Happenings

District 101 holds various events throughout the Toastmasters year to provide opportunities for our members to develop communication and leadership skills, and to offer support and training so we can be successful. Check out the calendar to find more details about currently scheduled events.

  • Contests are a regular part of the Toastmasters program and provide opportunities for members to challenge their communication and leadership skills, receiving recognition for their success, both inside and outside the club environment.
  • Club Officer Training (COT) seasons occur twice per year to prepare club officers for their role and help them be successful. They also provide opportunities of officers to network with their peers throughout the district.
  • A Toastmasters Leadership Institute (or TLI) includes a COT and has additional educational opportunities of interest to all Toastmasters members, such as workshops on aspects of communication or leadership relevant to Toastmasters and non-Toastmasters alike.
  • District 101 sponsors two conferences each year: one in the Fall and one in the Spring. They include the culmination of the district-wide speech contests, educational workshops and presentations, and a keynote address by a professional speaker. An important element of the district conference is the semi-annual District Council Meeting.
  • GREAT Events are educational workshops or trainings held throughout the year that do not fit in one of the above categories. Recent examples include Train the Trainer (how to facilitate a COT or other training), Building Club Membership, and How to Start a New Club.
