Hello. I am Taka Miyawaki and I will serve as Program Quality Director (PQD) this year. Let’s enjoy and learn together!
When you complete an educational achievement (Pathways level completion, special program completion, etc.) and register it with your club, your name will be reflected in the report on the Toastmasters International website below. Please use this report to verify your registration.
Educational Award Achievements: http://reports.toastmasters.org/reports/dprReports.cfm?r=3&d=76
Also, if you achieve three or more educational awards, you will be recognized as a “Triple Crown”. You can check your achievement on the following page.
Triple Crown: http://reports.toastmasters.org/reports/dprReports.cfm?r=19&d=76
I believe both reports should be showing last year’s achievers at the time this newsletter is published, but will soon reflect the new achievers as registration progresses.
With the start of a new year, we have a new club officers installed. Toastmasters provides training opportunities twice a year to help officers run clubs smoothly. All club officers and members assisting the officers are welcome to attend.
This year, District 76 (Japan) will hold its first COT between July 31 and August 28. All meetings will be held from 1 to 5pm via online conference (Zoom).
By attending the COT, you can get information and tips to have fun leading club activities and helping members grow, as well as network with division/area directors and other club officers.

District 76 will hold four contests in the 2022-2023 year.
First, the club- to division-level “Evaluation Contest” and “Japanese Evaluation Contest” will be held online from September to December.
Prior to this, we are planning a workshop in August to help you facilitate the evaluation contest and make it a valuable learning opportunity. Details will be communicated separately.
“International Speech Contest” and “Japanese Speech Contest” from the club- to division-levels will be held around January through April as in previous years.
These four contests at the district-level will be held during the Annual Conference scheduled for mid-May.
Improving our evaluation skills is an important component of the value of Toastmasters meetings. We hope that contestants and viewers from many clubs will participate and make it a great opportunity to hone their skills while having fun.
Information about the contest will be coordinated by the area directors in your Area.
I’m Atsuhiko Nakayasu. I’m serving as Club Growth Director for this term. Look forward to serving you.
My job is to build, grow and retain clubs. However, the members who are the centers of clubs have been decreasing for the last 2 years due to the spread of COVID. On the other hand, there has been an increasing number of members attending meetings across regions and borders.I would like to work on grasping the comprehensive issues surrounding District 76 as well as meeting the needs of this new trend in the next few months. The following is the announcement of survey and campaign from my end.
