Gelfand sent quite a delegation to the January 5 Toastmasters Leadership Institute (TLI): All seven officers got trained in their roles, and three other members attended just to learn and make new connections.

The TLI’s theme was “Destination: Planet Toastmasters!” to get everyone thinking about flying high in their goals with Toastmasters and beyond. Besides officer training, TLI offered workshops and presentations about better speech-writing, making meetings fun and other topics. The day wrapped up with a speed-networking even that was fun and informative.
