Welcome to our website! This site was built to explain the features and benefits of a new Toastmaster’s club scheduling software we’ve spend the past year building expressly to make the scheduling, open role filling, absence handling affair easier for both the VP-Education as well as each week’s Toastmaster (and member’s too!).
I don’t know how it goes at your club, but in the club’s I’m in we may have as much as 25% – 50% change in the schedule each week due to member’s work commitments, travel schedule, illness, etc. The resulting flurry of emails between role assignees, their replacements, the VP-Education, the Toastmaster, etc. can be time consuming and tedious.
We designed TMClubSchedule to hopefully reduce or eliminate some of these challenges by putting the schedule online for everyone to see, by automating the email to notify members when a new schedule is produced, by allowing members to Accept of Decline their assigned role on their own without involving the VP-Education or Toastmaster (optional, at the discretion of the Schedule Admin), to post their own absences and have them be factored into each new schedule, etc.
The idea was to make the scheduling process as much a self-service activity as possible for each club. There are other features that we think make the process easier, but the bottom line is that we’re looking for a way to make the process easier for everyone, including the members themselves.
I’ll post details about the tool here every week, or more often if time allows, but feel free to read the documentation for more details about how TMClubSchedule works. And of course, feel free to email me anytime at Mike@TMClubSchedule.com!
