District 13 Winter TLI

Dear District 13 Members,

Winter TLI is Saturday January 10, 2015 at the Westmoreland County Community College Main Campus – Youngwood, PA. Registration is 7:45 am – 8:15 am and Opening Remarks/Welcome at 8:30 am (Times may be subject to change).

What is TLI?

It’s the Toastmasters Leadership Institute, where Toastmasters from across the district come together to network, share ideas, and be inspired. It’s where newly-elected club officers receive training on how to best serve their clubs. And it’s where any Toastmaster can expand skill sets as a communicator and a leader with additional educational sessions. TLI is not only for the current club leaders — it is for anyone who may be interested in becoming a club officer in the future or those club members who just want to learn more about our wonderful organization!

Who Should Attend

Every Toastmaster can benefit from attending a Toastmasters Leadership Institute! Regardless of whether you’re a club officer, you are welcome to attend, join in the fun, and meet the leaders and future leaders of your district. A club must have 4 officers trained at both the summer and winter TLIs to achieve a DCP (Distinguished Club Program) goal 9.

HPL Opportunities

High Performance Leadership (HPL) is a five-project program that offers instruction and practice in such vital leadership skills and activities as developing a mission and vision, goal-setting and planning, identifying values and building a team. Your HPL project is one of the requirements that’s needed to complete your Advanced Leader Silver educational award. There are HPL opportunities in various coordination of TLI. Contact James Gurksnis, ACB, CL, Winter TLI Chair at wintertlichair@d13tm.com for more information.
