Thank you for standing up to serve as a club officer for 2020-2021.
Very many thanks if you have already attended your Club Officer Training. Here is a little something to inspire your club to have all seven officers trained at a District sponsored Cub Officer Training (COT) event by the end of August. I am aware that three clubs have achieved this already and more are in the pipeline. Congratulations.
Why bother? What’s in it for me? I found my first COT to be very counter intuitive as I went in the door reluctantly and came away thrilling in the networking, the brainstorming and for the first-time seeing Toastmasters not about me, but about ‘we’. There is also direct relationship between club quality and member satisfaction and retention. You, as a Club officer, are the front line in delivering the Club Mission:
We provide a supportive and positive learning experience in which members are empowered to develop communication and leadership skills, resulting in greater self-confidence and personal growth.
Thus, well trained your time will result in more exciting meetings, more satisfied members, more new members, and a more distinguished club. That is something to be proud of.
Where to get training? Whilst we are online the world is your oyster! District 71 have two Divisions offering Training see here. We are researching a corporate club training offer to improve engagement. Other Districts are also offering training, these are indicative of offers remaining out there:
District 36 (Washington DC) August 16th 6:30pm (BST) or 22nd 1:30pm (BST) Click Here for details
Please drop me a line if you are training in other Districts and I will chase up validation info. Daniel Sandars firstname.lastname@example.org
