District Officer Training III

District Officer Training

District Officer Training is for Area Directors, Division Directors, and senior team members only.  You do not have to attend this if you are only a club officer, and it provides no credit to club officers for the Distinguished Club Program.

Today's session from 6:30 to 9:30 pm will consist of two units:

Thriving in the District Recognition Program: Just as clubs have the metrics of the Distinguished Club Program (DCP), District officers have their own metrics for success to be designated as a Distinguished, Select Distinguished, President's Distinguished, or Smedley Distinguished Area, Division or District. We'll talk about what those metrics are, why we're aiming for them, and what we can do on a personal level to help the District achieve these goals locally and regionally, for our own success and the success of others.

Organizing Speech Contests: In order to be a champion, a speaker in the International Contest or one of the other Toastmasters contest cycles (Humorous, Table Topics, Tall Tales, and Evaluation) has to advance from a club contest to an Area Contest, a Division Contest, and a District Contest. In this session, we'll learn how to create a fun and exciting Speech Contest experience for contestants and functionaries alike.
