Checklist to Achieve DTM in the Legacy Program

Just to keep focus and ensure that I'm on the track towards my application for my first DTM award, I'm writing this post. I've documented the checklist towards my DTM in the legacy program and ticked off marks on those requirements that were completed. I've added as well the supporting documentation or references.

Shown below is a section of the back page of the Advanced Leader/ Distinguished Toastmaster Awards Application Form. The back page shows the application sections for the ALS (Advanced Leader Silver) norm which is a prerequisite for the DTM (Distinguished Toastmaster) norm.

Club Mentor Certificate Received

Toastmasters certificate in the mail! Today, I got the paper certificate for Club Mentor. This is for getting credit in mentoring the UPS Alabang Toastmaster Club.

Initially, I didn't even think that there would be a certificate. I do know that there would be credit though.
