Red River Toastmasters Club’s Distinguished Toastmaster, Doug Weeks was recently named the Lieutenant Governor of Marketing for District 16 which encompasses the entire State of Oklahoma.
As the Lieutenant Governor of Marketing, Doug is responsible for all aspects of marketing, club-building, and member-and-club retention efforts within the district. This includes having an overall marketing strategy for the district, developing outreach and retention efforts with existing community and corporate clubs and penetrating new markets. Additionally, the Lieutenant Governor of Marketing provides support to challenged clubs and helps them become distinguished.
Doug’s vision for District 16 includes increasing membership from over 3,400 to 5,000 members statewide and establishing 5 new clubs in the state. Doug plans to continue focusing on the value of Toastmasters, and ultimately spread the word that membership in Toastmasters can be one of the best investments a person can make. The low cost club dues make Toastmasters one of the most cost-effective skill building tools available anywhere. Furthermore, Doug will also focus on making District 16 and Toastmasters more visible on social media.
