This championship was initially determined in the TCA days by the Club having the highest score in the Club Achievement Plan (CAP). After 5 years with TCA, the trophy passed to the new District 70 in 1971. It continued to be awarded to the top scoring Club in the CAP and its various successors the Distinguished Club Plan (DCP), Club Management Plan (CMP) and finally a Toastmasters International computer generated scoring system in the Distinguished Club Program. In 1999 this program was modified by Toastmasters International to set benchmarks for the achievement of Distinguished Club status, removing the scoring system that previously rated Clubs and produced Top Clubs in the District and the world.
