Distinguished District Results - 1974 - 2010
See the results of the Distinguished District Program for the time period
from 1974 to 2010. Note that prior to 1977, there were more requirements to
achieve Distinguished Status (e.g. you were required to have a 40 member
club). The tables for each Region include the Districts across the top and the
years down the left side. Bold print denotes a Distinguished district (P for PDD, S for SDD, D for DD). The number is the final ranking.
|NOTE: This reporting
is strictly a listing of the final rankings on the TAR report and not
the ranking of the Distinguished clubs. Therefore, in some years
districts are ranked higher but are not identified as Distinguished. The
ranking TI might have given would be the ranking of those achieving
Distinguished District status. My listing, again, only lists the final
numerical ranking of the
In 2010, the last year with the
original 8 regionals and the Overseas were reported. Starting next year, I'll
have an option on this page for the pre-2011 reports and the 2011 and later
reports. The 2nd option will reflect the 14 regions that make up Toastmasters.

1996 District 51 is ranked #5, after a great year of club and member
growth. However, because they did not achieve their CTM goal, they are not
recognized as PDD. Therefore, all the districts ranked below them moved up in
the recognition categories (i.e. the 13th ranked district is SDD.) This is why
my numbers do not, perhaps, match your recognition level.
