Who We Are

Chippewa Valley Toastmasters is part of Toastmasters International, an international organization of clubs with nearly 100 years of experience developing individuals’ public speaking and leadership skills. Our members come from all walks of life: writer, small business owner, IT professional, photographer, accountant, software engineer, student, minister, and teacher. We gather with the common goals of growing our public speaking and leadership skills, supporting each other, and expanding our comfort zones.

We help anyone eager to put in the effort to develop their public speaking and/or leadership skills. Why do we work with BOTH public speaking and leadership development? Simply put, it has been long observed that good communicators make good leaders and good leaders are good communicators. Regardless of your personal focus, we are here to help.

Our Mission: We provide a supportive and positive learning experience in which members are empowered to develop communication and leadership skills, resulting in greater self-confidence and personal growth.
