Each year, Toastmasters districts provide two rounds of Club Officer Training (COT), one in the summer and one in the winter.  For your club to earn Distinguished Club Program (DCP) Goal #9, four or more officers must attend a summer COT event, and four or more officers must attend a winter COT event.  The most effective clubs get all seven (7) club officers trained during both sessions. The two sessions have different objectives.

Round One: Toastmasters Summer Officer Training -June through August

The Summer COT is focused on helping you quickly immerse yourself in your new leadership role. 

  1. Save your time learning and becoming effective in your new role. 
  2. Provide better service to your club.

Round Two: Toastmasters Winter Officer Training – November through February

The Winter COT is focused on club leaders sharing their experiences and ideas.

  1. Learn ideas to help you become even more effective. 
  2. Help other clubs by what you have learned about your role.

All District 53 COT sessions are held online via Zoom.  The Zoom link is provided in your registration confirmation and reminder emails.  You must attend at least 80% (120 minutes) of any 2.5 hour COT event to receive training credit.  Training time may not be accumulated across multiple events.

  1. Register for any District 53 Club Officer Training event.
  2. Review your role in the Club Leadership Handbook.
  3. View the Report of Trained Officers for all clubs.
