Happy 90th Birthday Toastmasters
This year Toastmasters as an organization turned 90. District 7 compiled a special Happy Birthday message.
Leaders head families, coach teams, run businesses and mentor others. These leaders must not only accomplish, they must communicate. By regularly giving speeches, gaining feedback, leading teams and guiding others to achieve their goals in a supportive atmosphere, leaders emerge from the Toastmasters program.
Toastmasters will give you the skills and confidence you need to effectively express yourself in any situation. Whether you are a professional, student, stay-at-home parent or retiree, Toastmasters is the most efficient, enjoyable and affordable way of gaining great communication skills.
Toastmasters provides a supportive and positive learning experience in which members are empowered to develop communication and leadership skills, resulting in greater self-confidence and personal growth.

In 2005, I joined Toastmasters because I wanted my presentations to generate a greater impact on my audiences. A couple of years ago, I earned the highest award, Distinguished Toastmaster (DTM). If you want to improve your speaking, leadership and evaluation skills, you couldn’t find a better place to grow. This year is Toastmasters’ 90th birthday. Happy Birthday, Toastmasters!Mike Goss
