Our Leadership Committee wanted to get your leadership juices flowing and inform you well ahead of time on what you need to do.

Every year, District 35 looks for a new set of servant leaders to take us further on our Toastmaster journey and assure the continued success of District 35.

We always need new ideas, new visions, new inspirations. We need you. For all nominations and nomination questions, please email our Leadership Chair Andy Little at andynlittle@gmail.com.

The document District Leader Qualifications and Responsibilities (PDF) from Toastmasters International is the first step is to decide how you wish to serve your fellow Toastmasters. It gives you an overview of each district officer role.

The document District Leader Competencies describes the expected skills, knowledge, and characteristics of district officers.

Another great resource is current and past district officers. They can tell you all about the office you’re interested in pursuing and you might even find a mentor for your term in office. If you don’t know a current district officer, contact your District Director and they’ll connect you with someone near you.

After you select an office, it’s time to submit the proper forms;

All Candidates can Declare Their Intent to Run from November 1, 2019 through January 30, 2020.
