Presidents need to assign your club’s proxy.
A club can assign their proxy in one of three ways:
1. If a member of the club will be attending the Annual Business
Meeting, they may carry the club’s vote.
2. If no one from the club is attending the Annual Business Meeting,
the club may designate the District Governor as the club’s proxyholder. The District Governor will ensure the club’s vote is cast
at the meeting.
3. If no one from the club is attending the Annual Business Meeting,
the club may choose as its proxyholder an active Toastmaster from another club who is planning to attend.
Whichever of these 3 ways that you wish to exercise your club’s vote, you need to:
Click on the Club Officer tab
Enter your Club number and club password
or log on to your personal profile using your Member ID
Select the option at the bottom of the menu “Club Proxy/Delegate Assignment”
Follow the prompts to submit your club’s proxy assignment.
(Club presidents can obtain member ID numbers by accessing their membership roster on the Toastmasters International Web site’s club business section.
You can also find your member ID number on the address portion of your Toastmaster magazine).

On completion, prior to the deadline, the Area Governor should complete the online Area Visit form ensuring they tick the relevant boxes, to inform Division leaders of the outcomes.
