New Clubs

Club Growth Team - Club Extention Chair

With a solid background in Human Resources, Training and Development and Project Leadership, who better to be following up with new club leads than Louisa Davis! Imagine the lives that will be transformed as Louisa reaches out to businesses and communities within our District to start new Toastmasters clubs.

Club Growth Team - Demo Expert

Did you know that Gene has started 23 clubs, not just once but twice! 46 clubs! We couldn’t be more fortunate to have the King of starting clubs, Gene Vickers share his wisdom this year and teach all of us just how easy it is.

A bit about Gene:

“Gene Vickers is the original District Governor of District 96 Toastmasters. He is the creator of the Toastmasters International Core Values Coin. Sharing the value of Toastmasters to others, is one of Gene's biggest passions and what better way to do that, than creating new Toastmasters Clubs.”

Club Growth Team - Mentor Support

I'm pleased to introduce Johanna Rzepa as Mentor Support! As we build new clubs this year, Johanna will work with the Club Mentors to ensure that the clubs are set up for success and will continue to thrive once the mentors have completed. 

Congratulations 2019-2020 Club Mentors

Remember when you went to a toastmaster meeting for the first time and everyone knew what was going on but you? Imagine a brand new club with new members all not knowing everything that happens.

New Club Leads


Do you remember your first Toastmasters meeting? How much have you learned since then? Did Toastmasters help you with your public speaking skills, social life, or even finding a new job?


In District 96, we have many opportunities to extend this life-changing experience to new communities and companies. As of today, we have 140 clubs, and we’d like to grow our Toastmasters family.
