Make It An Event! says Club Growth Director, Vicky Nann is the key to have a successful Open House and attract visitors. Club officer roles were also reviewed in breakout sessions. There was also an informative presentation on our upcoming program Pathways presented by District 10 Ambassador Deonna Taylor.

Tim Juda also explains the importance of Division and Area Director Roles. If you need to complete your district service requirements to obtain your DTM, you should consider signing up for one of these important roles soon. You will need one year of service to complete this requirement.

The District would also like to thank Doug Thiessen for building our new remote control timing lights that debuted at our Judge’s Training event hosted by District Director, Dave Wiley.

  1. One after the other, great ideas and information about club growth and development dominated the morning session of training. Members of my club certainly left inspired to improve our social media presence and to attract new members. Ed Haller’s presentation about Speechcraft was fantastic, but I don’t see it among the downloads. Will this be made available to members?
