The Toastmaster's Promise

This page has the Toastmaster's Promise.  You agree to this when you sign a Membership Application Form.

Being a Toastmaster means more than simply making a commitment to self-development. 

Everyone who joins a Toastmasters Club is making a commitment to the Club, to its members, and to the organisation as a whole. In turn, the Club commits to helping you get the best out of your membership.

As a member of Toastmasters International and your Club, I promise:

  • To attend club meetings regularly 
  • To prepare all of my projects to the best of my ability, basing them on the Toastmasters education programme 
  • To 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 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 education and recognition programmes 
  • To act within Toastmasters' core values of integrity, respect, service and excellence during the conduct of all Toastmasters activities

Make sure you read the Promise before you sign a membership application form.

Your club may also highlight the Promise when you are formally welcomed to the club and receive your New Member Pack.
