What key factors are most important as a Region Advisor to help the District achieve success?
Focusing on the District mission is the most important factor in helping a District achieve success. Too often teams get hung up on events like speech contests and lose sight of their true mission. That being said, it is vital to keep members positive through the year and build a pipeline for club growth. Region Advisors must help with any transitions the Districts go through and focus on helping clubs reach Distinguished status.
What key strengths do you bring to the District leaders?
As we rose to the status of Select Distinguished District, I knew that keeping the end goal in mind and sharing that vision with District members would be an effective motivator. I am available to my teams, respond to them in a timely manner, and am a strong trainer and facilitator.
Why are you interested in serving as Region Advisor?
It is a pleasure and a challenge to coach and mentor District teams to achieve their goals. I enjoy the challenge and love working with teams to help them help themselves.
