The Distinguished Club Program

The Distinguished Club Program (DCP) was established by Toastmasters International as a general measure of club success. Each year the Distinguished Club Program recognizes clubs that have outstanding achievements in education, membership and club building, club leadership, and club communication. This measure is not the whole of what makes a club successful, but it does reflect some of the more common activities that help make a club successful.

To help members achieve their personal goals, clubs are encouraged to define a mission statement and create a Club Success Plan, which for many clubs will be based on the targets outlined in the Distinguished Club Program. The Distinguished Club Program therefore has the duel benefit of helping both the club and its members.
