District Leadership

Congratulations, District 36!

2014-2015 District Governor Yining Xie, LGET John Kinsman, and LGM Arthur Sidney are excited to be able to share their enthusiasm with you about how much you achieved during the past year!  Read their letter here – and keep your eyes on all of our Hall of Fame Pages as everything gets counted.  WOW!

NEW TLI EVENT: Two officer training sessions at same location in one day!  If the morning isn’t perfect, then try the afternoon!  U.S. Pharmacopeia in Rockvillle MD, Saturday July 25.

Summer TLI is definitely here!

The first Toastmasters Leadership Institute (TLI) – Club Officer training session – for the 2015-2016 Toastmasters year was held on Saturday, June 27, and more events are being planned.  Trained club officers are the best predictor of club success, and why not ramp up your own Toastmasters experience, learn and refresh, and make new friends at TLI!

Visit the District 36 TLI page for more information and to see the growing list of all of the TLI events in our vicinity.

Supporting our District 36 Clubs in Achieving their Excellence

We plan to highlight our clubs in District 36 on the District website to showcase the strengths and unique characteristics of those featured clubs.  The purpose is to promote our clubs and membership growth in our District.  All of the articles for these clubs will be retained on the Supporting Clubs in Achieving their Excellence page under the Clubs tab.  If you would like to submit your club for consideration, please send the proposed article to our Public Relations Manager, Scott Chen: scott.chen@district36.org.

Some guidelines for submission are:

  • Highlight what is unique about the club and what makes the club successful.
  • Include the club name, location, time of meeting, website and DCP status, if appropriate.
  • Do not mention individual toastmasters by name, except for a point of contact.
  • Send a pdf flyer if you want that included.
