From RI’s Membership Minute newsletter for February 2020: “Rotary is proud to be working with Toastmasters International, a leading international educational organization that helps its members become more effective speakers, communicators, and leaders.
This new collaboration is designed to enhance your membership experience, as well as help you expand your network, develop your leadership and communication skills, and make an even bigger impact in your community.
There are many ways your club can get involved with the Toastmasters collaboration. To start, find a Toastmasters club and arrange a visit, or invite a Toastmasters member to one of your club service activities or social events.
We expect that interest in joining Rotary may be sparked by this new alliance and urge district and club leaders to quickly follow up with any prospective members.”

Notes from John White:
1) RI’s recent mission statement is, “Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change — across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.” This relationship with Toastmasters is a significant step in addressing the goal described in the last three words.
2) Past Club President Collyer Smith is well connected and heavily involved with the organization and would be glad to chat.
