District 72 Citations

This page outlines the rationale and criteria for the District 72 Citations.

Rationale: 

Whilst the District 'Toastmaster of the Year" awards recognises achievement in the previous Toastmasters year (only), there is a need to recognise members who make an ongoing contribution to Toastmasters in New Zealand over several years. Some become familiar faces at District level, but some work away in the background at Area or Division level. This is the District 72 equivalent of the TI Presidential Citation.

The District 72 Citations are presented to deserving members of our organization each year to acknowledge outstanding Toastmasters who have made contributions to their Club/s Division and District 72, as well as the organization, usually over several years.

The number of District 72 Citations to be awarded each year are determined by the current trio (DD, PQM, CGD) having cognisance of this being a prestigious award to be sparingly given.

Past recipients of this award are ineligible.

Criteria: 

Nominations may be made by any current or past Club President or District Officer and must be received by the District Director by 31 March. The awards are determined by the current trio (DD, PQM, CGD), who separately vote as follows

  • 5 points for the most deserving nominee.
  • 4 points for the next most deserving nominee.
  • 3 points for the next most deserving nominee.
  • 2 points for the next most deserving nominee.
  • 1 point for the next most deserving nominee.
