An analysis of District 73 overall at the present time

The Distinguished Club Program (the DCP) is a powerful incentive for Club success. There are 10 Goals for Clubs to aim at, with three award levels – Distinguished with 5 Goals, Select Distinguished with 7 Goals and President’s Distinguished with 9 goals. A Club must have 20 members to be Distinguished. Areas and Divisions have similar awards.The 2 Divisions and 36 Clubs in WA are doing very well, but overall District 73 is not doing well at this point. Unless there is a marked improvement, District 73 will not be Distinguished this year. There will be enough Advanced Communicator Awards, but the Competent Communicator Awards are lagging very badly.

Perth Division is leading the Club DCP awards in District 73

There are 9 Divisions in District 73 (a Division has 4-6 Areas, and each Area has 3-6 Clubs). 3 Divisions have no Clubs which have reached the requirements for Distinguished Club.

However Western Division is leading the Division Speech awards

This is a count of all the Speech Awards for all Clubs in all Divisions

Here is a summary of the Distinguished Clubs in District 73, sorted by Division.

A final comment on the CC count

Each year there is always a strong increase in the CC count in May and June. However, 82 CCs in over 7 months is not a good base to achieve another 122 in less than 5 months. Division and Area Governors need to encourage their Clubs to work to achieve Distinguished status, and particularly to lodge CC applications.

    Good analysis, David, and appropriate for wider distribution. You mentioned in your intro there are 8 Divisions but the table shows 9. Also for SOTT club in Central Division, the numbers are on the wrong line. As this response is about editorial matters you may not want to post it. Mike
