About Division:

Sure does take a long time to drive from one club to another! Division M is characterized by a mix of large, small, and smaller urban communities with lots of beautiful rural space in between.   Division M also has beautiful lakes and cottage country within our reach.  Despite differences in our communities, and in the number of people we meet as we go about our daily lives, our members share appreciation for the personal growth opportunities they receive from their clubs. Division M is home to 18 Toastmasters clubs. 


Message from Division M Director - Welcome to Division M.  We are made up of unique and vibrant clubs within our Toastmasters communities.  We are proud to consist of urban and professional corporate clubs to a more relaxed environment in Ontario's beautiful rural and cottage country.  We are proud to bring a lot of heart, dedication and spirit into our District as we continue to enhance our communication and leadership skills.

Division M - Club Officer Training - Phase 1

Division M hosted another fabulous Club Officer Training!

SATURDAY,  JUNE 15,  2019

Innisfil Community Church, 1571 Innisfil Beach Rd, Innisfil ON  L9S 4B3

To receive credit for your club's DCP record, 4 or more executive officers must participate in club officer training for their role for the 2019-2020 year.

Our training is closest to clubs in Division M, and will allow you to build relationships with executive officers from the clubs near you. You'll be working with these people throughout your term in office.

Perhaps you need to choose a training farther away, scheduled for a different date. Whichever training you attend, participate in the breakout session for your role, and sign the sign-in page with your name, club name, your area, and your district (District 86). 

Summer Club Officer Training - Round 1

Division M - Club Officer Training Round 2
