Serving District 8 Toastmasters in Eastern Missouri and Southwestern Illinois


Our Mission: We build new clubs and support all clubs in achieving excellence.

Fall 2016 Conference Laugh. Learn. Connect.

District 8 Toastmasters Together

The District 8 Fall Conference is far more than a business meeting interspersed with educational sessions.  It's an opportunity for our expanded Toastmasters family to come together, sharing fun times, great lessons, and memorable experiences.


Go beyond the club; come and join fellow Toastmasters from all over the district to laugh, learn, and connect!

A Challenge from Program Quality Director Kat Mokriakow

District 8 currently encompasses 114 clubs.  Kat's Challenge:  For each and every one of them to send at least 5 members to the District 8 Fall Conference.  Is your club up to the task?


As a special treat, all members who sign up (and pay!) for the Full Registration conference package — which includes four meals (Friday buffet dinner; Saturday breakfast, lunch and banquet dinner), educational sessions, and both contests - by October 30 will be entered into a special prize drawing!


So get the word out to your club and see who has the most spacious car.  And remember, this event is open to all Toastmasters in District 8!
