What are the appointed District Leader/Officer positions?
Area Directors (52 Areas currently – Nevada & California ); 2 Finance Managers- Nevada & California; 2 Administration Managers – Nevada & California; and 2 Public Relations Manager – Nevada & California. There may be more appointed officers, including Logistics Manager, at the discretion of the incoming District Directors.
Please Note: Candidates for the above appointed positions must also submit the applications, including the Officer Agreement & Release form.
Which positions receive educational credit for serving?
Traditionally, any district officer position which has the word Director or Manager in the title [for example: Area Director, Finance Manager (except Logistics Manager)] would receive credit towards their Advanced Leader Silver award after serving 1 year as a district officer. However, because the grace period for earning credit for the traditional education program award ends on June 30, 2020, there are specific Toastmasters International rules for educational credit.
Members who serve as a club or district leader through June 30, 2020, may receive an exception to use this as credit toward a traditional education program award that is also submitted on June 30, 2020. The role must be the final requirement for the award to receive recognition and these exceptions will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Please be aware that members who use the role to complete an award such as ALB or ALS in the traditional program will not be able to transfer the work to an award in Pathways.
Members who are seeking a DTM, but are unable to complete all requirements by June 30, 2020 may be better served by applying their club and district leadership roles to a Distinguished Toastmaster award in Pathways. Please contact Educationawards@toastmasters.org with any questions about your best course of action.
What are the eligibility requirements for positions which receive educational credit?
