Leadership & Communication Experience

Welcome to Founder's District LACE, Leadership & Communication Experience!


LACE is an opportunity for our members and club officers to obtain high-level training and information on topics that will drive their success.  It was originally developed to supplement Toastmasters club officer training requirements, but because of its high-quality, interactive workshops, it has emerged as a well-known and admired curriculum throughout the region.  LACE is unique to Founder’s District in affordability, scope, value, quality, diversity, and excellence. 

LACE offers training for club officers, advanced officer experiences, judges and chief judge training.

LACE is for EVERYONE!  All club members are welcome!
