Toastmasters Leadership Institute (TLI)
The TLI was held on Saturday, January 16, 2021. We hope you were able to attend. Past International Director, and Distinguished Toastmaster, Jim Kohli presented a fantastic keynote on membership retention. His Q&A session that followed shed light on important matters, and spread valuable ideas. A recording of the keynote and Q&A will be made available in the coming days.
Please note that in addition to the TLI, some additional training may be required for club officers to receive training credit that counts toward your club’s DCP goals. Please read Club Officer Training below for more details, and contact us with any questions.
About the TLI & Club Officer Training
The District is trying something new this year. We want to best support club officers by offering a choice in the training that will bring them the most benefit. For example, a new officer may benefit from focusing on the basic roles and responsibilities, while an experienced club officer may find a session on “Creating the Best Club Climate” to be more beneficial.
For this reason, the TLI this January was shortened from the typical 5 hour event, to just 3, and included a timely Keynote on Membership Retention. To complete training, officers should attend two additional sessions within the district’s Leadership Lab, which are being held separately from the TLI. Only Leadership Labs held between November 1, 2020 and February 28, 2021 will count toward this.
If you missed the TLI, you should attend any club officer training offered by your Division. Check with your Club President, or Area Director.
