Community Outreach

There are many communities around you that would benefit from Toastmasters, such as:

Start Date

Visit Declarations for SUCCESS Toastmasters and see how our community club can help you enhance your self-confidence and build the speaking and leadership skills needed to achieve your goals.

At our meeting, you will see how our warm, supportive atmosphere and self-directed programs enable our members to achieve their communications and leadership goals.  You will also see how our collaborative approach and progressive programs enable our members to reach a level of excellence in speaking skills that is far beyond what is typically achieved in multi-thousand dollar seminars and courses (by comparison, Declarations Toastmasters dues are less than the cost of buying a latte before every meeting).

Our club's commitment to growing our members' communication and leadership skills has been integral to our success. By pairing new members with experienced public speaking mentors, new starts at the Declarations Toastmasters Club have the opportunity to jump start their progress.

Our community of members runs the gamut from college-age to active seniors and comes from many diverse walks of life and ethnicities.  Our members and guests come from across the Metro Vancouver area and work in a wide range of occupations, including education, law, medicine, sales, information technology, homemaking, financial services, insurance, real estate, and many others.

We welcome new members at all levels of communications and leadership experience, as a large part of our success comes from our diversity!

Visit us at our next meeting and see how we can support you in developing your speaking skills. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Get Your Club Online

District 96 has a number of online resources for promoting the value of becoming a Toastmaster and helping clubs gain new members.


BC Toastmasters Facebook Page:


The intended use of this page is to create awareness and promote the value - to the general public - of becoming a Toastmaster. The province of British Columbia is served by two Districts - District 96 and District 21 - so this Facebook Page is a shared resource.


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.


Inspirational Speakers Advanced - new Charter Club

It is always exciting when District 96 welcomes a new club in Toastmasters, and we are excited to introduce a new opportunity for members.

The Inspirational Speakers Advanced Club was chartered on June 24, 2020, and is the brain child of Shayan Shakeraneh. Through discussions with Gene Vickers, a bit of brainstorming and reaching out to fellow Toastmasters, posting advertisements on Facebook, on the evening of June 24, 2020, via Zoom, a Demo Meeting was held, and about 43 Toastmasters joined in to learn more.

Membership Contests

These contests are meant to encourage membership-driving by your members! See the Toastmasters Summary here.

Talk Up Toastmasters
Program Dates: February 1 – March 31

The Talk Up Toastmasters membership program is the chance to encourage your members to invite guests to a special meeting where prospective members can learn about Toastmasters’ many benefits.


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?

Train Your Members

Your existing members already know how amazing Toastmasters can be - leverage their experience by encouraging them to bring guests to meetings! Pair with the membership building contests.

Bringing Guests

Try hosting an educational that demonstrates different ways you can introduce Toastmasters to their peers at work or in their personal lives. You can remind everyone of the elevator pitch, and also reference paper or digital channels to invite guests to attend (eg. email).
