Travel and Accommodations

Prior to the district elections, the District Growth and Support team will email each 2018-2019 district director with instructions for submitting election results. Once your district’s list of newly elected leaders is received, the incoming district director, program quality director and club growth director will each receive an email invitation from training@toastmasters.org with instructions for registering for district leader training and the International Convention.

The invitation includes instructions and a link to the online registration tool, which is the preferred method to book flights, hotel accommodations and to view travel details in one place.

Incoming leaders: Please book your airfare through our online registration tool so that the expense is approved and paid through our travel vendor, Travel Edge. If you choose to book your travel yourself, there is a maximum amount that will be applied to reimbursement requests. We recommend contacting training@toastmasters.org prior to booking your travel to find out the amount.

Airline Reservations

Toastmasters International will pay for round-trip transportation costs at the lowest rate for the most logical route between each invited leaders’ home city airport and the local airport DIA – Denver International Airport.


Leaders who drive to District Leader Training may request mileage reimbursement at the current rate stated in the invitation and may not exceed the amount of the lowest round-trip airfare rate. You can contact training@toastmasters.org to find out the maximum amount that can be applied to reimbursement requests.

Hotel Accommodations

Hotel accommodations and any other travel-related expenses (such as baggage fees) are the responsibility of the district leader and might be reimbursed by the district if such expenses are included in the budget. A special rate for rooms has been arranged for incoming district leaders. Once the online registration tool is accessed, hotel information is available on the Hotel tab.

Travel Reimbursement

Leaders who drive or are unable to use Travel Edge for travel arrangements may submit the District Leaders Reimbursement Form to training@toastmasters.org within 30 days after training.

Convention Registration

After training, incoming district leaders will also have the opportunity to participate in the Toastmasters International Convention. The International Convention is the most anticipated event of the Toastmasters year, as members and non-members alike gather together to hear world class public speakers, network with like-minded people, elect International Officers and Directors, and attend the spectacular and soul-stirring public speaking competition known as the World Championship of Public Speaking. For details regarding the event schedule, please visit the convention page.

If you have any questions about this event, please contact training@toastmasters.org for additional assistance.
