Headquartered in Rancho Santa Margarita, California, the organization has more than 260,000 members in over 12,500 clubs in 113 countries. Since 1924, Toastmasters International has helped people of all backgrounds become more confident in front of an audience. What is Toastmasters? No, we don't make toasters! From a humble beginning in 1924 at the YMCA in Santa Ana, California, Toastmasters International has grown to become a world leader in helping people become more competent and comfortable in front of an audience. The nonprofit organization now has nearly 260,000 members in over 12,500 clubs in 113 countries, offering a proven – and enjoyable! – way to practice and hone communication and leadership skills. Most Toastmasters meetings are comprised of approximately 20 people who meet weekly for an hour or two. Participants practice and learn skills by filling a meeting role, ranging from giving a prepared speech or an impromptu one to serving as timer, evaluator or grammarian. There is no instructor; instead, each speech and meeting is evaluated by a member in a positive manner, focusing on what was done right and what could be improved. Good communicators tend to be good leaders. Some well-known Toastmasters alumni include: Peter Coors of Coors Brewing Company Debbi Fields, founder of Mrs. Fields Cookies Tom Peters, management expert and author Linda Lingle, Governor of Hawaii. Toastmasters International is the leading movement devoted to making effective oral communication a worldwide reality.
