Who leads Club Leadership Education?

Certified Instructors and 2017-18 District Leaders

Secretaries:   Secretaries are to receive their 2018-19 training by attending the Secretary CLE at 3 various locations throughout the district OR at the district convention in Peoria, IL on Friday, August 3rd from 1pm-4:30pm.  I strongly encourage the 2018-19 club secretaries to attend the training being offered at the district convention. Whether you are new to the position or are returning, there's plenty to learn this time! This training will focus strictly on secretary duties. Become a great club secretary by learning new nuts & bolts, how to utilize the online reporting system, how to access online resources, and current state and federal requirements. If they cannot attend, then through the online module at

TreasurersTreasurer training will be offered in conjunction with Secretary training.
