Round One: Toastmasters Leadership Institute – June through August

TLI sessions are focused on helping you quickly immerse yourself in your new leadership role. There are typically four to five dates with the same content at various locations across the District. You only need to attend one summer TLI session. The deadline for all TLI sessions is August 31.

Round Two: Toastmasters Leadership Exchange – November through February

TLE sessions are focused on club leaders sharing their experiences and ideas to help others benefit from what you are learning about your role. Typically, each division schedules its own dates. You only need to attend one winter TLE session. The deadline for TLE sessions is February 28.

For clubs to earn DCP point number 9, four (or more) officers must attend summer TLI training, and four (or more) officers must attend winter TLE training.

Please note: Each training event is 3 hours in duration. To qualify as having attended, you must have been present during no less than 75% (135 minutes) of a single training event. You may not accumulate attendance over multiple events to qualify.

Additional COT Opportunities in Other Districts

There are no additional Club Officer Training events scheduled in District 53.  But it’s not too late – you can still attend a COT in another district and get training credit for your club.  If you do attend a COT in another district, you must have a District officer from that District confirm your attendance by sending an attendance confirmation to PQD John Hogan at  It’s also a good idea to let us know as well via email to the same address.
