About Our Club

Bridge Builders Toastmasters is President's Distinguished Once Again!

A Toastmasters Club quality is measured by its level of achievement of goals as set forth by Toastmasters International.  For the sixth year in a row, in 2017-2018, Bridge Builders Toastmasters reached the highest level of President's Distinguished status by attaining 9 of the prescribed 10 goals.  The goals relate to individual member achievement in communication and leadership as well as the number of new members joining the club.  Bridge Builders gained 11 new members this past year.  Several goals also relate to officers attending training and to administrative goals.  In recognition of this President's Distinguished accomplishment, the club will receive a special ribbon from Toastmasters International for displaying on the club banner.

The Toastmasters Mission
A statement of shared values

Every Toastmasters club shares the same mission, clearly defined in the following mission statement:

We provide a supportive and positive learning experience in which members are empowered to develop communication and leadership skills, resulting in greater selfconfidence and personal growth.

Through this mission, each Toastmaster gains a clear understanding of the club's purpose, and the organization as a whole benefits from a shared set of values and goals.


Looking to improve your speaking and leadership skills? Ignite your career? Gain the confidence to speak up?

You’ve come to the right place. Since 1924, Toastmasters International has helped more than 4 million people just like you, from around the world, become more confident speakers and leaders. 

Toastmasters International is a world leader in communication and leadership development, with more than 345,000 members in over 15,900 clubs in 142 countries. This network of clubs and their learn-by-doing programme are sure to help you improve.

Toastmasters will give you the skills and confidence you need to express yourself effectively in any situation. Whether you are a professional, student, stay-at-home parent or retired, Toastmasters is the most efficient, enjoyable and affordable way of gaining great communication skills. You'll learn how to:

  • Formulate and express your ideas effectively
  • Be more persuasive and confident when giving presentations
  • Improve your one-on-one dealings with others
