The District is beginning to finalise the leadership team for the next 12 months and we need you to consider helping.
We are currently looking for members of District 69 who are interested in expanding their leadership journey and take on the role of area director.
As area director, you serve as the direct liaison between the district and the clubs. Area directors conduct club visits twice a year within their respective areas to understand and support club needs. In turn, these visits help district leaders understand how to support and meet the needs of each club. It is important that area directors have the support they need to serve clubs. The success of the district depends on it.
As area director, you are responsible for leading your area by serving the needs of clubs. In order to understand clubs’ needs, the area director contacts club presidents monthly to discuss their performance in the Distinguished Club Program. The area director also discusses district training and other district events with the area clubs. As area director, you follow up on items identified during previous contact with club presidents.
The area director is the area council chair and holds at least two area council meetings each year. At area council meetings, the area director discusses each club’s plans and goals in the Distinguished Club Program and reviews attendance at club leader training.
Why be an Area Director?
People say that the role of the area director is the best role in Toastmasters. As area director, you will get the opportunity to visit other clubs on a regular basis. This allows you to see what others clubs have to offer and also what you can offer them. The skills you learn as an area director allow you to better yourself as a leader and communicator.
