Leadership Training Summer 2019

Leadership Training
Leadership Training is open to all Toastmasters. It is a great opportunity to experience why Toastmasters is #WhereLeadersAreMade

Toastmasters from across District 42 come together to learn, share ideas, network, and be inspired in these education sessions. It is here that newly elected club officers receive training on how to best serve their club members. And it’s where any Toastmaster can expand skill sets as a communicator and a leader with additional educational session

These training sessions are open to all D42 members:

  • looking to grow their leadership skills
  • interested in becoming a club officer in the future (a requirement for obtaining the Distinguished Toastmaster designation)
  • who want to learn more about the Toastmaster organization

Attend the training day, time, or location that works best for you!

Clubs with officers attending training receive credit toward the training goal in the Distinguished Club Program.
