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 fifth year in a row, in 2016-2017, Bridge Builders Toastmasters reached the highest level of President's Distinguished status by attaining at least 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 9 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.
