Dear District 39 Leaders and Members,
Happy New (Toastmasters) Year!
Wes, Kristi and I are very excited the many opportunities this year holds – especially in the area of Club Officer Training and Club Enrichment Sessions. Many of you are anxious to know what is different about this year’s training model and I hope this message will clarify what we hope to accomplish this year and why.
We want District 39 club officers to have the best start possible for their leadership term. We truly believe that the best way for clubs to be successful is to have strong leadership. We all know that the best way to create strong leadership is to provide our leaders with thorough training during our training events.
This year, we are focusing on high-quality, consistent training throughout the District. We will be using standardized materials, so each person throughout the District receives the same information. Every training will include the following sessions:
Club Officer Training – specific to each Officer Role
Understanding the Distinguished Club Program (DCP) and Club Success Plan to manage club goals to success
Getting into and navigating through Pathways
To receive credit for attending training, officers must attend the entire training which will be a minimum of 4 hours and includes all of the sessions mentioned above. Check out the District 39 Calendar for available dates!
We want each officer to feel informed, confident, motivated, supported, and enthusiastic. Ready to take on their new officer term knowing “I CAN DO THIS!!”
With your help we can grow our district with informed members and officers and quality clubs.
Let’s continue the conversation…Feel free to call me if you have any questions or concerns.
I look forward seeing you at our next training!
District 39 Director
