Building New Clubs

District 37's Mission: We build new clubs and support all clubs in achieving excellence.

Building New Clubs

Toastmasters clubs meet in all sorts of places: corporations, restaurants, colleges, churches, community centers and even at fire stations! Meeting places and access to clubs are typically unrestricted for community clubs. In contrast, sponsored clubs or corporate clubs often have limitations on where meetings are held and who can can access to those locations. Keep in mind that most limitations are reflections of the exchange between these clubs and their sponsors who may be covering some of the fees.

To start a new club, follow these five steps:

  1. Find at least 20 people over the age of 18 who want to join.
  2. Designate and secure a meeting location.
  3. Fill out and submit the requisite new club forms to World Headquarters.
  4. Fill out the Start a Club form and request more information.
  5. Download a copy of How to Build a Toastmasters Club,
    a step-by step guide to growing a successful club.

New Club Mentoring

Once a new club is formed, the next challenge is to keep that interest and enthusiasm for the club by providing them a New Club Mentor. Remember all the questions you had at the beginning of your Toastmasters career? The members of any new club have questions… lots of questions. The New Club Mentor is their to provide guidance. You get to help the members create their club vibe and  “Learn the ropes” of Toastmasters.
