District 26 - Serving Colorado, Wyoming and western Nebraska

Toastmasters Leadership Institute

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.

Details on upcoming trainings are posted below.

If you would like more information any D26 evnts, including dates, times and locations for TLIs and COTs, please visit the D26 calendar at . If you are a district officer planning a TLI and/or COT, 2019-2020 D26 COT Guidelines.
