Toastmasters Leadership Institute (TLI)

What is TLI?

Toastmasters Leadership Institute is district training offered twice per year, summer and winter. The main purpose of TLI is to train Toastmasters officers, educate, and inspire.  Our carefully selected facilitators are knowledgeable and helpful. 

Everyone from members, club officers, area and division directors are encouraged to attend.

Toastmasters International recommends at least four Club Officers attend this Officer Training every six months and offers one Distinguished Club Program (DCP) point toward a club earning Distinguished status or better each Toastmaster year. District 11 encourages our clubs to have all seven officers trained.

Training Requirements

Dear District 11 Toastmasters,

On behalf of the current and upcoming District Trio, we are thrilled to welcome all 2024-2025 Officers into their new roles. As you step into your positions as District Directors, Area Directors, or Club Officers, we want to remind you of the essential requirement to attend Club Officer Training.

Participating in this training not only earns your club credit toward the Distinguished Club Program and qualifies you for the new Magnificent 7 of 7 awards, but more importantly, it equips you with the skills and ideas to create an exceptional Toastmasters Club.

This year, we have designed a unique training experience. We have carefully selected experienced Toastmasters from the Leadership Outreach Team (LOT) and other distinguished members across our states. These experts will provide insights and guidance to help you make the most of your year and enhance your club experience.

Our revamped Club Officer Training will be divided into four comprehensive parts:

  1. A fresh look at the Distinguished Club Program.
  2. Innovative strategies to expand our reach using readily available Internet tools.
  3. Role-specific sessions where officers can learn from seasoned individuals and network with peers.
  4. A panel discussion to address your questions and share advice, along with an outline of new programs and ideas for the upcoming year.

You can attend the training in-person at either of the following locations:

  • Indianapolis, Indiana: June 22nd, 2024, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm at Faith Presbyterian Church (8170 Hague Rd, Indianapolis, IN 46256).
  • Lafayette, Indiana: July 6th, 2024, from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm at Tippecanoe Arts Federation (638 North St, Lafayette IN 47901).

Be the first to bring these exciting announcements and ideas back to your club, setting the stage for an amazing era of growth and success.
