Nominations Now Being Accepted for 2015-2016 Top District Leadership Posts
February 13, 2015

The annual search for District 36’s next generation of leaders is now officially underway. Elections will be held during the Business Meeting at the District 36 Spring Conference on Saturday, May 16. Past District Governor Barry Piatt, DTM, is chairing the Nominations Committee.

Most of the new positions will have new titles, as Toastmasters International continues to revitalize its leadership and educational program. For example, the title “District Director” will replace “District Governor,” “Program Quality Director” and “Club Growth Director” will replace the two Lieutenant Governor titles, and “Division Director” will replace “Division Governor.” According to Toastmaster Piatt, “This is an opportunity for emerging leaders not only to grow as leaders, but also to make a little history! This set of officers will be the first to wear the new, more modern up-to-date and business-like titles.”
