Virtual Meeting Resources
A Toastmasters club provides its members with a safe and supportive environment to become better communicators, leaders, and public speakers. For many, their club gives them a sense of belonging. Considering the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), many clubs are no longer meeting in person and are now meeting online to protect the safety and well-being of its members.
By transitioning to online meetings, clubs allow their members to continue pursuing their goals and provide human interaction that they might not otherwise get. While many aspects of personal and professional lives have been disrupted, we hope Toastmasters clubs can meet online and provide a sense of normalcy to our members.
