Dear Toastmasters of District 3,

We are excited for the new 2020-2021 Toastmaster year. We are looking forward to growing and learning with you this year. We have some announcements to share with you from our new district leadership team.

 CALL FOR AREA DIRECTORS 
We are still looking for three more area directors for the 2020-2021 leadership year. Being an area director is a great way to build leadership skills, grow relationships, and earn a district service credit for your Distinguished Toastmaster (DTM). The areas where we still need area directors are Agave 4 (West Phx), Desert Willow 2 (Tucson), and Cholla 4 (Northwest Phx). If you are interested please email DD@aztoastmasters.org.

 DCP CARNIVAL 
Introducing the 2020-2021 D3 Distinguished Club Program (DCP) Carnival! Your club can win fabulous prizes by earning DCP goals. The EARLIER you earn goals, the MORE POINTS they are worth. The DCP Carnival runs from July 1st 2020 until April 30th 2021. View more details HERE.

Bonus!!! The first 30 clubs to turn in their full Club Success Plan to DCP@aztoastmasters.org before July 30th will earn an officer pins set for their club.

 TOASTMASTERS LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE (Summer TLI)  
Club officers should attend Club Officer Training to be prepared to have a successful 2020-2021 year. Having at least four (4) club officers attend the training helps the club receive credit for the first part of DCP Goal #9. If you have not registered yet, the final summer session is July 25th. This event is FREE and is open to ALL members! We encourage all your club members to attend!

DISTRICT 3 TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES
