Toastmasters International Presence in Georgia Expanding

Providing Communication and Leadership Training to Hundreds

With two hundred sixty-eight Toastmasters International clubs in fifty-four of her cities and towns Georgia is a separate district (District 14) within the Toastmasters International organization. Through the hard work of its Division and Area Governors, District 14 opened nineteen new clubs since July 1, 2008. This number is growing daily.

Each club, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit educational organization, can provide the following resources to their communities: Youth Leadership Programs where upper elementary, middle-school, and high school students are trained in communication (written and oral) and leadership skills; Speechcraft programs where the community at large can partake in communication training; and the Georgia Toastmaster Speakers Bureau which connects companies and organizations with public speakers knowledgeable in a wide range of topics including Leadership, Building Successful Teams, Creative Thinking and Innovation, Motivational and Inspirational, Coaching, Management Skills Training, and Time Management. A goal of District 14 Toastmasters is to bring its educational program to all parts of the state.

District 14 Toastmaster clubs consist of corporate clubs and community clubs. Corporate clubs are open to company employees. Community clubs are open to any member of the community age eighteen and over. Toastmasters International is the world’s largest educational organization devoted to the improvement of communication and leadership skills. The Toastmasters program is a unique self-paced program helping individuals develop communication and leadership skills in a mutually supportive environment. To find a club nearby visit
