One of the oldest clubs in Seattle and founded more than half a century ago, West Seattle Toastmasters Club 832 is a thriving group with a growing, diverse membership. Some are currently in the workforce, some retired; some with public speaking experience, most without. Our membership is open to everyone 18 years of age or older. Guests are always welcome. There’s a spot here for you!

Among the many reasons our members have chosen to be part of West Seattle Toastmasters Club #832 are:

  • To improve our speaking and presentation skills for personal and professional reasons.
  • To challenge ourselves to step out of our “comfort zones” when in a group setting.
  • To receive positive reinforcement and suggestions for improvement in our presentation skills. ALL new members are assigned a Mentor!
  • To enjoy entertaining speeches and presentations on a monthly basis.

Our History – Club #832 was founded on April 27, 1950. Originally we were called the “Federal Toastmaster’s Club of Seattle”. Toastmaster Club’s were originally for business men, but by the 1970’s, women were invited to join and the Toastmaster organization today hosts a diverse membership that is global in it’s scope. Club #832’s membership was “drawn from Federal service military and civilian personnel in and around Seattle”. The original officers came from the General Services Administration, the FBI, the Seattle Port of Embarkation, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and the Public Housing Administration.

Why Choose Us – We have enthusiastic leaders providing dynamic leadership. Club #832 regularly achieves distinguished status in the Toastmasters International organization. We produce club contest winners who often progress to Division and District level. We video tape speeches and evaluations to provide valuable feedback to our speakers.
