Message from Division A Director

  Division A leads. We are a Presidents Distinguished Division in District 86 solely because of high achieving clubs and members. 

Division A is a learning community where members are constantly learning and sharing their learning with others and striving to be better. We as Toastmasters empower individuals to become more effective communicators and leaders.

Every Toastmasters journey begins with a single speech. During their journey, they learn to tell their stories. They listen and answer. They plan and lead. They give feedback—and accept it. Through our community of learners, they find their path to leadership.
