District Leadership Committee (“DLC”)

The District Leadership Committee (DLC) evaluates all candidates for District elected positions and nominates the best candidate(s). The DLC is responsible to find, interview and nominate qualified candidates to lead District 123 forward – both in 2023-24 and in the years to come. It’s an important job, and one which the committee takes seriously.

Why serve as a district leader? There are so many reasons!

  • build your own leadership, team building, and mentorship skills
  • get to know Toastmaster members beyond your own club
  • support growth in members and clubs
  • help others develop their skills
  • practice inter-personal communication skills
  • inspire others to step out of their comfort zone – as you step out of your own!

All nominations are due by 11:59 pm EST February 1, 2023 to [email protected]

Candidates will be advised of their nomination status before March 18, 2023.
