As an elected club officer, attending training is critical to your club’s success. When club officers are well-trained to perform their duties, club members are better served. This makes the member experience more positive, which leads to a quality club experience and increased member retention. Without properly trained officers, clubs cannot meet members’ needs or introduce the benefits of Toastmasters to others.
Club officer training is held twice a year:
- Round I – June 1 to August 31.
- Round II – December 1 to February 28. Check calendar for training dates.
In Round I training, you will learn about the Distinguished Club Program, Club Central and the responsibilities of your new executive role in meeting members’ needs. Plus you will learn about opportunities to develop your skills as a leader.
Round II training reinforces what you learned in Round I. Officers also benefit from group discussions about challenges you may be encountering and possible solutions.
Your attendance at club officer training will bring your club one step closer to achieving its Distinguished Club (DCP) goals. To earn DCP credit, you must be registered with Toastmasters International as an officer in the role for which you are attending training. A minimum of four officers from your club must attend Round I training and four officers attend Round II training to earn one DCP goal. However clubs should aspire to have all 7 officers attend Round I and Round II training. That’s because clubs where all seven officers are trained enjoy greater success and leadership growth.
Round I – when all 7 officers attend training, each officer will receive a cool 28-ounce aluminum water bottle with a matte black finish.
Round II – when all 7 officers attend training, each officer will receive a silver silver pen and pencil set with the Toastmasters mark imprinted in black on both. Comes in a sturdy case for safe keeping.
Achieve 7/7 in both Rounds and your club will be entered into a draw for a visit by the TRIO – District Director, Program Quality Director and Club Growth Director – bearing food.
