters in the best light, aligned with the Brand Standards and the Brand Promise.
• Maintain proper channels of communication and update them regularly.
• Follow the Best Practices in Public Relations to the best of their abilities.
The criteria for each award have been designed to reflect the essentials of what the particular medium of PR pertains to. In order to help all the clubs aim to achieve these awards, the PR Team will be organizing several webinars over the course of the year. We will also be providing a detailed feedback on all entries that meet the qualifying requirement and guidance for those which don’t.

These points will be totalled. The entry that receives the maximum points in this tally shall be deemed as the winner.
