An international organization boasting over 3 million members, whose purpose is to help its users become better public speakers. Membership in Toastmasters is respected by businesses and employers all over the world, and many companies will offer incentives to employees for joining and completing various levels of achievement within the program. There is a very well-defined experience system, which allows anyone knowing a member's status in the hierarchy to determine exactly what kinds of speeches he or she has given and how many, as well as what other business and leadership skills they have demonstrated competency in. Most of the local clubs meet weekly, with state, national and international-level conferences, competitions, etc. less frequently.
