Would you like to start a new Toastmasters club at your business or in the community? (from Toastmasters International)

Toastmasters groups are formed every day in a variety of settings. Groups meet onsite at corporations, churches, community centers – even in restaurants. Community clubs are generally open to anyone, while company clubs are often limited to employees of that company and are closed to outside members.

The process to form a Toastmasters group is simple and all of the materials are provided for you. You can start a Toastmasters group onsite at your organization, or you can start a local group in your community.

Steps to Start:

  • Find at least twenty people who want to improve their communication and leadership skills.
  • Determine a meeting location to get together for about an hour a week.
  • Fill out the applicable forms.
  • Schedule your first official meeting.
