As we embark on another Toastmasters year, we are fervently setting our sights on achieving once again the prestigious “President’s Distinguished Club” recognition, as in previous years.

But what does that status really mean? And more importantly, what value does it bring to you, members of St-Lawrence Toastmasters Club in Montreal?

In essence, the President’s Distinguished Club status is the gold standard in Toastmasters. It’s an accolade that’s awarded to clubs that have demonstrated consistent excellence in providing a supportive environment for public speaking and leadership development. For a club to attain this status, it needs to achieve at least 9 out of the 10 goals set by Toastmasters International, encompassing member education, membership growth, and effective club management.

Last week, Yanick (club president) unveiled the new banner to follow our club’s progression.

Yanick (club president) proudly showcases one of our goals completed, as well as red dots on some other goals, bringing us closer to our President’s Distinguished Club status.

So, why should this matter to our members?


The St-Lawrence Toastmasters club in Montreal is delighted to introduce our newest member, Michael.

We like to encourage our members to discuss what motivated them to join our club. Here’s what Michael shares:

I have managed teams for several years; however, I felt I could improve my presentation and communication with my team and the broader organization. Having struggled to move the needle across teams and engage with other organizations productively, I looked around for training. Only Toastmasters offered the sustained environment and feedback I would need to truly evolve.

At Toastmasters, you can move at your own pace and are nudged into achieving your goals. The club is very much about the journey and not the destination.
