Toastmasters Leadership Institute (TLI)

2017-2018 Winter TLI Sessions - Now in Session !

Toastmasters Leadership Institute is a great opportunity for you to ramp up your own Toastmasters experience, learn and refresh, network and make new acquaintances and friends. Trained club officers are the best predictor of club success. Here are some other reasons to participate:

  • Free training on the nuts and bolts of your respective officer roles
  • Training helps your club meet Goal #9 of the Distinguished Club Program

  • District Bookstore to buy club merchandise and save on shipping costs from Headquarters

The Summer Season of Toastmaster Leadership Institute (TLI) club officer training runs from June 2017 through August 31, 2017. Lots of TLI events are being scheduled in nearby Washington, Maryland, and Virginia, so everyone is certain to find at least one that is perfectly convenient to them.

Remember, club officers must attend one two-hour session for their specific club officer role starting July 1, 2017. If you attend a session outside of District 36, Please make certain that you identify yourself, your club office, your club, and your District (ours is District 36) wherever you take your training.

Besides “core training,” a lot of general-interest courses will be offered on such topics as effective evaluations, spice up your meetings with themes, how to run a club contest, and so on – so TLI events are valuable for everyone, not just the club officers!

Here are the already-scheduled TLI events. We’ll keep this list as up-to-date as possible.
