District Leader Training

District Leader Training is offered to the 2021-2022 District Directors, Program Quality Directors, and Club Growth Directors. District leaders develop core leadership skills, share best practices, and network with others from around the globe. Due to the current global COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 District Leader Training will be held virtually. Because training will be conducted online via Zoom, the eight (8) sessions will be spread across three Saturdays. Additional details will be communicated directly to District leaders.
