Being a Toastmaster means more than simply making a commitment to your self- development. Everyone who joins a Toastmasters club is making a commitment to their club, its members and to the organisation as a whole.

This Toastmaster Promise shows that each member is committed to improving their communication skills and also committed to the other members of the club.

As a member of Toastmasters International and my club, I promise …

  • To attend all club meetings regularly
  • To prepare all of my speeches to the best of my ability, basing them on projects in the Communication and Leadership Program manual or the Advanced Communication and Leadership Program manuals
  • To willingly prepare for and fulfill meeting assignments
  • To provide fellow members with helpful, constructive evaluations
  • To help the club maintain the positive, friendly environment necessary for all members to learn and grow
  • To willingly serve my club as an officer when called upon to do so
  • To treat my fellow club members and our guests with respect and courtesy
  • To bring guests to club meetings so they can see the benefits Toastmasters membership offers
  • To adhere to the guidelines and rules for all Toastmasters educational and recognition programs
  • To maintain honest and highly ethical standards during the conduct of all Toastmasters activities


Commitment to yourself and other members

Commitment to yourself and other members

As you can see, we are committed to help each other – and just as you Promise to become involved with the Club life (as above), you will receive the same support from other Club members. In this way the Club enjoys a positive atmosphere of growth where all members contribute and receive from the Club.
