Nominating a District Leader
The first step is to decide how you wish to serve your fellow Toastmasters.
The District Leader Qualifications and Responsibilities document from Toastmasters International is a good starting place. You will get a quick overview of each District Leader role’s responsibilities and qualifications
A quick review of the District Leader Competencies document can give you an insight into the expected skills, knowledge, and characteristics of a District Leader. Another great resource is District Leadership Handbook. This will give you information on the district structure, leadership roles, and much more.
After you have selected a District Leader office, it’s time to get nominated.
You can nominate any active Toastmaster in good standing in our district including yourself by using the District Leader Nomination Form.
