you can serve as a District Officer in one of these roles starting
July 1, 2011, contact your current Area or Division Governor.
- Serve as one of the following: Club Coach (successfully coaching a club to Distinguished Club Status within one year) OR Sponsor for a
club in the formative stages up to the point of Chartering, OR Mentor for a new club for the first 6 months after Chartering. Each of these
roles can be very challenging. You will need to dedicate from 6 months to up to 2 years in one of these roles.
- Complete a High Performance Leadership Project (HPL). You can serve as an Area Governor or District Governor AS your HPL
project. You can also serve as a Club Coach/Mentor/or Sponsor as your HPL project. You will work with a Guidance Committee over the
course of your HPL project and make 2 speeches to your home club as you progress. If you choose to complete another project as
your HPL, you will still need to plan, execute, report, track, and evaluate progress on your HPL journey.
Each of these milestones takes time and advance planning. The sooner you start working on them, the less pressure you will feel. Do not
let these requirements of the Advanced Leader Silver Award be the speed bump in your road to a DTM! Contact Betty Chavira,
email@example.com, if you would like to serve as a club coach.
