The Distinguished Club Program (DCP) is an annual program designed by TI as a measure of club quality. It runs from July 1st through June 30th.  It includes 10 goals that your club should strive to achieve each year.  These are grouped into 4 areas. Education (6 Goals), Membership (2 goals), Training (1 goal), Administration (1Goal).  A qualifying requirement is that the club must either have 20 members or a net growth of at least 5 new members as at June 30th.   If a club earns 5 Goals it is Distinguished, 7 Goals it is Select Distinguished and 9 Goals it is President’s Distinguished – The highest recognition.
