If you’re receiving this message, you already have a password for the district website — but may not know what to do with it. This training session is for district officers, division directors, and anyone else who might want to share content on the district website.

Division Directors are encouraged to share this invitation with their PR Officers, area directors, and workshop presenters who would like to promote their presentations or share slides, links, or follow up resources after an event.

As District Webmaster, I must review everything before it gets posted but will do my best to make that a minor speed bump, not a roadblock. One of my goals is to make the website a reliable source of information members can refer to for event listings and contact information. What would be even better would be if we can make it a lively and engaging reflection of the district and a recruiting tool for all our clubs. Tune in to find out how you can be part of that.

The Toastmasters District 47 blogging program wants YOU! We will be able to attract more people to our website — and ultimately into our club meetings — if we share more compelling content and engage more people than just the official PR/social media in the creative process. We have people who can check your spelling and coach you through the mechanics of creating online content.

This webinar will cover the basics of writing blog posts, adding images and other multimedia elements such as video, and submitting your posts for publication. At the conclusion of the webinar, District Webmaster David F. Carr, DTM, will tell you how you can obtain a user name and password. (Note: this event was rescheduled from Tuesday to Thursday to avoid a conflict with another webinar).

New Post menu item appears when you are logged in as a contributor.

David covered similar material in a recent online presentation on blogging for Toastmasters pursuing the Pathways “Create a Compelling Blog” project and/or creating online content to promote their clubs. This session will be more specific to the district program and also cover how to submit events to the calendar on the district website.

We will cover what content is appropriate to share at the district level and what would be more appropriate to publish elsewhere. Things that would be appropriate to share at the district level include:

  • Contest speech videos
  • Educational content about public speaking or presentation technique
  • Lessons learned from Toastmasters leadership
  • Any content that showcases the personal and professional value of Toastmasters, particularly if it would be of interest to non-Toastmasters whom we would like to recruit.

This online training will be hosted on Zoom, an online video meetings platform, with plenty of time for your questions.
