Toastmasters Website UpdatesMore changes have been applied to the redesigned website. The Find a Club tool now lists up to 200 clubs at a time in one scrolling list (on mobile devices you will page through results). You can view results within as little as a 2-mile (about 3 km) radius and see club meeting locations and times at a glance. Member feedback is a key reason these improvements are being made. We appreciate your comments and review them regularly. Please email us your feedback.

Public relations officers can email questions about how to do this and review Toastmasters’ publicity and promotion handbook, Let the World Know, for more information.
