A great time was had by all at Ashburn Toastmasters Humorous Speech and Table Topics Contest on August 24, 2016. Congratulations to the winners and thank you to all members who supported this contest. Forging ahead this club year to continue our President's Distinguished status!

[02/28/16]   Ashburn Toastmasters is officially President's Distinguished for the 2015-2016 Toastmasters year. Despite some minor mid-year course corrections, we've stayed right on track and not only achieved President's Distinguished earlier than the club has EVER done before, but we're only the SECOND out of 139 clubs in District 29 to even achieve that level.

GREAT work, everyone.

Ashburn officers at TLI. Training creates successful clubs. Will we get the Golden Toaster award again?

On May 21st Ashburn Today ran a story written by Jan Mercker about Ashburn Toastmasters titled "Ashburn Toastmasters Celebrate Ten Years Of Taking The Fear Out Of Public Speaking." With two minor exceptions, this is a very well written article about our club and the benefits of joining Toastmasters. Drew Rougier-Chapman, our Vice President of Public Relations, is not our President. Pam Wilson is of course our President (at least until the end of this month. Then Dave Keener will lead our club.) The article's other mistake can be found in paragraph six. See if you can spot the 'for' which should be a 'from'.
