Leadership is the single greatest factor in the success of  a team or organization.  To help each club and its leadership succeed, District 6 provides training sessions twice a year:

  • Officer Training Round 1: June 1 – August 31

If you are a club officer, please plan to attend a training session in each round.  Our team is committed to helping you be successful in your role, helping your club be successful in serving members.

Reference Materials for Club Officers

Hosting a Training Session (for 2017-2018 Certified Trainers)

If you are hosting or coordinating a training event, please read the Calendar Request Instructions and submit your event using the Calendar Request Form (or click the ‘+Post Your Event‘ button below). The calendar on this page shows scheduled club officer training events.

  • Officer Training Round 1: June 1 – August 31
  • Officer Training Round 2: December 1 – February 28

Want to become a certified trainer for the 2017-2018 program year?

The best way to certify as a trainer is to attend a Train-the-Trainer session at the June 17th DEC meeting (Train-the-Trainer starts at 1:00 pm).  If you cannot attend a Train-the-Trainer session, you can still be certified to train by contacting the Program Quality Director and following the approval process.

Trainers conducting the overall session must be certified.  Each club officer training session must be led/organized by a certified trainer.  Members assisting a training session don’t need to be certified as long as a certified trainer is present and takes responsibility for the quality of the session.
