How to Build a Toastmasters Club

Congratulations on your exciting decision to start a Toastmasters club. Because of dedicated people like you, more than 1,000 new Toastmasters clubs are chartered each year and hundreds of thousands of people worldwide are becoming more successful communicators and leaders. In deciding to start a club, you have taken on an important leadership role. Ralph Smedley believed that people can discover their latent leadership talents by participating in the regular activities of a Toastmasters club.

Need Club Promotion Ideas?

Sometimes we just need ideas and how to get started on a worthwhile project. If you’re like me, reading a quick list of ideas others have used can get the juices flowing and a plan comes together. Adding an Open House (or two or three) to your Club Success Plan this year as a way to promote your Club, is a sound idea. But then what?

THANK YOU so much for caring so much about your club! Of all the years this is definitely the year that your club needs your leadership.

There are lots of people that don’t know what Toastmasters is so keep inviting!

People that show up to online meetings are looking and okay with online meetings. For those clubs that are meeting online, keep in mind, this is the way of the world now. Communication and Leadership never go out of style. Many people won’t ask to join, they are waiting to be asked.
