What is Toastmasters?
Toastmasters International, a nonprofit educational organization, has been working for more than 84 years to provide for this need and help people conquer their pre-speech jitters. 2009 is the 85th Anniversary of the organization.


From one club started at the basement of YMCA in Santa Ana, California, Toastmasters has grown to become the worlds largest organization devoted to developing peoples public and interpersonal communication skills.


Since that first club was organized by Dr. Ralph C. Smedley in October 1924, nearly four million men and women have enjoyed the benefits of Toastmasters membership. The organization now has over 250,000 members in 12,000 Toastmasters clubs in 106 countries. (source from Toastmasters International's newsletter October 2009)
