This offers a great opportunity for everybody to try something new: Club members can become club officers and club officers can take a different office or apply for a District assignment.
This is also an opportunity for the current officers to apply their leadership in a new way: Find successors and show them the ropes, be a mentor to them, be a role model.
By encouraging your clubs' members to try something new, to step outside of their comfort zone, and by supporting them when they take that challenge, you help them grow!
Let's build leaders who want to get involved, have the courage to act, and care for others by running the clubs!
The time to act is now:
- Start immediately by encouraging you clubs to hold club elections in May.
- Ask your clubs to submit the new club officers list online right after the elections at https://ecommerce.toastmasters.org/timssnet/login/tnt_login.cfm
- Ensure that all of your clubs' members know about TLI (Toastmasters Leadership Institute), the best chance for every Toastmaster, but especially for officers, to learn about leadership. This year, TLI will take place on 3 different dates in 3 different places :
6/9 Hudson NY
6/30 Poughkeepsie NY
7/14 Chicopee MA
Further details will be published towards the end of the month at http://www.district53toastmasters.org/
I hope to see all of your clubs' officers at TLI!
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
Thank you for all you're doing for your clubs!

Lt.Governor - Marketing, District 53
