Promote the Toastmasters promise
Congratulations on your election to serve as a club officer for 2020-2021! We are thrilled to be working together.
Effective training for club officers is one of the most critical parts of delivering our mission to our members. Without properly trained officers, clubs cannot meet members’ needs or introduce the benefits of Toastmasters to others. Club officer training is also vital means to leadership development.
This year how District 71 delivers training has changed as we prevail over the challenges of the novel Coronavirus. This year we are offered for, the first time, a District wide Club Officer Training (COT) on the 4th of July and then to provide flexibility and choice a set of officer training sessions will be held that are coordinated by our twelve Division Directors and their Areas.
Upcoming Club Officer Training
- 09:15-13:00 Thursday August 13th, led by Paul O’Mahony, Division A Director and Sean Dwan, Division B Director; Email Paul
- Saturday August 15th, led by Rob Partridge, Division F Director, Email Rob
What to expect
Club Officers deliver the Toastmasters International 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”
We will help you deliver that by addressing three key questions:
- What is my role?
- Why is my role important?
- How can I do my role well -what are the best practices?
We are including generous facilitation activities and brainstorming because in the year ahead members, officers, and their clubs face uncertainty around roles and functions and need innovative thinking and idea.
