Dear Valued Toastmaster;

It is an honour to serve as your Club Growth Director!

The holiday season is a time to pause and reflect as we look back on the past year. As we navigate the challenges of the pandemic, we remain open to learning new skills by staying connected online.  Here at Toastmasters, we are grateful for the loyalty of our members who stand by us and our officers who serve.

Our focus is on our member’s growth as they speak and improve on their communication and leadership journey. Additionally, our focus is on membership & club growth by supporting all in achieving excellence.

Each club is unique and has a distinct purpose, lets find that purpose and engage its uniqueness.
Let’s find new ways to enrol new members on our teams.  Let’s try new ways of doing things.
Let’s move ourselves forward into the world of our future members, the ones full of new ideas, energy and spirit.

Never before has our Toastmasters vision resonated with us so strongly, “We empower individuals to become more effective communicators and leaders.”

I invite you to reach out to our members and invite them to take part in toastmasters. And together we will continue to grow our membership and build clubs in our communities and corporations throughout the District. Together, we look forward to creating lasting change in the lives of our members who matter.

To a unique Toastmasters experience!”

Yours in service,
Iona Rodricks, DTM

Interested In Starting A Toastmasters Club?

Interested In Starting A Toastmasters Club?

Did You Know?

  • There are three Toastmasters clubs started every single day all over the world! 
  • It's a great decision for you, your community, your school, or your company!

What's The Process?

  • First, let's talk about the number of people it takes to have a successful club.
    • You need 20 members to charter a new club!
    • If you want to start a corporate club - a club for employees of a corporation - you have the best chance of success if there are at least 50 people in management positions in your company, and/or over 150 employees at your location.
    • If you want to start a community club - a club open to everyone - you have the best chance of success in communities (including surrounding areas) of at least 10,000 that don’t already have a Toastmasters Club.
    • Why not start a club at your college or university? College and Toastmasters make a perfect fit: People go to college to learn and grow, to experience new people and cultures, and to develop new skills. All those things happen in a Toastmasters club as well!
    • If your situation matches any of the above - contact us. If your situation doesn't match the above criteria, but you’re confident you can get 20 members for your club anyway (that’s yourself and just 19 more!) then still contact us. District 86 is here for you too!
  • Second, contact the Club Growth Director to discuss the roadmap and to obtain the forms. 
  • Third, let's talk about launching and running the club:
    • We have Toastmasters that will help guide you through the process of building a new club; we’re here to help!
    • You’ll be part of a team that will include Club Sponsors, Mentors, Area and Division Directors, and the Club Growth Director.


Take that first step and start your journey to improving communication and leadership skills for yourself, your colleagues, your community, or your classmates!  Contact Club Growth Director District #86 to start your journey.

Moments Of Truth For Club Officers

  • Q: Now that Club Officers have met with the outgoing Club Executive and attended District sponsored training, is there any else needs to be done?
  • A: The VP Education, VP Membership or their Education Committee should speak to all their club members about their 2017-2018 Toastmasters goals and how the club can help them achieve it. With larger clubs, all Club Officers help with these discussions.

  • Q: Is there a form or tool that can help with gathering this information?
  • A: TI publishes a Member Interest Survey; some clubs use SurveyMonkey to collect this information; some send out an email; clubs that useEasy-Speak have this tool built in.

  • Q: What do we do with this information?
  • A: Create a Club Success Plan and Budget. The Distinguished Club Program is one part of the Club Success Plan. The Budget helps determine the number of renewing members and the club’s plan for growth. In addition to paying for the club rental fees (if any) and the TI dues, the budget indicate how the remaining funds will be used to pay for educational, incentive and social program such as events with food.

  • Q: Can a club pay the full annual dues to TI?
  • A: Yes, but manually. There is no real benefit to the club for doing this. All payments to TI are non-refundable.

  • Q: Does the Treasurer need to do anything with the Budget once it is approved by the Club Executive?
  • A: It should be presented to the club with periodic updates throughout the year. If the Exec has recommended a change to the fees it charges its member, a motion needs to be presented during the business portion of the club meeting.

  • Q: Which club members vote on a motion to change club fees?
  • A: A simple majority of active club member must vote in favour if this change with a simple majority of active members present.

  • Q: How do you determine if a member is “active”?
  • A: All paid up members meet the simple requirement of “active”, however, some clubs have bylaws in place that indicate that if a member misses a number of meets, then they are not considered active.

  • Q: When the motion passes, how do we amend our club’s bylaws?
  • A: Any active club officer can make changes to their club’s Addendum of Standard Club Options simply by logging in to www.toastmasters.org/ClubCentral. Under Conduct Club Business, click on the option Update my Addendum of Standard Club Options.

  • Q: Some of our members have moved, no longer work at the company or have stopped attending meetings. What can we do? 
  • A: Many clubs lose 30% to 40% of its members at the September renewal. TI recommends that all clubs take advantage of the Smedley Award Membership Building Contest and sign up at least 5 new/dual/reinstated members between August and September. Your VP Membership or the Membership/Public Relations Committee should coordinate this special contest at your club. In addition, club officers should be in regular contact with members that miss meetings.

  • Q: Is there something special we can do at our club to retain member or attract new members?
  • A: This month’s Leader Letter has "Top 5 Ways to Create a Quality Club"

  • Q: I belong to a corporate club and our HR pays for the TI dues. How does this impact our club and members?
  • A: Make your request to HR as early as possible and ensure that TI has the funds by Sep 30th. The grace period from Oct 11th to Nov 30th is no longer valid.

If you would like to conduct a Speechcraft or serve as a coordinator, please contact a Speechcraft Co-Coordinator or the Club Growth Directors, Deridor Collier and Iona Rodricks.

Speechcraft is an extended workshop on communication and leadership where the participants learn about various aspects of communication and leadership, participants are supported by a team of presenters and mentors and are guided by a coordinator. The Speechcraft program allows experienced Toastmasters to present the fundamentals of public speaking to non-members in an atmosphere of a Toastmasters club meeting.

For Clubs, it is a great way to promote membership in community or company club, as Speechcraft brings prospective new members to a meeting to see, first-hand, what Toastmasters is all about.

For participants, it is the quickest means by which non-Toastmasters can jump right into the process of improving their speaking skills, it also serves as a method of recruiting new members for local clubs.

It is structured and run like a condensed Toastmaster meeting with short educational during the meeting and about 15 minutes of coaching at the conclusion of each meeting. Speechcraft’s short duration appeals to people with busy lives who want to improve their speaking skills but don’t want to make an on-going commitment.

Speechcraft students learn public speaking and evaluation skills in a safe, supportive environment and derive many of the benefits we as Toastmasters are already familiar with but may have taken for granted. The only difference is with Speechcraft there is a specific time period. 

The Speechcraft program allows experienced Toastmasters to present the fundamentals of public speaking to non-members in an atmosphere of a Toastmasters club meeting. It’s a great way to promote membership in your community or company club, as Speechcraft brings prospective new members to a meeting to see, first-hand, what Toastmasters is all about.

Benefits of Speechcraft for participants include:

  • Learning to think quickly and clearly
  • Becoming an effective listener
  • Learning to evaluate effectively
  • Using body language and visual aids

  • Reaching out to the community
  • Giving experienced members an opportunity to grow
  • Sharing the Toastmasters experience with others
  • Speechcraft students who decide to join the club are up to speed and already have an Ice Breaker credit towards Level 1
  • Speechcraft students invite their family and friends to the graduation ceremony,– which introduces them to Toastmasters and possibly inspire them to join. 
  • Acquiring additional funds in their treasury if Speechcraft students choose not to join the club (see “fees” below)
  • Additionally, individual Toastmasters can accelerate the completion of their Pathways Levels by fulfilling various roles in a Speechcraft. 
  • One member can earn credit as Speechcraft coordinator

Pros and Cons to Holding a Speechcraft Within or Outside of the Club

Benefits of holding a Speechcraft within the club during the club’s regular meeting time and place:

  • Participants become familiar with the time and meeting place of the club. They know by the end of the program that they can work it in their schedules.
  • Get to know the current members of the club. If they join, they know they are joining friends.
  • The fee they pay for the course can be applied towards their club membership should they decide to join the club sponsoring the Speechcraft.

Benefits of conducting a Speechcraft outside of the club:

  • There are many considerations and benefits of holding a Speechcraft outside of the regular club meeting time and place.
  • Doesn’t disrupt regular club meetings
  • The location where Speechcraft takes place may better suited in terms of location, space, logistics, environment, etc.
  • The fee they pay for the course can be applied towards their club membership should they decide to join the club sponsoring the Speechcraft.

Organizing A Speechcraft Program

A successful Speechcraft requires the commitment of Club Members to assist in conducting the program.

Here is how a club might go about hosting a Speechcraft:

  • The Club’s Executive Committee decides to present the program, then discusses it with the membership. The Club decides whether the program will be conducted during regular Club meetings or outside of the Club. Once this is decided, the Club President appoints a Speechcraft Coordinator, who is responsible for planning and managing the program.
  • The club also needs advertisements (eg., flyers and webpage) – a good task for the VPPR.
  • The Secretary or Treasurer needs to order materials from Toastmasters.
  • The VPM helps to prepare information packets for the students – information about Toastmasters, old TM magazines, meeting roles, basic information about the club, etc.
  • The VPE helps by assigning meeting roles to club members for most meetings.
  • One mentor per participant. The mentor also evaluates at least two speeches by the mentee.
  • Other members to fill the roles of Toastmaster of the Day, Table Topics Master, General Evaluator, Educational Presenter, Leadership Evaluator, Grammarian, Ah Counter, Timer, etc
  • For a general idea of how an Agenda may look like, a sample could be provided upon request or request an example from speech@toastmasters86.org.
  • The SAA should be prepared to welcome the participants.
  • Someone needs to plan the graduation

Turning Participants Into New Members

Speechcraft participants are prospective new members for club. They will join the club if they are impressed by the activities and inspired by members and can see the benefits they will gain from their experience.

The Speechcraft starter kit is available from Toastmasters International for a fee plus tax and shipping. The kit contains complete materials for starting and promoting a Speechcraft program, it includes:

Youth Leadership Program

In light of COVID-19, District 86 is encouraging youth leadership programs to convert to online meetings to protect the safety and well-being of participants.

The Youth Leadership Program is one of the options in a Toastmasters club's toolkit for building membership. While it may have a longer lead time than other options, the YLP is a great way to introduce new potential members to the benefits of Toastmasters.

The YLP is an eight week program that meets once per week for one- to two-hours per session. It is designed to help develop public speaking and leadership skills for those ineligible to attend Toastmasters Clubs. Many of these programs are run for those aged between 12 and under eighteen years of age, but many are targeted at older adolescents. The program is run by a Toastmasters member on a volunteer basis from a local Toastmasters club. 

The program is based on the belief that everyone has the potential to become a good communicator and leader - but this potential needs to be developed.The program helps participants through practical experience, the example of others and guidance from the program’s facilitators.  Meetings generally follow a format similar to that of a Toastmasters club meeting, with an announced agenda that includes practice in parliamentary procedure, prepared and impromptu speeches and the selection of presiding officers. In every meeting, participants learn to apply the principles of listening, thinking and speaking. 

Participants learn to:

  • Overcome the nervousness everyone feels when asked to
    speak before an audience
  • Organize and present their ideas logically and convincingly
  • Listen carefully to others’ ideas
  • Offer advice that will help others improve their speaking and
    leadership skills
  • Participate in – and even lead – group discussions or meetings

Through the eight-session program, participants will increase their self-confidence as they learn. They also make new friends and have fun, reinforcing that Toastmasters is an enjoyable learning experience.   Participants will learn speaking and leadership skills that they will use for the rest of their lives.


For Toastmasters Interested In Youth Leadership

If you are delivering or planning on delivering a YLP, send the information to the YLP Chairs, Madan Chauhan, DTM and Nancy Parkhill, DTM. This information is intended for answering inquiries and tracking the number of YLP’s.

Toastmasters interested in starting a Youth Leadership Program can run one of the eight week programs in conjunction with their club. Toastmasters may be the Coordinator of the program, attending each session, supporting the participants, and giving presentations. Or, you may wish to provide support to another Toastmaster, either attending the entire program, or joining for one or two sessions to give presentations, or to offer feedback to participants.

The Coordinator has an assistant who conducts discussions and substitutes for the Coordinator, should he or she be unable to attend a meeting.

As a Coordinator, your efforts will be recognized as one of the requirements for achieving your DTM in the Pathways program.

Want to be a coordinator? You must complete level one of any path in the Pathways program before you are eligible. Read the Youth Leadership Program Workbook and Youth Leadership Coordinator’s Guide to learn more. 

For Sponsoring Clubs, Schools & Community Youth Groups

Toastmasters planning to sponsor and run a Youth Leadership Program should contact their club leadership to receive resources and advice on running such a program and to have their program recognized appropriately. The sponsoring club should designate one of its members to be the Youth Leadership Coordinator for the program. Please be sure to promote the location, dates and times the program will be running, along with your club information. Please also notify the Club Growth team to update this web page. 

If you are an established teacher, social worker, or other community leader, who is interested in enhancing your existing program, and are interested in partnering with a local Toastmasters club to sponsor a Youth Leadership Program, please reach out to a nearby club that may want to conduct a program for your organization. 

The program is not in competition with school programs or courses, or other established youth projects. Instead, it is a supplement to these programs, providing emphasis on specialized skills and individual needs. 

For Parents and Guardians

If you are a parent or guardian who believes public speaking is an important skill, please reach out to one of the Toastmasters clubs in your area and let them know you are interested in attending their club as an adult who is interested in finding out more about how Toastmasters meetings work. You can easily search for a club in your area using the Find a Club website.

Please note: Participants in YLPs are selected for what they can become, not for what they already have done. The program is not an award to honor those who have already become leaders either inside or outside of the school. It is for young people who have not yet developed the ability to express themselves. Often teenagers want the course as a supplement to their high school education, or to prepare for college.

The duration of each of the eight sessions and the age range of the youth who may participate in any particular program will be set by the sponsoring Toastmasters club. Participants are selected by the sponsoring Toastmasters club or by a cooperating organization (such as a school). Also, in order to give each youth an adequate opportunity to participate, the sponsoring Toastmasters club will set the maximum number of participants for its program. Generally, the programs run with approximately 15-20 people. 

Toastmasters believes that economic means should not limit the opportunity for youths (and others ineligible for Toastmasters Clubs) to participate and therefore the program is sponsored by the Club or other sponsoring organization, and is offered at no cost to participants.
