International Service to Members

By Staff

Whether you’re new to Toastmasters or have been active at the club level for some time, it’s good to be familiar with how the organization is governed. It all starts with members in local clubs—the foundation of Toastmasters International. Dedicated local leaders work to build strong club cultures so that Toastmasters all over the world are able to achieve their personal public speaking and leadership goals. It’s been Toastmasters’ core mission for nearly 100 years.

This graphic shows additional governance roles held by member-elected volunteer leaders at the Area, Division, District, and region levels and the International Board of Directors.
