(The President’s Distinguished Club recognition is the highest level of achievement in the Toastmasters Distinguished Club Program. As Matt Kinsey, 2022-2023 Toastmasters International President, had put it in the March 2023 edition of Toastmasters Magazine, “The Distinguished Club Program is the best measure we have of how effective a club is at meeting its mission. It tells us that members are achieving goals. It tells us that new members are joining, bringing a greater diversity of feedback. It tells us that members are dedicated to improving themselves and that officers are committed to getting the training they need so the members of their club can get the most out of their Toastmasters experience”.)

Congratulations to the St-Lawrence Toastmasters Executive Team for having successfully kept us at this level!

It is customary for us to ask new members if they can share some of the reasons that brought them to Toastmasters. Here is what they have to say:

I joined toastmasters to improve my public speaking skills. In my job as a campaign manager working in the animal protection field, being able to communicate clearly, efficiently and with confidence is crucial to my goal of creating positive change for animals.  I look forward to honing this skill with such a talented group of people and believe it will be extremely beneficial for me when acting as a media spokesperson, lobbying government officials or raising awareness in schools about the importance of treating animals with compassion.


I became a member of Toastmasters with the goal of developing into a proficient public speaker, capable of delivering everything from stand-up comedy to startup pitches, and lectures in a clear and engaging way. I am looking forward to growing alongside my fellow members over time. The St. Lawrence Toastmasters Club is arguably one of the finest places to hone our presentation skills, and I believe the work we are all putting in on Tuesday evenings is truly remarkable, and I am more than happy to be a part of it.

                                                       – Gary
