Toastmasters International 90th Anniversary

Celebrating the Toastmasters International 90th Anniversary!

Toastmasters International (TI) is a nonprofit educational organization that operates clubs worldwide for the purpose of helping members improve their communication, public speaking, and leadership skills. Through its thousands of member clubs, Toastmasters International offers a program of communication and leadership projects designed to help people learn the arts of speaking, listening, and thinking.

The organization grew out of a single club, Smedley Chapter One Club, which would become the first Toastmasters club. It was founded by Ralph C. Smedley on October 22, 1924, at the YMCA in Santa Ana, California, United States. Toastmasters International was incorporated under California law on December 19, 1932. Throughout its history, Toastmasters has served over four million people, and today the organization serves over 313,000 members in 126 countries, through its over 14,650 member clubs.”

Review of Term 2012-2013 by Geetha Sharanya

Review of term 2012-2013

Compressing the memories of 12 months into a clipping of less than 2 minutes has been a difficult task. However, this was much required.

I would like to share with you the story behind it. Success of a Toastmasters club can never be a one-man-show. A team must get together, share the passion, step up to the momentum and strive for the collective ambition of learning and sharing.

For the term 2012-2013, we have been high on membership, high on accolades, high on DCP goals. Most importantly, we have faced the challenges, solved the problems and are better than we were one year before.

If Toastmasters cannot make you a better leader,
you would at least become a
better speaker,
better listener, or
better thinker.

If none of the above,
Toastmasters will definitely make you a
better person.

Enjoy your journey!
