TLI is Toastmasters Leadership Institute. TLI provides training for the entire district. This includes Summer and Winter TLI Club Officer Training.
District 46 also holds “Super Saturday” training with special guest speakers.
Training is open to all Toastmasters members. Every Club Officer should attend in order to effectively fulfill their roles and help get Distinguished Club Program (DCP) credit for their club.
Register online at Officer Training Schedule. Choose the date and location best for you. (Non-officers register as non-officers.) Your will get an email confirmation. Walk-ins/On-site registration open 30 minutes before the start time.
Training is Free to all Toastmasters members.
The full DCP credit (Goal 9) is earned when at least four (4) club officers are trained during both the summer and winter. Half (1/2) DCP credit is earned in the summer, and the other half in the winter. It is District 46’s expectation that at least four (4) club officers are trained during both the summer and winter.
Yes, as long as a scanned copy of the completed TLI Attendance Verification Form (or equivalent) from the other District is emailed to the TLI Registration Chair.
Recording officer training on the Toastmasters International website requires manual input of each officer trained, as Toastmasters has no automated system. Because of this, we only perform infrequent batch updates on the official website during the training period. If you attended training, your club will receive credit.
No, register for one (1) training in the summer and one (1) in the winter. Choose the one (1) officer role on which you would like training. If an officer at more than one (1) club, register as a "Dual" officer. At the training, list all Officer roles and clubs on the TLI Attendance Verification form. Toastmasters International strongly suggests you attend a separate TLI training for the other roles, but this is not required by District 46 for DCP credit. Contact the TLI Registration Chair to ensure accurate reporting.
Co-Officers will count as "one officer trained" toward DCP Goal #9. It is better if you both attend training in the summer and winter to be effective. You and your Co-Officer decide who gets credit for the summer, and who gets credit for the winter. Let your Club President and Club Vice President of Education know.
The Officer Training Schedule will indicate when food is provided at a training. In any event, anyone with food allergies or special dietary needs should bring your own food.
No, District 46 does not provide this option.
Yes, please notify the TLI Registration Chair and Training Host before the training. However, for a club to receive credit for training an officer, the officeholder himself or herself must attend training. Sending a member in place of an officer will not credit the club for training that officer.
Please plan your commute ahead and arrive on time. After all, time management is a Competent Leadership skill. If necessary, contact the TLI Training host for directions.
