Club Officer Training and more!!

To best serve your club members and optimize your own learning officer training in your role is essential. Clubs with trained officers have more satisfied members, and more likely to achieve their goals. Member retention is also better when members are more satisfied.

Your club achieves Goal 9 of the Distinguished Club Program when at least four of its club officers—president, vice president education, vice president membership, vice president public relations, secretary, treasurer and sergeant-at-arms take the training.

Please register early as this event sells out quickly.
