In addition, Pathways Training, Virtual Presentation Skills, Event Planning, Becoming a Sought – After Emcee, Professional Speaker/Trainer Packaging Seminars are a few of the extra events we will be hosting in District 30. It is known that additional courses keeps members engaged and that is in our plans.

There is a Committee of Leadership (C.O.L.) that has launched this year. To accomplish our mission of successful Recognition & Retention Plans, more leadership opportunities in the District are available. We welcome those who seek the opportunities to further their leadership skills. Being a part of this will propel your development in more dynamic ways. We welcome you to participate. Feel free to contact me if you are interested.
I sincerely thank those who have taken a C.O.L. leadership position. Their names & their expertise is listed on our District 30 website.
