Don't forget to give your TOASTimonial!


Share your story or journey and how Toastmasters has made an impact for you personally or professionally. As we kick off 2021, members of your network may have set leadership or communication goals. Your TOASTimonial may provide the nudge that your network connection may need to begin their Toastmasters experience.

Your TOASTimonial will make a big impact and help District 37 generate future members, new clubs, and strengthen existing clubs. Remember to share directly with your network first and watch the responses roll in. Feel free to share an image of your TOASTimonial on our D37 Facebook page. We thank you for your help in promoting District 37 and the benefits that you have experienced through your membership.

Use Meetup for your club!

District 37 offers a free Meetup Access Program allowing clubs to post events to a shared Meetup group page centered in their nearest metropolitan area. This saves clubs about $200 per year in subscription fees. Meetups have proven invaluable in getting the word out about Toastmasters and attracting visitors.  Read more information and find instructions to set up your club here.
