  1. If clubs post events on Meetup, encourage club members to join and RSVP. Low numbers of RSVP's give the impression that no one is attending while an event with several RSVP's will generate more excitement for potential guests. 
  2. The VPPR should monitor each event to welcome guests and respond to comments. 
  3. The VPPR should also update (or immediately inform pr@d101tm.org if posting on the District Meetup site) of event changes (ie cancellations or venue changes). 
  1. Clubs are encouraged to send pictures and brief descriptions of special recognitions/events to pr@d101tm.org to post on our District Facebook page
  2. Members are encouraged to comment on and share posts.
  1. Start a conversation with the District 101 LinkedIn group to spread the word about Toastmasters through your professional network.
