Training should be held before the district year begins, as soon as division and area directors are elected or appointed to office. If this is not possible, hold training early in the district year, but no later than September 30. As part of the Distinguished District Program, at least 85 percent of your district's area and division directors must attend training and a Division/Area Director Training Report submitted to World Headquarters by September 30. Training reports can be viewed and submitted online or printed and mailed in.
The first area and division director training must be a minimum of four hours. Train these officers together in a central location. If your district is geographically large, train area directors by division or group divisions together. One-to-one training should rarely occur. During the year, conduct additional training at district meetings, including executive committee meetings.
