Public Relations is a fun and exciting role where you get to try different forms of media and communication to promote your club.
What motivates someone to come to a meeting? They want to learn in a supportive and enjoyable environment.
Have your Public Relations messaging reflect that your club is welcoming, vibrant, and creative.
- When using any social media, make sure to add photos to enhance the experience.
- Ask club members to help contribute to your PR efforts, such as posting a blog or newsletter article, or liking, commenting, and sharing social media posts.
- Schedule routine “maintenance” on your club’s website. Are your photos and information current? Build this into your planning schedule.
Public Relations is not just the job of a club’s Vice President Public Relations (VPPR). Every member is a PR ambassador for Toastmasters. Many people find out about our organization through word of mouth. Inspire members to share their Toastmasters journey.
What are your Toastmasters experiences? I invite you to contribute to our website blog, monthly newsletter, and social media channels.
Let everyone know the great things your club is doing!

On another note, we wish a fond farewell to PR team member Tomáš Rakušan. Tomáš joined our committee last year and quickly proved to be a valued contributor to the team. He has moved to Alberta and transferred his membership to his new home toastmasters club. Good luck Tomáš on your future adventures. Our loss is District 42’s gain.
