Start a New Club

Toastmasters clubs meet at corporations, churches, universities, libraries and community centers. While community clubs are generally open to anyone, corporate clubs are often limited to affiliates of the company since the some of the fees may be covered by the company and the meeting room may have secure access. If your organization is looking to build leaders from within, now is the time to find out how to Sponsor a Club and why thousands already have.

To start a new club, follow these four steps:

  1. Find at least 20 people over the age of 18 who want to join.
  2. Determine a regular meeting place where you can meet for about an hour a week.
  3. Fill out the Start a Club form and request more information.
  4. Download a copy of How to Build a Toastmasters Club, a step-by step guide to growing a successful club.
