Each year, international officers and directors and region advisors visit districts.
International Officer and Director Visits
International officers and directors conduct district visits as ambassadors promoting the Toastmasters organization. These visits give district leaders an opportunity to observe visiting dignitaries in action. Officers and directors help the district by leading club-building visits, presenting corporate recognition awards and representing the organization at district events. These visits generally occur during district conferences.
District leaders and World Headquarters staff work together to coordinate visits. A district must accept a visit from an international officer or director. Once a district accepts a visit, World Headquarters, the visiting dignitary and district leaders schedule a conference call to discuss plans for the visit. District leaders are asked to secure club-building opportunities, media events and corporate recognition visits to ensure the district visit is a success.
Region Advisor Visits
Region advisors visit districts to provide marketing support and expertise, and to expand district leaders' capacity to grow clubs. During visits, region advisors help district leaders by teaching marketing skills and focusing on goal planning. These visits generally occur during Toastmasters Leadership Institutes or district executive committee meetings.
Region advisors and district leaders collaborate to plan region advisor visits. Districts are asked to secure club-building opportunities for the region advisor to attend with the club growth director. This provides an opportunity for the club growth director to be trained by the region advisor, if necessary, in developing marketing skills while promoting Toastmasters.
