Finding a location to host Club Officer Training and our annual Toastmasters Leadership Institute (TLI) can be a little like reading a Where’s Waldo book. There are a lot of buildings but finding the right one can be tricky. We are actively searching for a suitable venue to accommodate Toastmasters Events. Here is what we are looking for:
Main conference room for 60-100 people
4 to 7 small classroom or meeting rooms for 10-15 people
Technology to accommodate presence over video (Zoom for remote participants)
A built in or removable stage is ideal
Please provide qualified leads only. This means, the facility must be available on November 11, 2023, and/or April 25th thru April 27th, 2024.
Milestones achieved since the new Toastmaster year prove that “United We Succeed” when heading toward our primary District 62 mission: We build new clubs and we support all clubs in achieving excellence.

BUILDING NEW CLUBS
The introduction of new clubs injects fresh vitality into a District as enthusiastic new members eagerly engage in various activities. These new clubs cater to a diverse demographic by offering educations programs on different days and times and adding variety to existing clubs. Moreover, the establishment of new clubs attracts additional volunteers, alleviating the district workload.
The presence of multiple clubs in a specific area enhances annual events, and the increased membership base ensures effective dissemination of information beyond mere word-of-mouth. With a greater number of clubs, we secure more financial resources to develop and enhance our programs, ultimately benefiting a broader audience that can avail themselves of the valuable offerings provided by Toastmasters.

SUPPORTING ALL CLUBS IN REBUILDING
If your club is currently lacking energy or engagement, it is essential that the initiative to improve comes from you as members. However, the district leadership is committed to providing you valuable assistance. Contact your Area Director or your Division Director for helpful assistance.
We offer training twice a year, with multiple opportunities available in the Summer and Fall/Winter. Additionally, upon request, we can assign coaches to assist your club. The highly recommend club-to-club mentoring and coaching is a valuable approach. Furthermore, organizing open houses or area meet and greets can be effective in reaching out to those nearby.
Another suggestion is for your club to consider joining meetups or local chambers of commerce to increase exposure. Everyone takes great joy in celebrating the individual achievements of members and clubs. If you have any questions, the district is here to support you with an Area Director and Division Director.
