District 26 - Serving Colorado, Wyoming and western Nebraska

Toastmasters Leadership Institute

Winter/Spring 2021 TLIs and Club Officer Trainings have concluded.


Congratulations on becoming a newly elected officer for your Toastmasters club. This is indeed an exciting and very rewarding journey. Here is an opportunity for you learn more about your particular office, as well as learn from very knowledgeable Toastmasters colleagues. We offer four major Toastmasters Leadership Institutes (TLIs) to train club officers. However, the reality is that all club officers cannot attend them, so we also offer smaller Club Officer Trainings (COTs). Though the training is specific to club officers, all Toastmasters are invited to attend to learn about the various roles. The club officer training periods are:
  • Period 1: June 1 – August 31
  • Period 2: November 1 – February 28 (or 29)
  • At least four officers must be trained each period to earn DCP goal #9 credit.

TLI sessions included training for all club officers to receive credit toward goal #9 in the Distinguished Club Program. If you would like more information any D26 events, including dates, times and locations for TLIs and COTs, please visit the D26 calendar at

After attending a TLI, please fill out our evaluation:

Tips for Virtual TLI

  • Club Officers, please read your officer manual prior to attending classes. Download a copy from the Toastmasters International Website.
  • Be sure to pre-register. Make sure you provide your club number and, if applicable, your district number. If you hold the same position in multiple clubs, be sure to indicate that on the online registration form.
  • Plan to join early to prepare for the virtual training and address any possible technical issues prior to the start of the meeting.
  • Make sure you are in a quiet space without interruptions and/or background noise.
  • Be an active listener.
  • Share your experiences and participate in class discussions.
  • Encourage other officers to attend.
