Receive Email Announcements from District 76

District 76 official announcements to Club Presidents and VPEs such as this “District 76 Times” are made through the mailing list, but some of these announcements seem to be irregularly or even always forwarded to the spambox in email clients.

Here I briefly introduce some tips to receive the emails from District 76 correctly. We note that for members other than club Presidents and VPEs, the tips are applicable to any other email announcement.

*This article is for your convenience. Please note that we do not provide technical support.

1. Unmark the spam

Open a spam-judged email in the spambox and make a report of “not a spam” on the email. The reported email will be automatically moved from the spambox to the inbox.

2. Receive emails from D76 correctly in future

The below methods (1) and (2) can make the emails from District 76 forwarded into the inbox correctly in future. If use a smartphone, for (2), you have to login to the Gmail through not the Gmail APP but the mobile browser and enable the Desktop view.

(1) Add the email address of D76 to your address book (easy)

Add District 76-related addresses to the address book. For example, add the District 76 Presidents/VPEs mailing address to your contact lists of Gmail (Google).

(2) Create the filter for D76 (recommended)

Open the email in the inbox (see 1. above) and set up filtering.

Confirm that the District 76 mailing address is filled in on the “From:” item, and choose “Create Filter”.

Check the box of “Never send it to Spam” and choose “Create filter”.

Twitter Campaign (Naka-no-hito; Social media manager) 7th Period Results

Application Period:3/21~4/20 Measurement Period:3/21~4/30

We have received submissions from many clubs during the above application period. We are pleased to announce the top three contributors.

The following prizes will be awarded to the top three contributors’ clubs (designated clubs at the time of submission).

Prize: $10.00 Gift Certificate to be used on Toastmasters International’s website.

We will contact them individually for shipping method and timing.

The winner has been selected based on the number of impressions per tweet (how many people see it), not the number of “likes” or “retweets”.

The number of engagements (エンゲージメント総数) increases with the frequency with which a posted image or link is clicked on. For this reason, posts with images and links tend to be higher, so we have chosen to rank them based on the number of impressions.

Multiple entries by the same clubs and posts by the digital marketing team are excluded.


[The first place] Nishinomiya TGIF Toastmasters Club
Impressions: 3,285

[The second place] Shin-Osaka Leaders Toastmasters Club
Impressions: 1,609

Impressions: 699
