Applies to: District Director, Program Quality Director, Club Growth Director and Division Director Candidates
At area and division speech contests, all candidates may distribute campaign materials. They may also display campaign materials in a candidates' corner at these events if space is available for the candidates' corner and if all candidates have equal access to it. Campaign materials may not be placed on walls, chairs or tables outside of the candidates’ corner.
At the district conference, all candidates may distribute campaign materials, and they're allowed to display campaign materials in the candidates' corner at a district conference. Campaign materials may not be placed on walls, chairs or tables, or handed out at educational sessions, meal functions or the district hospitality suite.
Speeches and Speaking Guidelines
Campaign speeches are not permitted at any area speech contest, division speech contest or other district non-election meeting except the district conference. At the discretion of the area or division director responsible for the speech contest, candidates present at the contest may be introduced to the audience if all candidates present are introduced.
All candidates in contested races for district office, including floor candidates, may be allowed to speak at the district conference at a time other than during the district's annual business meeting. These campaign speeches must be given at an appropriate time and place, and be of an appropriate length, as identified by the district director, provided that all candidates are given an equal opportunity and are properly notified.
All candidates are allowed to give educational presentations at district conferences, provided the presentations conform to the needs of the district, and provided that all candidates for the same office are given an equal opportunity.
Please note that the District Director has determined that the only campaign speeches permitted shall be during the Annual Business Meeting and that no candidates for District Office shall be permitted to present an Educational Session.
The only hospitality suite permitted at a district conference is the one provided and operated by the district, with no contribution from any candidate. The provision of a hospitality suite is, however, at the discretion of the district director.
Advertisements by or on behalf of candidates for district office are not permitted in district publications.
Endorsements by current District Officers are NOT permitted per Toastmaster's Policies.
This includes Area Directors, Division Directors, Finance Manager, Administration Manager, Public Relations Manager, Club Growth Director, Program Quality Director, District Director and International Officers.
Violation of any of the above rules may result in disciplinary action against a candidate, which could include disqualification for office.
Candidates for Elected Positions will be interviewed starting February 4th and the Nomination Report will be published by the District Director 6 weeks prior to the Spring District Council Business Meeting.
