Become a New Club Sponsor or Mentor

Help the District fulfill its mission by assisting prospective clubs to charter and establish a strong foundation so they experience long term success.

These roles can help a Toastmaster in their journey towards DTM.


Identify a new club opportunity in the District or accept an assignment with a new club lead. After the lead has been verified and there is ample interest in starting the club, New Club Sponsors collaborate with Club Growth Director and Club Extension Chair to help the prospective club receive its charter. Sponsors coordinate the demonstration meeting, help establish a strong foundation, and celebrate the club’s successful charter.

Club Mentors instill best practices from the beginning to help the new club learn about Toastmasters traditions while performing meeting roles, and serving in officer roles. Mentors train by example so members experience the fun and success of a well run Toastmasters club. Club Mentors remain with the club for at least six months, attending meetings, and encouraging participation in Area, Division, and District events.
