The purpose of the Community Outreach Team is to increase community awareness of the Toastmasters program and to provide speaking opportunities for Toastmaster club members.
The Community Outreach team presents 30-minute Toastmasters programs before business, educational, community and government groups, social and service clubs, professional and trade associations, and civic organizations, creating interest in forming and joining Toastmasters Clubs. These groups often have contacted Toastmasters International World Headquarters.
The Community Outreach Team is composed
of at least seven members (two are alternates). The Community Outreach
Team program has outlines for the following speeches:
"The Need for Effective Communication and Leadership Today and Tomorrow"
"The Toastmasters Program"
"What Toastmasters Has Done for Members"
For table topics, the topic is "What Toastmasters Means to the Company or Community"
