What is involved in the role of Area Director?

The Area Director is the direct liaison between the district and the clubs and is responsible for leading the area by serving the needs of the clubs.

  • They must first know the needs of the club by conducting club visits (at least twice a year) and organizing Area Council meetings (at least twice a year).
  • The Area Director motivates and assists the clubs to become Distinguished and is responsible for holding Area Speech Contests.
  • The Area Director receives support from their Division Director through mentoring and attending Division Council meetings (at least twice a year) as well as District sponsored trainingevents in May, Sep & Feb and monthly All Leader Calls.

Area Directors report progress of their area clubs to the District leaders through reports presented at Division Council Meetings and Area Director Visit reports submitted through Toastmasters International.
