Message from Area 91 Director

Is Area 91 for you? Do you live in Kitchener, Waterloo or Stratford? Then this is the right place. Our Area is composed of two open clubs: Concordia Toastmasters (Waterloo) and Speak Stratford (Stratford). If you are interested in building your public speaking skills, then this is where you want to go.

Our Area also hosts two corporate clubs. If you are a student, alumnus, faculty member or retiree of Conestoga College, then Conestoga College Toastmasters is also for you. If you are an employee with MTD Kitchener, then the MTD Toastmasters Club is your opportunity to start improving your public speaking. 

If you are interested in trying out a meeting, just drop by one of the clubs listed below. There is no commitment and you can start to get out of your comfort zone!

March Announcements

Thank you so much for a great contest! I had an excellent time! I wanted to reiterate my point at the contest that we certainly are becoming much closer and it is great to see so many people out supporting your club and other clubs in the area. Thanks again to Elaine and Speak Stratford for hosting! You guys did a great job and I definitely took home a couple extra cookies.
Congratulations to the contest winners! Make sure that you give them a little recognition at your next club meeting.
That brings us to our Division T contest. Because we are a smaller Area, we can send the top two contestants! Let's make our way out to support our Area!
