Toastmaster Online Magazine

In the December online edition, read additional stories about Toastmasters and their pets and view an online photo gallery of members’ furry friends. While you’re visiting the digital magazine, discover a list of top stories and podcasts from 2021. Don’t forget, you can access all of the online and PDF issues from this past year in the magazine archive.


Invocations and Pledges

Invocations and pledges are popular ways to open club meetings with an inspirational message. They are usually one or two minutes in length, delivered by a designated club member, and are entirely optional. If your club chooses to open a meeting with an invocation or pledge, always take care to respect the diversity of club members and visitors. More information on this topic can be found on the Invocations, Pledges, and Controversial Topics page.
