Updated Summer Club Officer Training (TLI) Results

District 36’s summer Toastmaster Leadership Institute (TLI) Club Officer training is complete.   Over 950 club officers were trained in District 36 or neighboring Districts.   165 clubs (about 80 percent) had 4 or more officers trained in the summer and are still eligible to earn DCP goal #9, if they can once again have 4 or more officers trained during the upcoming December-February Winter TLI season.  Updated (with changes through September 24) Summer TLI Results are now available for club review – please bring to our attention any mistakes, with ample supporting details, at tli@district36.org.   Please attend TLI again in December-February to refresh and expand your knowledge, while also fulfilling your responsibility to your fellow club members by helping lead your club to success and hopefully Distinguished status.
