Who leads Club Leadership Education?

Certified Instructors and 2016-17 District Leaders

Secretaries: The classroom CLE being offered in the district is geared toward 2017-18 presidents and future club leaders. There will not be an education section at the classroom CLE for secretaries.

Secretaries are to receive their 2017-18 training by attending the Secretary CLE at the district convention in Bloomington, IL on Friday, August 11th from 1pm-4:30pm. I strongly encourage the 2017-18 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
