Toastmasters International 90th Anniversary


 This October marks the 90th anniversary of Toastmasters International.  Over nine decades, Toastmasters has evolved from a small network of clubs in Southern California to more than 14, 650 clubs in 126 countries.  Although 90 years have passed, members around the world still have fun while learning and building their skills. 


Dr. Ralph C. Smedley was fond of proclaiming that “Toastmasters is the only organization built on respect for the individual.”  Respect has remained a core value along with integrity, excellence, and service.


Here are some ways your club can celebrate:

·   Plan a history-themed club meeting

 ·   Schedule an open house for the community

 ·   Document your club’s history


   Visit toastmasters.org/90thAnniversary for FREE resources to help you celebrate the 90th anniversary in your club.
