Toastmasters Leadership Institute

What is TLI

It’s the Toastmasters Leadership Institute, where Toastmasters from across the district come together to network, share ideas, and be inspired. It’s where newly-elected club officers receive training on how to best serve their clubs. And it’s where any Toastmaster can expand skill sets as a communicator and a leader with additional educational sessions. TLI is not only for the current club leaders — it is for anyone who may be interested in becoming a club officer in the future or those club members who just want to learn more about our wonderful organization!

All districts rely on club officers to conduct the Toastmasters program and keep their clubs healthy and successful. If clubs are to be successful, Club Officers need knowledge and tools, which are provided through training. Trained club officers can result in more satisfied members, more exciting club meetings, more new members, more Distinguished Clubs and more Distinguished Districts.

Who Should Attend

Every Toastmaster can benefit from attending a Toastmasters Leadership Institute! Even if you’re not serving as a club officer this term, “electives” are being offered that cover a variety of topics you’re sure to find of interest. Regardless of whether you’re a club officer, you are welcome to attend, join in the fun, and meet the leaders and future leaders of your district.In order to receive Distinguished Club Program (DCP) credit each club must have a minimum of 4 officers present.  Clubs that have all seven officers present will receive a $50 Toastmasters gift certificate during the 2016-2017 Toastmaster year. Members of the clubs are welcome to attend the event but the clubs only get credit for officer attendance.  Additionally, officers must attend the event in its entirety to receive credit

When is TLI

Districts must conduct club officer training two times per Toastmaster year:

  • The first training must occur between June 1 and August 31, when officer being their term.
  • The second training must occur between December 1 and February 28 (or 29)
