2020 Leadership Training

2020 Virtual Leadership Training  - All Districts

Friday,  June 19, 2020
6:00pm-8:00pm Live Zoom Presentation   - 144 Attendees 

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic and the "Shelter in Place" orders, Leadership Training will be delivered through a combination of  Zoom video conferencing and "On Demand" presentations.  Please see details below for the Zoom "LIVE" presentation.

Each year, the Founder Region Board of Directors offers a "Leadership Training" for all members. Included with the training is a "Leadership Handbook." This is a resource to be used by all club officers, committee members, and members. It provides a "one-stop shop" handbook of information to assist club members in carrying out their responsibilities - or just more information to help improve the club experience with knowledge about Soroptimist.
