Summer Leadership Institute Tomorrow!

District 66 Toastmasters will hold its Summer Leadership Institute tomorrow!

This will be the first of two rounds of training offered by the District for incoming club officers, although all District 66 Toastmasters are invited and encouraged to attend.   The second round will be held on July 23.

For the first time, the training will be conducted simultaneously at three different Virginia locations: Salem, Glen Allen and  Virginia Beach.

The sessions will begin with a brief plenary session where all three locations will be connected via video conference.

After the plenary session, we will break out into separate training sessions.  These will include the standard officer training session plus new material.  This will be especially useful for members who may have already attended officer training in the past and would like to learn something new.

The offerings include:

  • Always Bring you’re A-Game – Part I (the Mechanics of a Great Meeting)
  • Always Bring you’re A-Game – Part II (planning and preparation are the key)
  • Evaluate to Motivate
  • Finding New Members for Your Club
  • Going Beyond Your Club (opportunities for Leadership growth)
  • Promoting Your Club with Websites and Social Media
  • Strategies for Coaching Clubs
  • The Distinguished Club Program
  • The Toastmasters Educational Program
  • When You Are the Secretary
  • When You Are the Sergeant at Arms
  • When You Are the Treasurer
  • When You Are the Vice-President Membership
  • When You Are the Vice-President Public Relations

As usual, each club which sends at least four of its new officers to this training will earn credit towards the Distinguished Club Program, but it’s really worthwhile for any Toastmaster to attend and participate.

As an incoming Area Governor, this will be an opportunity to meet the officers for the clubs in my Area in person, as well as to network with other Toastmasters.  Plus, I’ll be helping to supply the refreshments.

If you’re a Toastmaster in the area, I hope to see you there!
