By Robi Ley, DTM, Immediate Past District Director, District Leadership Chair
You’re ready. I know you are. Ready for what? Ready for your next step. That step up and out to District Leadership.
Wait. What? Me? District leadership?
Yes, you. It’s time.
Even though it’s only October, now is the time to begin planning for your next step in your personal and professional development. There are two upcoming opportunities for you to learn more about the leadership areas available to you. The first is during our 2nd Annual Summit. We will have a Leadership Panel made up of current and past district leaders who can answer your questions and give insights into the roles they’ve held. More details for the second one will be available soon.
Very soon, the district will be asking people to submit nominations for the 2020-2021 elected district officer positions; Division Director, Club Growth Director, Program Quality Director, and District Director. Anyone who wishes may submit their own name, or someone else’s name if they feel that person is qualified to serve. The District Leadership Committee will consider all nominations for all positions. Interviews will be held, and all the best qualified candidates will be put forward. It doesn’t mean that every single nomination will be put forward, but it does mean there can be more than one person nominated for each role.
