The success of a club and its members depend on how well club officers execute their responsibilities. Knowing what to do and how to do it is paramount to every leader’s success.
By providing leadership and support, club officers foster a positive environment that’s conducive to members’ personal and professional growth, allowing them to achieve their personal Toastmasters education goals. To help prepare you for your role, District 56 offers training.

Club leaders are best served by consistent, professional training that supports the brand, enhances member experience, and helps them grow as leaders. The materials provided by Toastmasters International are the standard of quality and consistency that should make up the core of district-sponsored club officer training. It teaches club officers the traits of a healthy team, how to identify behavioral styles and how to build trust.
Though not all topics must be covered in each round of club officer training, it will always include the Club Officer Role Breakouts. The Training Club Leaders guide is used for planning and presenting Club Officer Training.
