Standard Meeting Roles
Toastmasters International Standard Meeting Roles
Toastmasters International has defined some guidance to clubs about roles to have in a Toastmasters meeting. Clubs have a lot of flexibility to determine their own programmes, and may have more, less or different roles to those listed – and clubs deviating from this list should take the time to help their new-comers, by documenting their roles in a similar way.
Toastmasters provides describes a good description of the Standard Meeting Roles resume.
The District Convention is the major event on District 73’s annual calendar, held typically in May each year.
The Convention combines the ultimate District 73 speaking competitions, the formalities of the District Council meeting, and a series of workshops all in one event. The foremost competition is the International Speech Contest, where the winner gets to go to the International Convention to compete amongst rivals in other Districts around the world!
In recent years, the District Convention is been held in;
- Launcestion, Tas, 2015
- Melbourne, Vic, 2014
- Adelaide, SA, 2013
Our upcoming District Convention is to be held in Adelaide. Check out the Convention website for the coming event.

The TI information usually has full details on a club’s meeting place street address, and frequency of meetings.
Finding Clubs “Near you”
Some members like to find clubs nearby that they might visit. In fact, visiting other clubs can give opportunities to speak in front of a new audience, to see how other clubs operate, and to hear others speak. You may even be given the honour of providing an evaluation at the club you visit. You can find clubs using the same listings at http://www.d73.toastmasters.org.au/clubs.
Details of current District Officers are still available on the Public website.

District 73 has a large and diverse range of clubs. Many clubs in Toastmasters are specialised to meet the differing needs of the various communities that they support. Some clubs focus on developing leadership skills; others focus on special interests or simply as a platform to give advanced speakers more challenges.
