Updates from Toastmasters

Toastmasters International continues to monitor the effects of the disease on our clubs, members, and upcoming and current District events. The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has impacted the daily lives of Toastmasters around the world, and the Board of Directors have taken actions to support members and clubs. You can read about them in the communications section below. The health and safety of all Toastmasters is our top priority.


Across the world, travel restrictions are prohibiting clubs from meeting in person. This can lead to a sense of isolation and loneliness, and many clubs have been able to meet online during these trying times to present their members with some sense of normalcy. Visit the online meetings webpage for resources and tips on how to transition to meeting online.
