What is the District Council?
Sometimes called the DC, the District Council is comprised of the following members of District 65:
- All DEC members (see below)
- All club Presidents
- All club Vice Presidents Education
District 65 holds two District Council meetings each year, one during each district conference. These are often listed in the conference agendas as Business Meetings. These meetings are used to consider and vote on items such as approving budgets, electing district officers, changing district procedures and bylaws, re-aligning clubs, and other district business.
Any Toastmaster may attend a District Council meeting and a conference registration is not required to do so. However, only the voting members of the District Council (listed above) may make motions, discuss motions, vote, and transact other business. At times, non-DC members may be asked to deliver reports of some kind and these Toastmasters will be notified in advance of the need for them to speak.

- All Area Directors
- All Division Directors
