The D53 Toastmaster Calendar... 2007-2008

Ever feel like you don't have the "Big Picture" for the whole Toastmaster year? Does it feel like there are lots and lots of details that you should be on top of as a club officer, area governor or district officer?

Well, here is a solution ...
The District 53 Graphic Calendar for 2007-2008.

(click here for a pdf version of the pages shown below).

Your first impression might be that it looks pretty cluttered (colorful, but cluttered)... but if you focus on a particular month (July for example) it is really pretty simple. The key activities are listed right there!

The year is also divided up (and color coded) into about 4-5 phases depending on what is going on and each is labeled across the bottom. The Red months are not labeled but I think we all know what RED means.

Over the past few years these months have been known as "Crunch Time" ! (Ask Past District Governors Paul Young and John Lynch about "Captain Crunch" the next time you see them!)

From the month you started with, you can look ahead a little bit or all the way to the end of the year. When is the deadline for dues? Look it up quickly and easily!

What do you think? Let us know in the comments.

Please note... if you print out the calendar, it was designed for Legal-size paper (8.5x14) so you will need to plan accordingly.
