Clubs are assigned to areas (four to six clubs per area). As Area Director, you serve as the direct liaison between the District and the clubs.
Area Directors conduct club visits twice a year within their respective areas to understand and support club needs. In turn, these visits help District leaders understand how to support and meet the needs of each club. They submit a Club Visit Report.
The purpose of an Area is to ensure each club fulfills its responsibilities to its members.
This includes becoming a Distinguished Club, promote and extend the benefits of membership in Toastmasters clubs, help in the organisation of new clubs, facilitate the training of club leaders, encourage clubs to undertake efforts that create greater community awareness of Toastmasters and make Toastmasters available to more people, oversee and conduct quality speech contests in the district.
In addition, as an Area Director you have a limited budget for traveling and to organize your speech contest. Here you can find a detailed guide how to get a reimbursement from the district by using Concur website.
