Rotary and Toastmasters Together
A Strong Alliance
In May 2019, two long-standing organizations, Toastmasters International and Rotary International, formed a unique strategic alliance, drawing from the strength of their many similarities and complementary differences. The opportunity for Toastmasters members is primarily to establish fellowship and make new connections, contribute more to communities, and potentially elevate clubs. Rotary members have the opportunity to develop new skills and may ask to visit Toastmasters clubs or receive evaluations. Toastmasters also developed eight educational courses for Rotarians and Rotaractors, available on Rotary International’s Learning Center, which can be accessed by their members in nine languages.
Be a part of the opportunity!
So what can you do right now? Toastmasters members and leaders are encouraged to engage in the alliance by:
Welcoming a Rotarian to visit a Toastmasters club
Considering opportunities to hold a joint Toastmasters/Rotary club meeting
Inviting a Rotarian to be a guest speaker at a Toastmasters club
Learning more about Rotary and visiting a local Rotary club
